2009-2010 Purchase Award at West Virginia University-Parkersburg
I was the recipient for this award for this year, along with another fellow for a ceramic piece he created. Two pieces are chosen by the school to purchase and keep in their permanent art collection. A huge honor...and my piece will be hung and have a plaque for everyone to see and hopefully enjoy! I received my cash award on Monday at their board meeting and was on cloud nine and a half!!!!! Hated to part with this one, it was a self portrait and had so much hidden meaning...but anytime someone sees it, their face lights up, and that is what it is all about!
