Way to push a deadline! Entering Winter Art Show today.


Nothing like waiting until the last minute! 

Just wired up "Aspen Stand" and getting ready to drive to The Matthews in Spearfish.  Entering this painting and "The Last Stand" into the 34th Winter Art Show.  Wish me luck because as a staff member of The Matthews, I have been helping with the artist registration these last three days.  Some of the art is amazing! 

Show opens on Wednesday, March 20 upstairs in the Opera House Theatre and lasts until Saturday, March 23.  Free to the public.  Come in and vote on the piece of art you think deserves the People's Choice Award!

Up next -- Winter Art Show

 View 1: Some of the Professional Category...My "Autumn Path" is there.  Can you find it?

View 2: Some of the Amateur Category
 
View 3: Some of the 3D work from both categories.

Well Saturday certainly was a busy one.  It started off with a women's networking lunch and program at the Seven Grill Restaurant in Spearfish, SD.  Soon after, I went to the Spearfish Arts Center, where I have pieces on display, to help get the 2012 Winter Art Show hung.  Let's see, I got there just before 2 p.m. thinking a few hours would be the most it would take to get this puppy up.  Ahhhh....that was a bit optimistic.  We got the last nail pounded in around 8:15 p.m.  

So, if you're in the Black Hills area next week, stop by.  It's free too!  The show itself is hung in the theatre of the Matthews Opera House (right next to the arts center).  Here is the schedule:
  • Thursday, February 23, OPEN for public viewing 12 pm to 7pm
  • Thursday, February 23rd AWARDS ceremony at 6:00 PM.
  •  Friday & Saturday, Feb. 24-25, OPEN for public viewing 12 pm to 6 pm
Up next, it is our busiest week with our biggest group coming in at The Lodge of Deadwood.  We'll be working some very long days next weekend.  After that, I will be back at the old easel!
