Craft Revolution Exhibiton at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art
I am thrilled to have my first stained glass and painted sculpture artwork, Delighted, included for exhibition at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art. Since my artwork didn't make this emailed announcement here is the piece that will be on exhibition (should it have arrived safely today), I want to share it here. I also hope those of you out in southern California will go see this celebration of creative work.

About the Show
Craft Revolution shows works with the unity of inspiration and skill philosophers call “craft” --- in drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, ceramics, weaving, architectural plans and maquettes, interior design, furniture design, fashion design, photography, video, installation art, and objets d’art in all mediums, including wood, metal, stone, clay, paper, textiles and glass. Craft is the bond between concept and technique, the link between hand, mind, and heart. Our juror selected unusual, avant-garde, hybrid artworks that merge together, in a single piece, elements of fine art and the traditional crafts. Craft Revolution illuminates an important truth about contemporary art: we can no longer categorically separate craft, fine art, decorative art, and utilitarian, designer objects.
Sophisticated, well-crafted objects --- no matter the medium --- inevitably elicit unfrisson of desire.
