Michiana Annual Art Competition

At long last, it's summer -- the season of outdoor art fairs and exhibitions. Last night I attended the opening reception for the Michiana Annual Arts Competition, which draws scores of creative entries from southwest Michigan and northern Indiana.

Two of my own mixed-media pieces -- "Fairy Tale" and "The Importance of Ancestors" -- were selected for the exhibition. Since this is my first time entering a show on Michigan's west coast, I was also honored to learn that "Fairy Tale" won an Honorable Mention award in the juried competition. Both pieces illustrate my passion for telling stories with discarded vintage treasures and natural found objects.


The Michiana Annual Art Competition runs from June 20 through August 2 at the Box Factory for the Arts in St. Joseph.
