I’ve finally settled in to write a little post today. I’ve been thinking about all of the upcoming events I have scheduled and feel that I should list them early so you can forward this to friends and relations to join in the fun.
- Still Life Watercolor Workshop at The Dalles Art Center, Saturday and Sunday May 16th and 17th from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. This workshop will be open to any level of watercolor students (including beginnners). I hope to set up some interesting still lifes for all of you. The cost is $50 per day. I’m hoping to see lots of old and new students at this event. Also, remember we’re looking for donations for art books, supplies, tapes, DVD’s and an electric pencil sharpener for the Jerry Fenter Library! For more information and sign up please contact The Dalles Art Center in The Dalles, Oregon. Telephone 541-296-4759. Sign up NOW.
- Maryhill Arts Festival on the grounds of the Maryhill Museum, Saturday and Sunday August 15th and 16th. 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday and 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday. This is a great show with lots of food, wine and especially art in addition to the beautiful landscapes surrounding the museum. For more information contact www.maryhillmuseum.com. (Ron Fenter, sculptor, will also be there.)
- King’s Mountain Art Fair on Labor Day weekend, September 5th, 6th and 7th, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm located in Woodside, California. This is a beautiful fair nestled in the Redwood Forest and just 1 mile from Neil Young’s home. (He was one of the originators of this fair many years ago.) Top artists abound and it’s a nice addition to a weekend in SanFrancisco. For information contact www.kingsmountainartfair.org.
- Combined show with sculptor Sandy Visse at the Attic Gallery in December 2009. The opening will be December 3rd at the Gallery. Our theme is The Dark Side…but the show is still unnamed. Sandy and I can assure you that the experience will be “hilariously disturbing” and there may be costumes. Don’t be afraid you won’t want to miss this.
More exciting and outrageous events will be added as they come up.
I’d like for all of you to see one of my favorite watercolors I’ve done in the past year. It’s title is “Ven You Iss Gone” and is a brightly colored interpretation of my statement on the predicament of the polar bear. (Notice the orange life preserver in the collage). The image is 22″ x 30″. To buy this piece and see others similar to it please contact the Attic Gallery at www.atticgallery.com. Diana is great to work with and her gallery is one of the oldest and most creative in Portland.
It looks like it’s ready to rain again so I’m off to walk my dog Cody before the deluge. Oh, I have another movie to suggest to you. It’s “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”. Warning: You MUST have an odd and warped sense of humor to enjoy this movie. I laughed until I cried.
