Spring Obsession


IronstoneI’m pleased to say I was accepted to the Spring Obsession show at Ironstone Vineyards in Murphys, California in early March. The much anticipated annual, 2-day event featured Artist Reception and Wine Tasting GALA, live music, cooking demonstrations and of course, the spring art show which displayed work from artists nationwide. Ironstone’s grounds offer visitors a breathtaking array of blooming flowers creating an apt backdrop for the vibrant and eclectic artwork. The exhibition opens Saturday March 1, 2014 and runs through May 11, 2014.
