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 🙂

PRESS COVERAGE:

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’m very excited to announce that my painting was selected as the image for the Official Roseville Centennial Poster.  For those of you that live in the area and would like to purchase one, they are available at the Blue Line Gallery for $15.00. The poster size is 18 x 24 inches.  A copy of this poster can also be found at the Roseville Library Archives.

Here’s my latest painting: Rosevillle

I created it for the Celebrating Roseville: A Centennial Exhibit at the Blue Line Gallery in Roseville CA. The city is celebrating its one hundredth year and the Blue Line Gallery is celebrating with the city 🙂

The painting is large (for me anyway), it’s 2′ x 3′ and very detailed. I had one month to complete it and I worked an incredible amount of hours on it. But alas it is complete!

The exhibit opens Saturday night with live music by Gypsy Standard Time and snacks from Kelli’s cookies. Should be fun!

Here is the exhibit postcard. For more about the exhibit, click here.

The Roadside Scholar is a wonderful blog I’ve been reading regularly for some time now.  It’s written by Gigi, a photographer and fellow etsian.  She writes about art and designs she comes across on etsy and elsewhere on the internet. It’s a great resource for discovering some really interesting artwork, designs, etc.  She recently purchased one of my prints and wrote a blog post about me.  So please check it out!

In other news: The Blue Line Gallery opened it’s long awaited Gift Shop.  I have some of my small original painting and prints on consignment there.  I was pleased to find out that I sold 2 items (1 painting and 1 print) on the very first day! 🙂

I just framed one of my 50 miniature paintings titled “Sand Castle”. The Blue Line Gallery in Roseville is having a summer themed exhibit called “Sea, Sand and Sun” starting this Saturday. My painting will be part of the exhibit.

Please excuse the poor photo (lighting conditions were terrible). Anyway – you get the idea – white frame with the image floating on top of the mat. I think it goes really well with the image.
