Exhibition: The Shape of Things at Water Street Studios

Because of the pandemic, as is the case with everyone else who was slated to have an exhibition opening, the exhibition “The Shape of Things” with artist Diane Di Bernardino Sanborn at Water Street Studios, Batavia Illinois (suburb of Chicago) has been cancelled.

It was going to feature 10 new works on cut-out metal and acrylic. What’s most important is the health, safety and welfare of everyone. I wish all of you out there to stay healthy throughout this pandemic crisis. I’m grateful to the Ohio Arts Council for a grant that made a portion of the creation of the work possible. The Ohio Arts Council has been funding Artists with Disabilities (ADAP) for more than 22 years.
