TBAI 2014 –Part 2

Today I have some more photos from TBAI. There were several fun activities on Friday but one of the big events was the opening of the one-of-a-kind artist gallery and voting for the People’s Choice Award. I took photos of each gallery piece (at least I hope I didn’t miss any of them!) and wanted to show you the amazing work on display and for sale. While I tried to capture these in the best light available, photos don’t do justice to them. There’s quite a lot of work to show so, I am going to post half of the photos today and the other half in my next post. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Kay,

      I'm glad you enjoy it! I would too if I hadn't been there myself. It gives you a little peek at what awesome things bear artists can come up with and create!


  2. Oh dear, there were so many good pieces there that a fight has broken out over which was the best!

    1. Jack, Boo & The Clan,

      You guys are going to have to wait to fight - there's more to come!


  3. Thank you so much Ginger for taking the time over the last few days to let us see all the wondrous bears at the show! I would have swooned within the few minutes - pure bear overload! :D Congratulations on your award - bravo! Ani in Wilmington
