.... Well, that's kind of nice. I have been nominated for the City of Burlington's 2016 'Arts Person of the Year' award.
(Burlington is situated on the western end of Lake Ontario, one of the Great Lakes, nestled in the Province of Ontario, in the amazing country of Canada.)
I don't stand a chance - there's such other great talent on deck. Still, it is very flattering to be considered.
Equally as flattering is to be listed as a 'Famous Person' from Burlington.
In the main, an artist's life, no matter where they are situated, is one of DOING. The rest - payment, recognition, accolades - is pure gravy. I have been at it for quite some time now, so again, it IS gratifying to finally be 'seen' by the larger non-arts community.
Next up for me is a pinhole photography show in the Defacto Gallery, at the Mulberry Street Coffee House in Hamilton. It's going up April 10th and will be there until May 7th. Entitled: TIME WARP , I'll be posting more on that shortly ...
p.s. They are missing an art type in the above chart -
'naive-surreal-folk-abstractionism-by-canajun-M.L.Holton' - wink, wink.
|Colombine in the Back Field, by M.L.Holton|
ps. Woohoo - I WON! :)
