Honored that my piece "Dad Chair" received a Juror Award in "Warm and Cozy: art that comforts" at the Annemarie Sculpture Garden and Garden Center, a Smithsonian Affiliate, in Solomons, MD. More details here. On view through Jan 21, 2024 in the Kay Daugherty Gallery.
"Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center is pleased to present our fall exhibit, Warm and Cozy: art that comforts. The exhibit features artwork that captures the sensation of feeling warm, and the physical and emotional responses we have to being warm. One of our most basic human needs, warmth can signify comfort, security, intimacy, and community connection. Expect to see depictions of sun-drenched landscapes and intimate cozy interiors, heartfelt portraits and loving embraces, plush soft sculpture and tactile works, warm wearable art, multi-sensory installations, or nostalgic subjects and family traditions. Artwork in this show will envelop the viewer and induce a sense of comfort, security, and contentment."
