Last night I took one of my paintings "Gorge on the High Road" to the juried 20th annual art showcase sponsored by the CAC of Eastern Jackson County. I was also recognized by the Independence Art Association as their volunteer of the year. I received a lovely plaque engraved with the honor and my name. Pat Betteridge, an officer of the IAA and my friend, introduced me and gave me the plaque. Several other honorees were recognized from various other organizations. There was food, wine, dancing, an art showing, a a really good time was had by all.
Thanks to the Independence Art Association for voting me their volunteer of the year. They are a great organization and one of the best art associations around. They offer companionship, demonstrations, programs, gallery space opportunities, and most important of all friendship with fellow artists.
