2010 Cotton District Arts Festival Juried Art Competition

I had two pieces of art, "Organic Cosmic Lock" and "Ossiforestation", accepted in this years Cotton District Arts Festival Juried Art Competition held in Starkville, MS on 17 April 2010. After the judging was over, I somehow managed to win Best of Show with "Organic Cosmic Lock" and first place in the painting/drawing division with "Ossiforestation"! Both awards included nice cash prizes too, so I was more than happy. In a student art competition held in conjunction with the festival, my son won first place in the photography divsion and an honorable mention in the art division for 8th and 9th grades.

I had my drawing "Echinodermatter" included in a compilation art book entitled "Imagine the Imagination: New Visions of Surrealism" published by Negoist Publishing Co. based out of Poland. The book includes works by 100 surreal artists from around the world. This is a very nice book, full of weirdness! The book can be ordered at
