Sculptor Jack Howard Potter won Marco Island's ArtQuest 2008 People's Choice award over the weekend for his sculpture Sway at a fun party hosted by Orion Bank. Jack has an amazing ability to render the fluid human form in steel. Sway was loved by many and hated by some, but the conversations about her were never dull! Since Jack had to be in SW Florida today, so he'll move her to a gallery in Naples and return his "Warrior to New York. You can see all of the sculptures by clicking here, and clicking on ArtQuest 2008. I've chaired ArtQuest twice now, and love working with both the business community and the sculptors. I'll be sorry to see the sculptures go, but look forward to ARtQuest 2010. Sunday was spent at the Hogan Gallery in Golden Gate, and I'm showing you a photo of Guamo hanging my paintings. The Hogan Home & Gallery are for sale, and realtor Ann Willis brought together some wonderful artists to show off their work and enhance the gallery for an Open House. Ann is a Keller Williams realtor and cam be reached at 239-908-2153 if you're in the market for a unique property! I especially enjoyed meeting artist Merri Roderick, a fabulous sculptor and glass artist. I couldn't find a website to show you her lovely work, but you can take a class from her at the Bonita Art Center. I'll be teaching my workshop "Acrylics and the Florida Landscape next week, so Center for the Arts on Marco Island if you're interested.
