workshop at the S.A. Museum of Art

This is my paper plate mask version of Mike Villiquette's "Happy Minotaur" paper cut collage, exhibited recently in NYC. Villiquette is included in the current San Antonio Museum of Art "Psychedelic Art" exhibit, curated by David Rubin. I was invited to do a cut paper collage activity for Family Day on June 6th.

Here is the plaque beneath the beautiful award , designed by Lynn Ford, below. It was too small to see in the photo below, but I thought it would be helpful to see the detail.

Award from the S.A. Conservation Society

This is the Lynn Ford Craftsman award, presented on May 14th, 2010, by the S.A. Conservation Society, for my work in papel picado. this is the first time I can remember, an artist, working in an ephemeral art form, receiving such a reward. However, it is appropriate, that a non-profit, that makes its revenue (and preservation funding) from one of the most successful Fiesta events, would appreciate an art form that screams "CELEBRATION!". I am so honored to have this elegant plaque, designed by the legendary,Lynn Ford, metalsmith, at the Willow Way complex. He will always be an inspiration to me. Viva Lynn, and the S.A. Conservation Society. Thank you for this touching honor.
