Dog Dance Art Show-Part Two!

What a whirlwind weekend it was! Mother's Day celebrations and of course the Dog Dance Art Show opening night are now history! The art show was awesome! Trying to photograph the event and talk with the artists and friends at the same time was no easy feat! Dave was kind enough to grab my camera and snapped some photos! Thank-you kind husband!
Nancy Dutmer's art studio is a small space but the artwork was displayed with an artist's eye for balance and interest! A dark pink wall featured the miniature works of art as well as my hooked rug pieces. I found it fascinating to see my work intermingled with other artists creations. It was a great experience to meet other working artists in my area and talk about what we do! Talk about inspiration and creative energy! My photo work doesn't begin to capture the shows depth of talent, but this is what I have!
