This was accepted into “Talent Plus”, an exhibition at Laguna Beach gallery Las Laguna Art Gallery .  Yes!!!

Per the gallery that organized the artist exhibition:  The word talent originally was meant to represent a unit of mass. It was used in ancient times in Greece, the Roman Empire, and the Middle East to weigh precious metals like gold and silver. The word is often tied to the Bible parable, Matthew 25:14-30, that explains that one should not hide a God given endowment, and that even one talent is a large sum.

The word talent is now used to describe ones natural and abilities, aptitudes, and inclinations to do something extremely well.

For this exhibition; local, national, and international artists submitted work for this open theme show. The results are inspiring and remarkable.

The event will be part of Laguna Beach ArtWalk on Thursday November 5th from 6:30 pm to 10pm for the Artist Reception (I won’t be able to be there – I’ll be at Art San Diego Contemporary’s VIP night!!! but I do plan on going to the gallery late on Saturday.) The exhibition runs from November 5th to November 30.

Perfect place for this piece!
