I walked into the Cabarrus County Arts Council gallery last night and four of my kid's book paintings had little red stickers. They'll be in the permanent collection of the new children's book room at the county library in Concord, which makes me so happy that they will be shared with lots of kids. I have six pieces in this current Arts Council invitational show, "Hey Diddle Diddle- art that calls to the child in all of us". And what excellent company I'm in- many artists showing zippy, playful 2d and 3d work! Show is up through December 19, if you find yourself anywhere near Concord, NC.
