Exhibit News...Horizontal Grandeur

Every summer brings the annual "Horizontal Grandeur" exhibit at the Stevens County Historical Society & Museum in Morris, MN.  This annual exhibit is inspired by an essay written by Minnesota poet/writer Bill Holm about the prairie, and only artists who live in states with prairies are eligible to submit for unusual but fun requirement that caught my eyes a couple years ago because it didn't seem to include anyone from my home state -- Washington.  We have beautiful prairies in the eastern half of this state, separated from the rocky, wet, western side by a jagged line of dramatic, snow-covered volcanic mountains.  So I began entering to "represent," and here are the two pieces that are off to Minnesota this year to appear in this wonderful, quirky exhibit.
