Opening Day Sopot Bulgaria Easter Exhibition
April 4th saw a gathering of dignitaries of the city of Sopot in Bulgaria for the opening of the 2016 Easter International Art Exchange including Evgeni Dimov, Georgi Getz, and Stefan Filchev. The opening was well attended and after the formal announcement we got to my favorite part, the interactive demonstrations. I always like watching the reactions of those who carve an eggshell for the very first time.
Also in attendance were a few friends from Velingrad, Bulgaria where my very first international event was held in 2011. I am honored that they would make the trip to attend.
And finally, a bit of a different story, while preparing for this event, I asked a number of two dimensional artists from Utah to create pieces to be shown in conjunction with my art. My gratitude goes to Lorie Cook, Kate Carrick and Marco Smouse for giving their time and talents for the successes we are sharing across the ocean.
