We’re thrilled to announce that Michael has been accepted into the prestigious Western Art Showcase at the Calgary Stampede. The Western Showcase is a major stopping point during the Calgary Stampede, and is located in the BMO Center on the grounds. Over 2000 artists apply each year and only 60 are selected by an expert jury to partake in the show. Michael has been offered a full-time artists’ studio for the length of the Calgary Stampede, Summer 2011. If you’re down on the Stampede Grounds please stop by and say Hi, and check out Michael’s exciting new statues.
