    Default So you think you're going to "swat" me do you ?

    There was an art show on the other side of the state that I did not know about and so missed it. A friend of mine mentioned it to me after the fact. Turns out that photos of the top ten works are online -- so at least I got to see them. This one was my favorite hands down though it only won 10th place. (Personally I thought it should have ranked higher.)

    Bill Secunda - ArtPrize Artist Profile - A radically open art contest, Grand Rapids Michigan.

    Having seen the pictures of the rest of the Top 10 -- all available for viewing if you click on the 2nd link -- I really wish I had gone. The craftsmanship on the 1st place winner (a mosaic) was absolutely exquisite and some of the other works were phenominal.

    Some fantastic pieces there Paul. I did find the Gerald Ford sculpture a bit spooky tho! And I agree that the mantis should have ranked higher.

    Fabulous. I have no argument with choice for the first prize. Frankly I wouldn't like to be a judge at such a show! Thanks Pavel for posting.
