From there it was selected by the US Ambassador to Guatemala for the Art in Embassies program and traveled to Guatemala to the Embassy Residence for three years. In 2007 it was invited by Jerry Jackson to be in a show at Roanoke Island Festival Park called Pocosin Arts, Creative Diversions: Influences of Traditional NC Art and Craft.
