I’m close to finishing my artwork ready for my art exhibition in September! Along with 3 rooms and a couple of lobbies lined with my art, in the installation room at the venue we’ll be screening a movie/slide show with photos from readers around the world. I’m calling it the Happy To Be Here Project. Bold souls from near and far have gotten involved, and bold souls who visit the exhibition can see what other kindred spirits are seeing and doing.
Project submissions are now closed!
