40th Quadstate Round-Up

We had the opportunity to travel to Ohio for SOFA's 40th Quadstate Round-Up.

Here are some pictures to capture a snapshot of the event. 

We primarily watched Joe Bonifas (contemporary) and Michael Bendele (repousse) and were happy to return home with some knowledge and inspiration along with a couple of great books!
