Wow! Spring absolutely flew by and now it’s summer. Not my favorite season. I don’t care for hot and humid, I’m more of a fall/winter person. Anyway, in between weeding garden spaces and trimming landscaping, I thought I’d better update you on what’s been happening this past spring.
I entered the Kokomo Art Association’s Spring Art Show in May. I entered Colors of Flight, and Woodland Nymph. Both are colored pencil drawings on textured black paper.
I am pleased to announce that Colors of Flight received a 2nd place rating in the Class II Professional division, and Woodland Nymph received Best of Show. These works were on display throughout the month of May at the Kokomo Art Center, Kokomo, IN.
You might remember from an earlier post, Woodland Nymph also received Best of Show at the Logansport Art Association (LAA) Spring Show in 2016. As a result of that win, I was invited to be the featured artist for the LAA Spring Show for 2017. As such, I had a small room off the main gallery space to display as many artworks as I wanted.
This showing in Logansport ran through most of the month of June.
About a week after the LAA show closed, I delivered nine pieces of work to Artworks Gallery in Kokomo. I delivered seven colored pencil works and two small oil pastels for display. As a result of receiving Best of Show at the Kokomo show in May I was invited by Artworks Gallery to be the featured artist for the month of July. I was also interviewed by a reporter for the Kokomo Perspective about the show. Nice to be able to get a little extra publicity for myself, the Kokomo Art Association and the gallery. I will update a link to that article once it becomes available.
I will be posting another work-in-progress post as soon as I get my photos in order. Until next time, make it a great day!
