Something................

..............Red, the annual (mostly) AIA-sponsored downtown art show debuted tonight. The juried work certainly lived up to the show and many wonderful pieces are currently hanging in various downtown locations. My pieces are at the Wild Pear Restaurant ("1.Reduction" - honorable place winner in the show) and at the Calusa Gallery (shrine, "Door Beneath Tomorrow").

12/2: photos from the event are posted HERE

Also debuting tonight is the Holiday Gallery at the Rountree Gallery Upstairs. My mini-masks are available at the Holiday gallery. I'll be participating in the gallery proper (downstairs) in January.
