The powers of good and evil have taken over the WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney® District, Disneyland® Resort. I was so excited to return to the gallery on Saturday (Dec 15) for the opening of this brand new show. It’s always a blast to be a part of the festivities. It’s inspiring, humbling and exciting to meet the many Disney fans who come out to these event. They are always fun to talk to and so enthusiastic about the artwork. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate their kind words and generosity. My sincere thanks to everyone who came out to the show to say hello. And a special shout-out to the great folks who purchased my Pinocchio (or “Pokeynose”) giclee.
The other great part of these gatherings is the chance to mingle with some fantastic artists. I’ve admired many of these talents for some time and it’s so great to stand beside them for this show. It’s always inspiring to hear their stories and experiences. So great to see Noah, Michelle Romo, Martin Hsu and Sean Chao once again. Thrilled that I finally got to meet Miss Mindy, Stephanie Buscema, Kristin Tercek, Ming Ong and Jackie Huang.
As always, the great folks at Disney made this a day to remember. Thanks to everyone who makes these events and this Gallery possible. That includes the wonderful staff at the gallery. Your endless energy and excitement for the art is such a big part of the WonderGround experience and I thank you for your efforts. Also, a shout-out to the Disneyland Ambassadors who are just so fun to talk to. I am honored to be a part of this gallery and so thankful for the experience.
There are some really fantastic pieces and merchandise in this new show. If you’re in the area, please stop by and check it out.
