I attended the NFAL Members Juried Awards last evening and was pleasantly surprised to find out I won 2 awards. Definitely my best Monday night in a while :) My entry was a sculptural piece "Eternal Flame". The Awards ceremony is professionally done and very well attended. Every so often artists receive recognition for their work. I guess it was my turn last evening. I was sitting in the crowd and my name was called out for the first award. I was basking in the euphoria of receiving this and heard my name called again.... this time for the second award and accompanying cup. I have to this does not occur very often. Needless to say, I was flush with joy and I don't think I will ever forget this evening :) These Awards are greatly appreciated to motivate and encourage us to move forward. NFAL ( Nepean Fine Arts League) is a great group of artists and the artwork at the exhibition is outstanding! Exhibition runs from May 24- June 26, 2013 at the Atrium Gallery & Centrepointe Theatre Ottawa, Ont. Please drop in if you're in the area.
