This has been a really strange day. The news today, of course, is enough to keep anyone from getting out of bed but I got myself up and got in a full day at the studio. When I got home, this, to my complete and utter surprise, was in the mail. Apparently, I was both a finalist and a winner in the 2017 North American Niche Awards that I had applied to over a year ago. The announcements were apparently made in early Spring, but I am just now finding out via the award and a congrats letter.
I am excited to be a winner but totally baffled as to why I am just now finding out. Oh well, not going to look a gift horse in the mouth and will say thank you Wendy Rosen for the honor! Great news on a not so good day.
Welcome to the blog! I am the artist and gallery owner, Diane Quarles. I will post day-to-day outcomes and events here so you can see what is going on in the studio this month.
