Art-a-Whirl was great!

Many thanks to everyone who came by to say hi, looked and shopped the art!
I've been doing art-a-whirl for years and have shown a lot at the Thorp Building. They have great unique spaces and this is one that I was able to have my work in this year. It was an old powder coating oven.

This year I'm / Placement Gallery, is doing a huge show at the Thorp building. It's a special exhibition of artists I have shown in the last 10 years here in the Twin Cities. It's in a huge space, 12000 sq ft!, and there are 20 amazing artists in the show.
There will be a large "retail" space of artwork for sale which will include a fire sale of my own work. I'm slashing prices on a bunch of older work. Come buy, check out the show, and buy some of art!

Here is the information on the exhibition:
