I'll be at the 3rd annual Spring Paint Out Artist Festival on Mother's Day May11th at the Veteran's Memorial park In Sierra Vista. The event features a pancake plus breakfast opening at 9am. Artists will be at Pavillion #3 with demonstrations of their art. Finished artwork will be on display and may be purchased. Also, throughout the park plein air artists will set up and paint the scenery. Their work will be displayed for sale in the wet tent at the pavillion. The public is invited to get into the spirit at the interaction table where folk can experiment with different art materials. One of the artists will be painting kid's portraits in pastel without charge. It's a great day of fun where the public can meet the artists at work.
I am preparing work for the annual judged open show by the Huachuca Art Association. Again it will be at the Sierra Vista Mall opening on May3 until May 17 when it will be transferred to the Association's gallery at 3818 Astro Rd. The awards ceremony and reception will be that night from 4-6pm with Holy Whitman again gracing us with her beautiful flute music. Refreshments will be catered by Carolyn Harkins.
I have enjoyed several sales and commissions as well as having a featured show at the Geronimo Gallery sponsored by the MWR department of Fort Huachuca. Much has been happening to keep me busy.
The next big event is Huachuca Art Association's Judged member's show which I chair. It will open at the Sierra Vista Mall on Nov. 2 until Nov. 15 when it will be moved to the Association's gallery at 3818 Astro Rd, Hereford, Az to be celebrated with a gala reception with music by flautist Holy Whitman, a catered banquet and an awards ceremony.
Next up I will be at the Holy Trinity Monastery with their art fair near St. David, Az. I've not even attended this fair and am looking forward to learning all about it and participating on the peaceful grounds of this unique monastery. The show is Nov 10-11.
You can now find my work in Tombstone as well. I was juried into the Tombstone Art Association and have work showing in their gallery on Allen and 2nd streets on a monthly basis
It is a busy next couple of months! In September I have work hung in a variety of venues. In addition to those noted below I will be represented in the Santa Cruz County Fair and the Cochise County Fair. New pieces will be at the Verano Fine Art Gallery 22 Main st. Bisbee, Az in time for their gala aniversary celebration. The Palominas Trading Post Diner at 10438 E.
