Award Ceremony For Art Show - Opens Tomorrow
As soon as I walked in, I saw mine upstairs looking over the whole gallery.
The curator of the show and I stood and watched the people who when over to it. Some squished up their faces and walked away clueless, but most had an 'ah-ha!' moment when they understood it. AND we counted at least 8 people who touched it. It kinda begs to be touched!
215 works of art! AND so many people there!
One name stood out to me, an old family friend. But I didn't see her there, not that I would recognize her. I am not a lil kid anymore - so I am sure she has changed too!
Art work from all over the nation: CA, MA, PA, VT, and of course NY (just to name a few).
They called all the winners up, one at a time, for a group photo. There I am on the end (I wished I stood up straight).
And here are all the winners.
I saw two men there who I couldn't help but stare at - they looked SO familiar. I feel bad that I stared. It was too busy to go up to them and say: hey you look familiar. So I held back and eventually had to go home.
BUT in the car on the way home, don't you know, I remembered them!!
Daniel Buckingham and Greg Lawler, they were a teachers at Munson William Proctor in the early to mid 90's. I don't know if either of them are still there. I wish I had gone up to them and said hi. But now I am the creepy girl who stared at them. Sigh
