For several years we were lucky enough to live around the corner from the Springville Museum of Art. (This place will surprise you. It houses the largest public collection of twentieth-century Russian and Soviet art in the Western United States. Bet you didn’t see that coming.) Almost every Wednesday night, my small kids and I would walk over there, sometimes the youngest one on my shoulders, and see the latest art. They liked to stand on their toes and slide a couple of coins into the donation box, climb the spiral staircase, and watch the gyrations of the kinetic water sculpture.
That’s why I was especially excited to learn that a piece of mine has been accepted into the 2019 Spring Salon, one of my favorite exhibitions of the year. My work will be hanging alongside life-long masters I’ve admired for years. This is both astounding and disconcerting. I’m so honored to be included, and I’m looking forward to another chance to spread the word about the golden age of space exploration we have lived to see.
The show opens April 24! There will be a reception from 6 to 8 that night.
