Everyone has the opportunity to win their favorite pieces by purchasing raffle tickets. Miniatures raffle tickets are $5 each, or $30 for seven. Tickets will be available until January 13 at 5:00 pm, with winners announced online by January 19.

Moving in the Right Direction

A wonderful pat on my back to ensure me I am heading in the right direction…Or at least in some direction!
My photograph “Innocence, Big Sur” has been selected by juror, Linde Lehtinen, PhD, for inclusion in the 2016
International Juried Exhibition. This image will be displayed in the Center for Photographic Art gallery, website and published in the
2016 International Juried Exhibition catalog. They say I can be very proud of this achievement considering there were over one thousand submissions from around the world and only 45 images were selected!
Please join me, other artists and Linde Lehtinen on Saturday, November 12, 2016, at 5:00 pm for an opening reception, catalog sales and announcement of winning entries – Thank you Lynn for being my wonderful model!
