It is snowing outside! Classes at the college I teach at were canceled today! But this gives me a chance to get caught up on this blog!
January 2016: I was very focused on the "Elemental" art show which was hanging in the Tointon Gallery in the Greeley, Colorado's Union Colony Civic Center. The show, which was five artists re-examining the "elements of design," was well received! We tried to make the show interactive by having "QR" codes which allowed visitors to go to the show's website. After we took the show off the walls in February, we began to look for other venues for the show. We have tentative bookings in Parker and Loveland. Additionally, we have agreed to do the next exhibit in this series which will be about a new look at the "principles of design" called "PRINCIPLED." www.elemental2015.com
March 2016: There are quite a few art shows opening up this spring. Not having been accepted to the 2016 Governor's Art Show (bummer) I was accepted to the "Salon de Refuses" show in Loveland for the many people who were not accepted. The National Greeley Art Exhibit (NGAE) will celebrate its 50th Anniversary this year. They have invited past "featured artists" to submit two pieces to this show on the first weekend of May. As a past featured artist I have submitted the smaller works from the 2015 Governor's show, "Cactus and Flowers" and "Things Fall Apart." Both of these pieces can be seen on the "works" section of this site. I have stretched 3 large canvases that are ready for gesso. They will be a vertical triptych intended to replace the large "Cairn at Long's Chasm Lake" work that was sold from the "Elemental" show.
I'm not sure that visitors to this site know that works seen on this website are for sale. Contact Alyson Kinkade at the Columbine Gallery in Loveland, Colorado to inquire about purchases. www.columbinegallery.com
