For those of you who neglected to stop by last week, I'll wait just a moment for you to catch up. tickticktick...it's toward the bottom...tickticktick...
Moving on . . .
The opening reception at The Burkholder Project was nothing short of amazing. Nearly 800 people walked through the front door on a lovely spring evening in the Haymarket District of Lincoln, Nebraska.
The first Friday of each month is set aside for the galleries and art spaces in Lincoln to open their doors for what becomes an amazing gallery walk. After a long cold winter folks were ready to head out and see what's been happening in studios and galleries in the state's capitol. They weren't disappointed.

Finally, I am absolutely delighted to share with you that a piece from my Square Mile Series exhibited at The Burkholder Project, "Late Night Whispers", was purchased by Doane College, a private liberal arts college in Crete Ne., for their permanent collection. What an honor. I'm still smiling over that one.

By the way, comments for the Big 100 Posts Celebration will close on Sunday March 14th at noon. That'll give me time to make a big production out of the whole hat-drawing thing. I'll have to find some drums, maybe some dancing girls and line up a parade for the big winner.
As for your part, well, you've just got to say hellow.
