I’d like to invite you to the annual Bemidji Sculpture Walk Installation Event and Reception where you will be able to see the Surrealist interpretation I’ve created for this event. I am so honored to be a part of such a public event that celebrates community artist.
Unfortunately I will be unable to attend because I will be attending a wedding ceremony (which is also very important to me) but I do plan to have something read in place of my actual presence which will introduce me and talk about the art I am offering to this event. This art will be auctioned off in September and the proceeds will help continue the funding for this program. So please come out, enjoy the beautiful and creative art, and support local artists.
