The opening ceremonies of The Shuswap Lake Festival of the Arts was last night. My heart skipped a beat when I saw the blue ribbon on my mosaic tiled table! This is the first time I've entered a juried art show. There were two categories -- 2d (photographs, paintings) and 3d (glass work, sculpture, clay, wood, etc.). I entered four pieces -- 2 necklaces, a hair barrette and my year long project of refinishing and creating a mosaic tile surface on an antique table I had found. There were more than 400 entries in the show with many beautiful works of art as there is quite an artist community in the area, so I feel honored to have received such recognition for my work.
