Did I mention my portrait of Mayor Cindy Siegel of Bellaire was accepted into the Richeson School of Art & Gallery Figure/Portrait 2009 Exhibition book? I’m very anxious to receive my copy. I haven’t heard from them but I hope it arrives soon.
I curated an exhibition and competition for a water theme art component to a sustainability conference held in October at Rice University. The people’s choice award winners represented representational, expressive and abstract styles. All sixteen selected artists who participated entered artwork to represent how water can have human impact. The show lasted through the month of October.
The Elder Street Gallery had a Connections exhibition featuring postcard art from all over the world. I entered to pieces inspired by my Tuscan series of acrylic works.
The Angel Store is a show that runs through the holidays to raise awareness and funds for Justice for Children. For this show I painted “El Querubin” based on a photo I had of one of my nieces.
The first anniversary at my studio was jointly celebrated with our second art crawl with 12 artists in my building opening up their studios to feature their most current work. This started out slowly, until shortly after the football game was over and the usual crowds unleashed. I’ll be posting some photos of my studio soon.
