New York exposure

I Dwell in Impossibility #14
Even as I continue to write unsuccessful grant applications (perhaps some will be successful again one day) and dye wool for Shepherd's Harvest Festival and shrinkwrap artwork for Art-A-Whirl, I keep sending show proposals and competition entries.
This week I heard from 2 New York the affirmative!  Hooray!

I Dwell in Impossibility #14 , a collaboration with my son John Hensel, will be showing at the venerable Ceres Gallery.  I have wanted to show there ever since I heard about them more than 20 years ago.  The 12th annual National Juried Exhibition has given me the opportunity.

The juror, Lori Bookstein, viewed 2,200 works in curating this exhibition.  Cool!

Competitions are not necessarily great career builders, but, hey!  It gets the work seen so it can begin to tell its story.

If you are in the New York area...Please go see the shows!  I'll be slaving away in the studio out here in Minnesota while you party for me;-)
