5×7 Art Splurge at the Arthouse 2008

Artists' Preview

View some of the pictures I took at the opening in the thumbnail gallery below - some are shots of some of my favorite paintings from other artists (should any of these be your paintings, I'd love to hear from you and give proper attribution, and should you want a copy of my pic of your art, I'll be happy to send you one):

Arthouse 5×7 Show

This week's paintings are 2 5x7's that were donated to the Arthouse at the Jones Center. The Art Splurge and Exhibition begins on May 17th, with an opening from 7:30 - 10pm.

Artists Talk at Austin Metrohouse

We went to a really nice exhibit today in the modern architecture setting of Metrohouse, where they were showing the work of 3 local artists: Andrew Long, Steven Dubov and Roi James. Great venue in which all the work looked fabulous!

Blue Genie 2007

This was my booth at the Blue Genie Art Bazaar.  I love the way they organize this show.  You set your stuff up, and they man the show, take the sales, and sent you a check when the almost month-long show is over.  Al you really have to do is make sure your keep replenishing your work.

Artspoken 12×12 Opening

My little poppy paintings were hung in a great location in the front room, all together -- I loved how they looked there. There were a lot of nice paintings in the gallery -- some darling little happy flower paintings also in the front room -- in acrylic with wood-burning, if I remember right, lots of nicely done representational pieces -- landscapes and still lifes -- a few lovely abstracts, and some gorgeous photos here and there.

East Austin Studio Tour 2007

The tour this year was great. Even with a little rain on Saturday, over 110 people did make it to my little home studio for the tour. I believe most of the people who came had specifically picked out my work to come see. Considering there were about 210 artists and over 100 studios on the tour this year -- and that my studio in not located in the thick of East Austin -- I'm very happy that many people managed to make it here.

WAR-Artists Respond Opening

It was a great opening with huge crowds! Most of the comments on the show were about what a fabulous show it was - and what a great variety of art of such high quality there was. I got a lot of wonderful comments on my work, especially on the digitally-manipulated photo and encaustic piece "What Have We Become?"  A number of people told me how powerful they thought it was.

Upcoming Events

Three Shows

It's confirmed: I will be opening my home studio again this year for the East Austin Studio Tour, Nov. 17th and 18th, 10am - 5pm. Check my website or calendar for more specific details as the time approaches. Then, I will have some work available for purchase at the Blue Genie Art Bazaar, from December 6th through the 24th. Again, check the website or calendar for more details. But even before those, I found out today I will have some work in the show at the Dougherty Arts Center, titled "WAR-Artists Respond."
