Group of 9 Artists Reception

We had such a fantastic turnout for the Group of 9 opening artists reception. Thanks to all of you who attended. It always makes me feel so good for the artists when we have such an exciting response. We all know how hard these artists work to put together those last few pieces making a show really sing. Here's a sampling of images from the evening. Had it not been so hectic we would have photographed all the artists! -- Next time for sure.

Group of 9:
Greg Jones - Tom Marino - Sally Hobbib Rumman - Neil Frankenhauser
Jan Dyer - Phil Hazard - Dustyn Bork - Jan Thomas - Glenn Osborn

Calling all Creatives

The submission deadline nears, 11.30.2009, but you're creative, bang out something fantastic. You know we all thrive on pressure, creatives are only encouraged by deadlines.

Using the tree as a metaphor, develop a graphically compelling banner centered about the topic of sustainability. Banner artwork will be submitted online, juried by three national award-winning designers, and put on display throughout Downtown Toledo on light pole banners. Once the banners come down from the streets, the artwork will be converted into one-of-a-kind tote bags for purchase. Proceeds of tote sales will go to the Young Artists At Work Program.

You got the idea go to Urban Forest Project for details.

Glass Demo

Visited the glass Pavilion this past Friday night for the glass demonstration. What a great time. With a sro crowd everyone was having a relaxing and enjoyable evening. Next time you're looking for something different to do on a Friday evening consider this. TMA Glass Pavilion
