Utah Best of State Gala 2016 a Grand Event
May 18, 2016 was a night to remember. I returned from Bulgaria for a short time, where I was offering new Easter themed art exhibitions and demonstrations. The reason that was strong enough to draw me across the ocean was the Utah Best of State Gala. Sitting at a table with family and friends in the Salt Place Conventions Center Grand Ballroom I heard my name called three different times. I am honored to announce that the judges awarded Brian Baity Studio medals for Handicrafts, Carving, and Sculpture. I am particularly thrilled for the Sculpture award because it has been given to some exceedingly strong contenders in the past. I can’t find the words to say how thrilled I am to be counted among them.
My greatest gratitude goes out to all the hard working individuals who made this event such a memorable experience. And congratulations to the winners, one and all, who were honored on this night.
