Xuewu Zheng told me about the Chinese artists residency program that he's been running for the last three years in the Hudson Valley. Xuewu complimented my ceramic mixed media sculpture that was featured in the Art Centro Northeast Ceramic Sculpture Exhibition; and invited me to work with him on a project that will merge American and Chinese artists. Xuewu Zheng is a noted and accomplished artist, arts activist and teacher. Seeing his work was an inspiration. I feel my artistic world expanding. I am overwhelmed with gratitude, as I am experiencing the joy of being in the right place. Centered. Blessed Days.
