Lottery

The Lottery for the Arts exhibit is up at the Blue Line Gallery throught the end of the week. I have two pieces in the exhibit (see photos below … number 20 and 23). The actual Lottery event will take place this Friday evening and tickets are still available here.  Ticket buyers will  go home with one of the 104 pieces in the exhibit.  Should be a fun evening 🙂

I was mentioned in an article about the Lottery for the Arts that appeared in the Press Tribune last Saturday. Click here for the article.

Tomorrow night there will be a special artist reception during which the winner of the “People’s Choice” will be announced.  Since I work at Roseville Arts I have some inside scoop… as of yesterday, one of my peices #20 was in second place.  YOU can help tip the scales — if you are living in the area — stop by the Blue Line Gallery and vote for #20! 🙂

20-20

I am participating in another group exhibit at the 20th Street Gallery called 20-20.  It’s modeled after the 50-50 show I participated in last year. This time it’s 20 pieces of art by each artist! I got my panels today… so I will be busy painting every day. I will post photos of my progress, so stay tuned . . .

Hey There! Just wanted to let you know about this really unique new event at the Blue Line Gallery.  It’s an exhibit and fundraising event called Lottery for the Arts!

The way it works is the organization asked artists to donate some art pieces which will be exhibited Sept 1-11 at the Blue Line Gallery. And they are selling lottery tickets (which are not cheap, but well worth the cost) for the Lottery “party”. On the evening of Sept 11, there will be a private event for ticket holders and their guests — they will enjoy food & wine while they wait for their names to be drawn.  Once their name is drawn, they will choose their piece of art. Every ticket holder will go home with an original art piece art valued between $175-$1200! So it’s a lottery where everyone is a winner!

Should be a great event! For more information and to see the artwork donated so far or to purchase your ticket, click here.

I will have 2 pieces in the exhibit. They are both intaglio pieces, created using etching or engraving and aquatint on a copper plate and hand printed on an etching press. If you buy a ticket, you may win one of these (they will be matted and framed, I’ll post photos soon):

“Jungle of Hair”, engraving and aquatint, 12″ x12″

“The Grand Oak”, etching and aquatint, 13.5″ x 12″

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! 🙂

Thanks to Diane Bell – a wonderful artist and person – I had the opportunity to print some of my old favorite etchings. She has a beautiful, spacious printmaking studio and a good-sized etching press. I spend about 5.5 hours in her studio today, printing and talking to her about printmaking techniques. She had some great tips and suggestions to share and I can’t wait to go back and print more.

So the popular “Monks” is now available in my shop once again and I will list the “Grand Oak” soon.

We also had an opening at the gallery for the Sea, Sand and Sun and Urban Art exhibits. After printing with Diane, I went down to say hello. It was a nice opening and my little painting sold already -so that is exciting. I know who purchased it – so thank you Bruce and Barbara! 🙂
