Through the years, I participated in a number of group shows, some of which were set up to promote specific issues, motifs and messaging. Engaging the artists' community in such activities is a win-win initiative, which benefits the issues promoted as much as the artists and the general cultural life, and in turn help local and imported tourism. Whenever my works won the accolades in such events, I felt honored and proud. Naturally, being awarded, focused the attention on my work, and in some instances that was instrumental in selling my works and secure my position in subsequent shows.
