"Emerging Artists" Reception and other things

This Wednesday, July 1st is the reception for the juried Emerging Artists exhibit that I am so lucky to have been included in. There will be a slide jam and awards ceremony starting at 6:00 pm at the Cultural Center, which is located at 1900 Kanawha Boulevard East Charleston,WV 25305-0300. I doubt I will be able to make it there by 6, (wasn't able to take off of work, so now I will be driving down afterwards) but should be there by at least 7, assuming the 2 1/2 hour drive goes smoothly!

I am looking forward to hanging my solo show (Paths:Landscapes in Oil) at Gallery 62 West tonight - so a full day for me - work, then installation. I am going to put out a tentative reception date, Saturday July, 11th. I will keep everyone updated - it could change.

Also, a reminder that Monday, July 6th is the last day to have submissions to the Culture Center for the West Virginia Juried Exhibition!

Post-Arts on the River

I am happy to say that Arts on the River was very successful this year - lots of people came out to browse around, enjoying the art, wine, food, and music (plus the magician). Of course, this was my first year participating so I don't have previous years to compare to, but Saturday (which was also West Virginia's birthday) seemed especially busy. Thanks to everyone who came out and to those who signed up for my mailing list (if you aren't signed up, email your address to!

Along the Monongahela river, we have a trail great for biking and walking. I was set up beside it, so I could see everyone walking their dog(s). Or in one person's case, sort of biking with their dog (see pic below for one very lucky dog). . . it was a fun day.

Arts on the River...

...this weekend! I have several new paintings completed that have yet to be shown from late May/early June for the festival. The event will be happening Saturday, June 20 from 10-8 pm and Sunday, June 21 from noon to 6 pm. You can visit the AoTR website here for more info - I'm a bit nervous about the weather, it's calling for some scattered storms, but hopefully they will be few and far between. Of course I will have a tent up, so people are welcome to dash under if one comes through the way they have been lately - quickly!

I also was interviewed by Ms. Lindsey Fleming of the Dominion Post (thank you!) for an article about Arts on the River, so you can check that out online if you have a subscription here - Please stop by and have a look at all the art, plus don't forget about the music and wine!

New Painting

Here is one of my better, more recent paintings, May 30.

I've been working larger lately and it's been tougher than I expected to adjust. I bought a larger palette knife to accomodate the new scale. Usually, my works are 15 x13" - the new size is 24 x20", quite a jump for me! I had another painting of this size turn out for me over the weekend and I will put it up here as soon as I get it photographed. It would make a nice companion piece for this one and I'm excited to show them together for the newest show I will be having in July!
