YAY!!! I am a United Arts Grant recipient for 2011!!
My grant is to be applied to a specific exhibit of paintings that I will have this year. My proposal included a section which also encourages participation by my social networking friends.(I will share more details later). The Gallery at Avalon Island will feature my paintings and I invited my friend Aurora to exhibit her sculptures. Women are the primary subjects of American Venezuelan artist Aurora D. Rincon. Aurora and I have been developing plans and are quite excited about this exhibition. Our exhibit is titled "Amalgamation”.The exhibit will be May of 2011 in Orlando, FL. Please contact me if you would like additional information for your publication or could possibly feature us in an interview prior to the exhibit.
I am very thankful to United Arts for working to provide funds enabling the grant program for professional development. Special thanks to Margot Knight and Mary Patrick of United Arts for their steadfast involvement in elevating our arts community. I also want to thank the panel members Bonnie Hubbard, Rick Lang, Anna McCambridge, Dario J. Moore, Dennis Neal and Jeremy Seghers for their time and dedication.
