My Three Hours of Fame!

Going on 15 years now, I have been an "art expert" on the televised annual PBS, KVIE channel 6, live art auction. Artists from all over the Northern California viewing area are judged into the auction every year and donate an art piece. During the three day televised event, each piece of art is on the air for about five minutes. I get my turn along with other art experts to talk about the individual art donations along side a celebrity auctioneer, whose job is to drum up the excitement to get viewers to call in their bids. This weekend, I put in a three hour stint working with three different auctioneers in three different hour time slots. Camera 3, ten seconds to live feed, your on!

I'm so glad you didn't wear your low cut top so you could be on stage with Kermit the Frog! And good for you, BTW, doing something positive for your community with your artwork and talent!

Take care,

Thanks Rhonda, Barbara, and G.L. It is always fun and exciting to potentially make a horses ass of yourself on live TV

Amber, go to the station's facebook and watch my interview with Huell if you haven't already seen it on my Facebook. Hope your art studies are going well!

Wish we could see this on our PBS station. You make it fun and would love to see that live.

Hi Ann B., I like to talk about art in ways that are educational and with a dash of humor. I do this on air and in my classroom.
