I have been pulling together promo materials for the next AWE Project (Artist Window Exhibit).Â Luckily someone else is going to take the first run at writing it up.Â But it took me several hours to pour through old emails and documents to get statistics.Â We have had a total of 41 artists and 32 stores take part in this project over the last year and a half.Â (No wonder I am tired coordinating it – grin!!)Â And we have several more stores who want to join in this Spring AWE – new ones.Â We have been hearing that stores have been hurt they haven’t been invited – pretty cool if you ask me!!Â Due to the holidays, participation is lower – 14 artists in 12 stores – but it will still look beautiful!! And this time we are including students from the local high school – so that is very exciting!

To me this looks like a flower deva on the left and an earth mother on the right.Â Â But calling the earth mother a deva seemed to make more sense.Â I think this one is cool.
In this AWE Project is a very powerful exhibit called the 100 Faces of War Experience. You can see the website here.Â This is “Portraits and Words of Americans who Served in Iraq and Afghanistan.”Â It is an ongoing project.Â You can see that these works have a lot of power.
