If you get to the Puyallup Fair this year, be sure to check out the fabulous art at the Art Show in the Pavilion near the Gold Gate. I have five paintings there, four of which (I am embarrassed to say) won awards! The awards ceremony will be held on Thursday 9 September from 6pm to 8pm. Also, on Thursday 23 September I will be demonstrating pastels at the Art Show. Stop by and say hi!
Hi Everybody! I will be at the Port Orchard Artwalk tomorrow, Friday August 20th, rain or shine (pray for shine!) I am located at Haute Salon right next to Mallory’s frame shop on Bay Street. If it’s icky out, I will be painting inside. If it’s nice, I will be out on the sidewalk. Also, directly across the street is a new restaurant called Bay Street Bistro. Check them out because they have some of my art work on their walls (and great food besides!) See you there!
While beautiful samples of our artist's work hung in the lobby, the public was invited to a catered reception Saturday evening to learn about the studio tour coming soon in September. The tour hopes to make this an annual event.
The artists were quite lucky earlier this month to have their work showing for the Washington Chef's special event at the facility as well. We want to thank our special hostesses at the home for all the work they have been doing to help local artists. The facility will be having an art event in January again next year and is looking for artists to be a part of it.
Hello everyone! Please go to www.ArtKudos.com and see my oil painting, Fallen Log, which was juried into their 2010 International Online Exhibition! This same painting also got Honorable Mention in the Oils category last year at the Western Washington State Fair.
The deadline is rapidly approaching for Peninsula Art League's 8th Annual Open Juried Art Exhibition! The show will be held at the Gig Harbor Civic Center, and will be juried by Ron Ranson, an artist, teacher, and author who recently moved from England to Portland, OR. Click here for the prospectus. We hope to see your work at the exhibition!
My painting "Sweet" was accepted into the 38th Annual Open Juried Exhibition of the Pastel Society of America. My painting was one of 160 chosen out of 1269 entries. It was my first time entering the competition and I am thrilled to have been among those accepted for the exhibition!
PAL's summer show was held at Key Bank during the Art Festival. I have pictures of the winners, but I have to apologize because they aren't good pictures. Just know that the artwork was much better in person!
Nestled on the western shores of Washington's Puget Sound, the Gig Harbor Peninsula has long been a magnet for artists. For nearly three decades the Peninsula Art League has supported and nurtured the area's diverse artistic community. This blog was created to showcase the works and events of the Peninsula Art League members.
