Three of my artworks in the "Swimming Upstream" series have been juried into Professional Art Quilters Associations exhibit ARTQUILTSwater. I do believe I am the only California artist chosen for this prestigious exhibit.
Below is "Swimming Upstream, cgre." 65h x 35w

I am a NICHE Award finalist this year. This is quite the honor for me as the NICHE Awards are all about excellent levels of design and fabulous craft. I was a NICHE Award winner in 2009 and coined the phrase "The NICHE Awards are like the Academy Awards for Artist". Being so highly recognized by the art publishing world is wonderful. You can learn more about how this series was created by listening to my interview with Lesley Riley. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/art-and-soul-radio/2012/11/20/bonnie-j-smith--having-an-art-attitude The interview is also avilable for download.
