Boulder City Fine Arts Award

Originally uploaded by diana.bracy

This is my first Juried Fine Arts Show in April of 2008. I was so shocked that they called my name and gave me the award!

When I was setting up at this event, there were over 100 very talented artists from 7 Southwestern states. When I saw their Art, I began shaking like a leaf. I was afraid that they send me home because my Art was nothing like the beautiful pieces I saw there. The judges kept coming back to my booth with stern looks and whispering between themselves. My wonderful husband, Vince, kept me on both feet and assured me that I did indeed, belong there. They called my name!

Needless to say, I was walking on air the entire weekend. Who knew? Little old me became a Juried Fine Artist. I am still reeling.

Kennedy Brothers “Whispering”

Kennedy Brothers “Whispering”
This piece shows the Kennedy brothers whispering measures 21 x 17 1/4. What do you think they are discussing? This picture is so endearing. Again, I have used my usual batik, hand dyed and commercial cotton fabrics to complete this image. You can actually see their neck ties in the photo. You may need to sit back away from your computer to see it better. It reminds me a little of abstract art. I used twelve different fabrics for the palette. This one strikes a very tender cord in my heart. THIS PIECE RECEIVED A FINE ARTS AWARD AT BOULER CITY’S 23RD ANNUAL FINE ARTS FESTIVAL ON APRIL 19 AND 20 IN BOULDER CITY, NEVADA!!!!! This was my first Fine Arts Festival and I am so proud to have share the common ground with more than 100 other wonderful Artists from 7 southwestern states.
