Fine artist 

I am one of 50 artists invited to exhibit at the I Segnalati Rome art event and have been granted the opportunity to reserve space in the beautiful Velli Palace Exhibition Hall in Rome, Italy, for a video presentation of my sponsored artists. ​This contest is in honor of the Houston art community affected by Hurricane Harvey and the City of Santa Fe, Texas, specifically their fallen High School art students whose artistic voices were silenced too soon.
