Today two of my pieces were recognized at the St. Bernard Art Guild Members Fall Show. My collage, “Purple Blend” received an Honorable Mention in the Under Glass category. My dot art painting, “va” received a Best Abstract Plaque. Plaques are awarded for specific themes, i.e. best spiritual, maritime, portrait, etc. The judge was Kathy Miller Stone, an artist from Baton Rouge.
This show is the first one in the St. Bernard Government Complex since Hurricane Katrina. The building is located in Chalmette, which was devastated by flooding. At this afternoon’s reception, the St. Bernard Art Guild celebrated its 40th anniversary and recognized past presidents who attended.
