I will be attending to see how my piece fits in with all the other identities.  Here are some images via The Parliament:

Joaquin Calles Guzman - Performance Artist

Rachel Scott "Hidden Underneath"

Kayla Ackelson "The Conversation"

Carlie Sherry "Disguised Concern"

And this is mine "The Real Me"---one of my favorites and an image that has found it's way into several exhibits.

Jessica Lee, Artist
My good friend, Jessica, will be exhibiting along with other artists at the above Studio Gallery 234's Spring Group Exhibition.  She will also be the featured artist at the Blue Moon Restaurant, 361 W. Market St., York.  Jessica has been working overtime creating many new works which I'm anxious to see in the coming days.  More about the restaurant here.  

I know some of my followers are local and I look forward to bumping into you at some of the events.
