OC Fair 2017 ceramic awards!

I submitted three pieces to the Profession Ceramics Fine Arts Competition at the OC Fair 2017. Received First place and Division Winner for one piece and the Dan McGrath Memorial Award for excellence in ceramic arts for another.

Summer time is the OC Fair 2017 "Farm, Fresh, Fun!"

If school is out and Summer is on I must be at the Orange County Fair 2017! Here are some pictures of the Fair. I have been helping with the OC Fair Pottery venue and managing the Muddy's Studio gallery. We have 24 artists in the Gallery and 40+ demonstrators making ceramics and talking to the crowds. In the first 10 days of the Fair we have sold 200+ pieces in the Gallery and this past Saturday there were 75000+ people who came to the OC Fair. You can check things out at OCFair.com for dates times and promotions. Here are more pictures.

Art show UPDATES

Well the weather really did in a lot of the end of the year shows. Even the ones that were indoors suffered from low attendance. But what you going to do! My next show will be the 57th Annual Hillcrest Festival of Fine Arts, Feb. 24-26, 2017. This is held at the Hillcrest Congregational Church, 2000 West Road, La Habra, CA. 90631

I am also preparing pieces for the second physical jury (yippee made it past the first jury round) of the Laguna Festival of the Arts in Laguna Beach, California.

In October of this (soon to be) past year 2016 I acquired a working studio space within the Muddy's Studio complex. So now I have a more private space to create my pieces! ( see pictures below!) Thank you Kevin and Gina Myers for establishing such a great place to do clay! I also teach a Muddy's Thursday evenings class if you ever want to get dirty!

I hope to be doing more shows in April- May so stay tune! I hope this new year 2017 brings all of us personal growth and achievements!
