Culver City Art Group… we did it again!

11 Comments

culver city art group

As some of you know, the Culver City Art Group held our 22nd Annual Holiday Art Show on November 11. Every year I convince myself this is my last year and every year I come back.

Once again our show was located at beautiful Playa Vista Centrepointe Club.

I’m going to toot my own horn here. It’s not easy. I’d rather talk about somebody else’s work than my own but I have to get over that!

The ribbon in the photo above was for Body of Work: Photography. I never expected this as I really admire the other photographers in our group. On the other hand, I’m not going to let myself down and say I didn’t deserve it!

These three photos above are, from left to right, 1. White Sands, New Mexico 2. Sleeping Lion, LA Zoo 3. Canoes for rent with the Casino in the background, Catalina Island.

The small photo in the center is of Pharoah, my cat who passed away in July. He was represented as I gave a memorial award in his honor.

I also won first prize in the Members’ Theme, “Let There Be Light.” I was on my way to take a photo and got distracted. But you can see it here at Photos I’m Showing at the Culver City Art Group Show.

And Marion Wong, who helps me (but does most of the work!) with the buffet table, gave me her memorial award for my “Sleeping Lion” photo which was a lovely surprise and much appreciated.

I presented my memorial award from Pharoah to Barbara Golbin (the pink ribbon next to her painting). Pharoah always loved flowers. Indoors or out, if there were flowers around, he would curl up next to them or stand and wait to have his portrait taken.  He is certainly missed.

Following are some random photos of the show:

Three of our exhibitors. Claudia Dose, Pamela Waddell, Barbara Golbin (our President).

I am an explorer and creative person. I've had many jobs, careers and interests... everything in life and the universe fascinates me. Born in Brighton, England, I've lived my entire adult life in Los Angeles, California. A few years ago I rediscovered photography which is a great excuse to get outside and look. I'm also in the process of re-writing some of my unpublished short stories and possibly a novel. .
