I am honored to have had a print accepted to the Carmel (CA) Art & Film Festival. Through a juried process, 50 artists were selected for a month long exhibition at the Marjorie Evans Gallery at the Sunset Center in Carmel, California. Ten top winners from this group will be given a group show at the FARMANI Gallery, in New York City. One top winner will be featured in ARTWORKS Magazine.

Also accepted was my friend, John Kitts, owner of 422 Gallery in Phoenix. Congratulations, John!
