Honorable Mention Award

It feels good when your work stands out and catches the eye of a juror. In this case, my porcelain sculpture The Unbearable Heaviness of Being (I ) received an Honorable Mention at the Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts where it was exhibited in a show entitled For and About Women. The juror was Traci Horne, art history professor at VCU.

I made this sculpture several years ago, and it has been exhibited at various venues. I am constantly reviewing calls for artists to see where past works may have a chance to be exhibited, often years after their creation. This particular work was part of a series examining the high price women pay as ‘collateral damage’ during wartime.

Interestingly, I have just recently begun sculpting a new series of small porcelain figures , but with a different emphasis. I want to create almost androgenous  miniature figures which project those BIG human emotions like inner turmoil, fear or introspection.
