Art of the State

The State Museum of Pennsylvania has an annual show where the highlight artists in the state. This was my first year applying. Out of over 2000 entries, they chose 100 and my piece “Winter” was one of them! Today was the opening, and I was there to meet the other artists and art fans! It will be there through the end of the year, so if you get out to Harrisburg, it’s the big museum right next to the capitol building!

Here’s a link to a gallery of all the artwork.

Here’s the link to all the artists with their resume and statements.

Here are some pictures of me at the gallery, talking to people about my artwork, and relaxing with some brunch across the street from the museum!
