The Homegrown Art Show is catching on fire!
Hah, not really, but it is getting a lot of attention, which is kind of like fire.
An idea that is so contagious, spreading like wild fire, can burn down walls between people, walls created by class, race, gender, age, interest, etc. This art show isn’t a world-changer or anything, but it’s changed my world, that’s for sure.
To see and hear so many people wanting to get the word out about this event has literally made me beam with joy almost to the point of not being able to control it. I mean, every now and then, my toes start dancing, my fingers start tapping, and my whole body just wants to jump and down because this means that something that a few “kids” put together is really paying off… for everyone.
I wanted to share a couple newspaper/magazine articles that have been published about this art show just because I’m so proud of it all.

Also, Mattie and I will be featured as guests on KOPN 89.5FM tonight at 7pm to talk in the Women’s Issues segment about the art show as well as issues related to being a female artist.
