Filled with pride

I’m very excited to announce that *two* of my mixed-media shadowboxes were chosen to be part of the 2013 Twin Cities Pride Art Exhibition, which will be displayed at the 2013 Twin Cities Pride Grand Marshal Reception on Friday, June 21, 2013, at The Aloft Hotel Minneapolis, and during the 2013 Twin Cities Pride Festival on June 29-30 in Loring Park.

Not only will my pieces, Please Come With Me (below, left) and I Choose You (below, right), be a part of the exhibition, but they’ll also be up for Best of Show, People’s Choice, and Chairman’s Choice awards.
