It has shaped up to be a very busy exhibition season this spring for Conquergood Creative. We are are out exhibiting automata and encouraging others to get started in the ways of automata.
Things kicked off with a very busy exhibition at the Ontario Science Centre as part of their Tech Art Fair, February 18th, 19th, and 20th. With the extra help of a few family members we were able to entertain some of the estimated 1500 visitors that weekend. Next we will be at a couple of carving competition shows and ultimately end up at the automation convention in New Jersey.
