This spring has brought a frantic pace to my work days!
The jury for the 2017 Governor's Art Show honored me by accepting my work. The show opens up on April 28th. Mark Bailey, also showing work and who has received awards at the Governor's Art Show in the past, was selected as the juror for the National Greeley Art Exhibition. As a board member for the NGAE, I have enjoyed working with Mark. I chair the scholarship committee for this organization. The NGAE show also opens on April 28th! So after I award the NGAE scholarship choices and Mark awards the ribbons for the art show, we will make our way to the Governor's Art Show in Loveland.
The following two days, I will help my co-curators hang the 30th Garden Show at the Madison and Main Gallery (the coop gallery in downtown Greeley). That show opens on May 5 and will feature work by 11 of my advanced students from Aims Community College.
But wait, spring isn't over yet! On May 12 and 13, the Columbine Gallery in Loveland will host a "plein air" painting event. The works will be hung wet on a "clothes line" and sold directly to visitors! I will be painting in the garden both of those days. www.columbinegallery.com
On the following Saturday, May 20, the Governor's Art Show will have its annual Plein Air Event. These paintings will be auctioned off later that day at 3:30PM at the Rialto Theater at 222 E. 4th Street, Loveland. I will also be painting in that event. www.governorsartshow.org
Along with all of these activities, I am still working on the pieces for the Principled Art Show due to hang in December 2017 at the Union Colony Civic Center in downtown Greeley.
Hope you will check out these events!
