I don’t toot my horn too often, but I need to record this one so I can recall it on days when I feel like everything’s going wrong.

I was awarded the Curator’s Award at the March Melee Art Bash at Del Ray Artisans, Alexandria VA.  I couldn’t be there for the opening reception on March but Sara Trettin sent me these nice pictures:

About Lillian-Trettin

I grew up in the Appalachian "Bible Belt" of East Tennessee in the southern United States, listening to banjo music and gospel lyrics as well as the Beatles. As a kid, I was curious about religious rituals like speaking in tongues and snake handling but resistant to the fundamentalist thinking they involved. Flannery O'Connor's tales of religious fanatics, con men, bigots, and the spiritually bereft or ambivalent resonate for me. Despite having traveled widely and lived in other places, I am (as so many Southerners claim to be) permanently "South haunted." I returned to making art full time in 2011, following a career as a teacher, researcher, and consultant and after raising two sons. I’m convinced the delay enriched rather than impeded my growth as an artist.

    Congratulations! I am absolutely loving your latest work. The Poe paper cut is one of my favorites. I can’t wait to see what else you do in the future.
