Hello Nancy I just wanted to let you know of a great opportunity to help our youth that attend the Boys and Girls Clubs of Philadelphia. Wells Fargo is helping us to fund raise during our Annual Wine and Cheese Show Case on May 10th at the Philadelphia Convention Center. We are looking for fellow artists to donate or create an art piece for the event's live and silent auction. There will be many large companies as well as 2,000 people in attendance bidding on your work bring you a lot of exposure.
If you are interested in helping us out please contact:
My formal training in fine arts was in oil painting. Three years ago, I found myself longing to create three dimensional works. Then the love affair with ceramics began!
Clay has a say when sculpting. It tells you each day what it will and won't do and there is a window of time that you must stay in with each level and stage of sculpting. I find that both frustrating and invigorating!
