My lucky streak has continued - I have been juried into Tamarack! My first group show will be from January 31st - March 27th, 2010 at the David L. Dickirson Gallery, where I will have about 5 paintings on display. A few days ago I also got my notice of acceptance to Allied Artists of West Virginia, so I will begin exhibiting with this group, too.

I have had a decent but not-so-productive painting weekend, the weather was fantastic - drove up to Cooper's Rock on Saturday where it was the perfect temperature for a day of work. It was unusually warm for April in WV, but the higher elevation in the hills of Bruceton Mills is great when it gets too hot. Too bad I didn't have a painting turn out - I will be working more throughout the week and will post my most successful newest soon.

Good News!

Lately, I have come into a streak of good luck! I had a pre-screening session with a representative from Tamarack (a facility that showcases handcrafts, fine art and regional cuisine) and I have been accepted for their current jury session tomorrow. Keeping my fingers crossed that I get accepted, I would love to have a semi-permanent space for exhibition. Plus, Tamarack gets masses of tourists that come through their galleries - and what artist doesn't like the idea of masses of viewers?

Allied Artists of WV had their jury session for new members on Saturday in Charleston, WV. Derek Overfield and I traveled down and submitted our work - we will know the results in a couple weeks. You can find out about AAWV here - > Also, two awards came my way from two separate competitions I recently entered Images of the Mon and Exhibit 60. Thanks to jurors Barbara Beer and Phil Salvato and congrats to everyone accepted into the shows as well as the other award winners.

April has been good to me!

Exhibit 60

Right now, two of my pieces are on display at the MAA Gallery in Morgantown, WV. They have been juried into the 51st Annual Juried Art Exhibit titled Exhibit 60. The show runs from April 3rd until June 3rd and the Reception and Awards ceremony is Sunday April 19th from 2 - 4pm. I'd like to thank juror/painter Phil Salvato for his kind words at last Thursday's crit! It's much appreciated.

The Women of WV Art Expo went really well - a lot of people stopped by to view and discuss with the participating artists. Thanks to all who visited my booth and asked questions! I had a great time, as always.

Also, I thought I'd include a new painting - this is March 27 - a small 7 x6" I completed at Prickett's Creek.
