2010 December 1

There is nothing like the beginning.  My first class at Johnson & Wales was knife skills.  I will never dice a vegetable again…only brunoise.  I will never again cut matchstick size vegetables –only allumette.   This next call is from a burgeoning gallery and may give a few of you your first shot at metal sculpture.  For others, you might discover the beginning of a career in junk art.  Seize your beginning…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Shaviq Gallery (Rapid City, SD) for Junk Metal Sculpture.  The entry fee is cheap, the commission is unusually low, and the show length is long.  You can’t ask for better circumstances for art sales.  Take a look…
