Next Art Show is "Wit and Whimsy of Contemporary Art"

My next project I am currently working on is an art Show at the JCC in Austin Texas July 6-August 17th. This is the Jewish Community Center on Hart Lane off of Far West. I will be showing in their gallery with the fabulous folk artist Terrell Powell. We each will get to display 20 or so pieces. I feel honored to be in Terry's company and look forward to the opportunity. I will add photos of pieces soon for a sneak preview of that show. Once hanging I will begin work on my show with Ziya Neema at Hyde Park Bar and Grill on Duval St. Austin Texas. This show will hang Sept Labor Day weekend for 5 weeks. Why am a blogging when I should be painting ?

Spring Show was Amazing !

Last weekend I hosted a Spring Art Show & Gift Sale on my backyard patio, deck and courtyard. 6 very talented artists packed with colorful works and beautifully displayed all day. It was a busy stroll of friends, family, neighbors and collectors stopping by to pay homage to their favorite artists. My family works for weeks to get our yard ready for the event and I could not do it without their efforts and patience. Ziya's enormous hand painted sails hung from the trees, the deck and brought the event to a higher level of glory. It was fun showing with her after all these years of having our work hang together in the Caribbean galleries. Donna brought her beautiful Saints, Virgins, retablos, mosaic crosses and Dallas doggie treats to sell. Rowena brought her hand knitted recycled purses and her chair massage for our weary guests. Ginny Burnett knitted lightly weighted shawls and scarves. Beth "Our Lady of the Lunch" also brought her casseroles to tasted and sell, her silver jewelry and folk art from Mexico. Luis Abreux & Cuban Dog Studio was set up on our deck with his lovely girlfriend Julie and Cuban mama ! Thank you to all our friends that stopped by we had a great Spring Day under Ziya's sails !
