30th Annual Mesa Contemporary Crafts Opening Reception

The opening reception for the Mesa Contemporary Craft Show was on Friday night. The show was really great and a wonderful display of what is going on in the craft world today. I wish a bit more work had been included in the show, I never mind if a gallery is a bit packed (just means more to look at), but the juror did a great job selecting pieces that were very diverse, while also complimenting eachother.
I had so many friends and family come to support me and I appreciate you ALL! Thanks so much to everyone who came. Really. You guys mean a lot to me:) My mom always takes a picture of me by my work. I get really red and embarrassed every single time, but I love her for it. Thanks mom! See, you always said someday I'd thank you:)
Anyway, the show was awesome and you should all go see it if you can. It stays up until March 15th.
Just in case you are curious, here are some of my favorite pieces in the show:

Orange Fruit Bauble by Angela Cunningham.

Vital Entity by Helen Otterson. Booster Series by Natalya Pinchuk.

Stonehenge Bookends by Seth Rolland.

Siren by Lilyana Bekic.
