We thank those who submitted entries for our Marquee Mirror Virtual Talent Show. Unfortunately, we did not have enough entries to warrant a contest. We are sure you will agree, though, that the entries we received show a lot of talent.

If you would like to see them in person, we plan on having them on display at Gallery 1001 on their First Friday event on April 1, 5-7pm.

About "Afternoon Dancing Llama"

“Afternoon Dancing Llama” features a mixture of fun colors painted on the llama and beads and hand-made pom-poms sewn onto a canvas. Dots and stars surround the llama making the afternoon sky. The llama is loving this day!
