It has arrived – Shipping Season! With three shows during the month of November, in Tucson and St. George and Tucson again, I find myself sending my babies off to the real world. I pack them up tight, sew their phone numbers on their metaphorical collars, and let them go.
In November, I will be wishing I could be in four places at once, being incredibly honored by the invitations, but raising two boys during Halloween, Parent-Teacher Conferences, and Thanksgiving. Nevertheless, let me introduce to you the pieces that were chosen:
First, from Oct 13-Dec 3, the American Women Artists “Under a Vast Sky” exhibit is featured at the Tucson Desert Art Museum. My piece “Spring Debut” was chosen to be hung among these incredibly talented women artists, and I am deeply honored. I wish I could meet everyone, but I will have to wait until their show at the Steamboat Art Museum next year.
If you are interested in purchasing this piece, please contact Robin Knowlton at rknowlton@
The second show, which we hope to attend, is the Oil Painters of America Western Regional Exhibit at Illume Gallery in St. George UT. This show runs Nov 10-Dec 9, 2017, and it features a wide variety of representational oil painters. This is a difficult show to get into, and I am very excited to say this is my second OPA Western Regional show in a row. I am especially happy that they chose one of my favorite pieces, “Late Winter Solace.” We are making a trip out of it, camping in St. George as a family, and enjoying Zion, I hope. More to come on that. Again, you can purchase this painting by contacting Jane at email@example.com.
The final hoorah for November is the Mountain Oyster Club in Tucson, AZ. This show opens on November 18, and I am sorry to miss this one! I have been in this MOC show once before, and the photos from the Artists and Patron night make it look like a ton of fun. I appreciate so much the invitation, and one day we will make it down there. In the meantime, “Warmth of Winter” will have to go it alone. Contact Alisha Taylor firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in this piece.
I hope you enjoyed your virtual art show. Thanks for joining me on the adventure!
