Well, in my true fashion, it has been a snake's age since I have written here. That does not mean I haven't been creating things, however! Have been pretty busy since the middle of summer. I had a nice solo show at The Arbor Lodge coffee shop. A beautiful space that is always filled with lovely people. Sold four paintings and a print, all told, so that is always super cool.
I also had some photographs in the Siren Nation "Paint Your Art Out" show. It was a lovely show and I am always pleased to participate in Siren Nation Functions. Speaking of which....I am honored to be participating in the upcoming Siren Nation "Natural Wonders" show! The opening will be Thursday, November 6th at Albina Press (5012 SE Hawthorne) I have submitted two pieces for this show, and they will be in fabulous company, so come on and check them out!
Another Siren Nation event I am participating in is the yearly Art and Craft sale held at the Kennedy School (5736 NE 33rd in the gymnasium) on Sunday, November 2nd 10 am till 4pm. I am going to be selling some of my tree themed paintings this year as well as some of my handy notecards. Come on out and say hi!
I have a fun, spooky little painting hanging right now at the "Things That Go Bump In The Night" show at The People's Art Gallery (700 SW 5th Ave, third floor), as well as my "Lacerta Iridi" piece. The gallery is showcasing the super cool and rad poster art of Zoltron, plus works by 100 other artists. I was lucky enough to be one of the 100 invited to submit work. Go downtown to check it out and see all the creepy, spooky art. (Great halloween show!) Show hangs until November 9th.
Speaking of People's Art Gallery...I hope you will save the date for the Big 500. YES! You read that right...the Big 400 is now the Big 500 this year. I have my ten boards and once they are done, they will be hanging in the gallery for the biggest craziest show of the year!! The opening is December 13th 2pm till 9pm. It's total mayhem as people swarm the galleries (all the galleries on the third floor are used to hang this immense show) looking for a treasure from their favorite artists. All pieces are $40 cash and carry and part of the proceeds go to the Oregon Food Bank. Win-win!! Mark your calendars!!
Last, but totally not least...one of my fav galleries has issued yet another fun, challenging theme. Good;a gallery is having a Bill Murray themed show that opens on December 5th. I am very excited to be participating in this show and who the hell doesn't love Bill Murray?! I hope you can come on out for the opening and check it out.
Well, sorry to unload all that info on you at once, but that's what happens when I slack off the updating. I know I always promise to keep up, but let's keep things real here, right? ha! Thanks for reading and I hope I see your face at some of these cool events!! As always, if you see something on my site that catches your fancy, please feel free to contact me about getting it into your life! Ta!
