SDA member show

I had been told prior to my first SDA conference, that the Member Show would be a highlight of the artwork I would see while in Kansas City. As usual, my astute friend was right, it was beautiful with some amazingly innovative and, beautiful, artwork. All artwork was 18" x 18" as stipulated by the requirements. Here are a sampling of my favorites:
