Bizarre Art Contest and UFO Festival

I've mentioned before how Pine Bush, N.Y. is considered the UFO Capital and last year they held their first UFO Festival complete with parade. This year in conjunction with the festival the Pine Bush Area Arts Council had a call to artists for a 'Bizarre Art' show. My first thought was how much fun it would be to sculpt an alien, which I did, only to find out later that they couldn't take 3-D pieces. BUT... I also did a painting and honestly I can't remember if I called it 'Sighting' or 'Encounter' but either way... I won! I won the contest for Bizarre Art!
 Saturday, April 28th will be numerous lectures about sightings and abductions etc. along with the parade in the afternoon. Then Sunday there will be a cook-off and car show, then the reception and presentation for the Bizarre Art contest. I will take some pics and post them later on so you can all see what our local aliens look like. ;o)

Have a great weekend!

Best...  Canace
