I went on Sunday to jury the more than 50 pieces entered. The show is called "Mad About Red" and the interpretation of the color red was left up to the artists. It is an all media show, so I was choosing among fabric pieces, knitting, collage, photography, painting, drawing and mosaic among others.
I found it was very difficult to weed out what to include and what to "reject." I hate that word because as artists, we are so intertwined with our work it is sometimes hard if not accepted into a show not to take it personally.
Be that as it may, I had the job of curating the show and I had a wonderful time of it. There is a great variety of works and many very interesting interpretations of the theme.
WHYY Channel 12 is doing a piece on the show and interviewed me as a part of it. I think the show is "Delaware Tonight" though I may be wrong on the title. I do know that it will be aired on Friday, February 14, at 5:30 and 11:00 PM and again on Sunday at noon. It will also be on the website on Monday. I should be a big star after all those airings :0)
The NAA show is open to the public now and hosts a free February 14 second Friday reception from 6-8 PM.

It is frightening.
It is angry.
It is warm.
It is tactile.
