Stoneworks Studios and Gallery in Ventura hosted their Games People Play First Friday art show on Friday night, March 4. I made a new small piece, Hopscotch, and entered my crazy gambling hat Luck Be A Lady. Hopscotch is a small studio quilt mounted on an 8″ x 10″ stretched black canvas, and it’s a tribute to my memory of playing hopscotch in the schoolyard during recess when I was a child. (You can’t see the top of the hat, but it’s a round Las Vegas gambling chip pillow that was a Goodwill score.)
The Ventura County Arts Council juried art show Solamente: Singular Forms, Features, People, and Things is on display in the atrium lobby of the Ventura County Government Hall of Administration from March 4 to April 12, 2016. The show reception was held on Friday, March 18 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. Upon arriving for the reception, I looked up to the next floor and saw my piece If Six Was Nine. (The piece next to it, a giant eye made from merino wool, received first prize, and the artist was a first-time entrant.)
Of course I had to go upstairs to visit Jimi. I did not win a prize, but I enjoyed seeing so many delightful entries in the show.
