Dale Chihuly developed an impressive and inspiring exhibit to celebrate the 15th anniversary of The Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The exhibition is designed to respond to the horticultural and natural conditions of each site. The Sculpture Park itself is one of the world's foremost collections of Modern and Contemporary sculpture. Set amidst diverse gardens and landscapes - it's a treasure.

I am honored to have three prints selected by Governor Jennifer M. Granholm and First Gentleman Daniel G. Mulhern to hang in the Lansing Governor's residence for the coming year. The Governor's Residence Michigan Artists Program brings artwork of Michigan artists into the public areas of the residence for one year. There will be an artist reception - date to be determined.
The 3 pieces selected are Winter Thaw, Shy That Way and Guardian.
On Thursday, August 12 I demonstrated Japanese woodblock printmaking at Lansing Art Gallery during the lunch hour. A very hot and humid day in the 2 story front window made printing........interesting. A good crowd of people came and went with more watching from out on the sidewalk.
The demo was sponsored by Mid-Michigan MRI. Lansing Art Gallery is located at 113 S. Washington Square, one block from the Michigan State Capital.
