2008 Utah Art Festival

"Take Part in Art" was the theme of this years four day festival and a lot of people took part. I am not certain of the attendance yet, I know that I did my fair share of talking. I saw a lot of new artists this year and I am always amazed of what people can create.

I am grateful that I was one of many invited demonstrating artists this year. I enjoy teaching and will share information with anyone who is interested in knowing more about glass art and the process.

Thank you to everyone who participated in putting together this phenomenal Arts Festival and of course all who sponsor it.

conjunction with Gallery Stroll, celebrating this years 16 winners.

I would like to Thank Juror Jennifer Morla and the Utah Arts Council for choosing me to participate in this years show. When I applied my hope was to get a critique on my application and suggestions on what to improve on. I was completely surprise when my work was selected.

ost of the participants are in fields such as Architecture, Product Design and Graphic Design. Everything from a new design for a wheelchair, Transit shelter project to modern Navajo residence constructed from recycled or discarded materials with an emphasis on using solar water heating systems and energy efficiency.

Again Thank you to the Utah Arts Council and all of the Participants of the show.

Opening Day at Farmers' Market

Well Summer is finally here..... The Farmers' Market opened with a huge bang. Patrons were as excited as I was, people were starting to arrive around 7:30 am. The weather had to have played a big part in such a successful day. I love seeing all of my market friends and spending the day in the park. Thank you again everyone. See you next Saturday.
