INTERNATIONAL GUILD OF REALISM
11th ANNUAL JURIED EXHIBITION
1261 Delaware, Denver Colorado
August 26 - September 17, 2017
Opening Reception Friday, August 26, 6:00 - 9:00pm
The Guild writes: "Gallery 1261 has established a reputation for providing the very best in contemporary realism and representational art. Nestled near the Denver Museum of Art and walking distance to many of the downtown landmarks, . . . Gallery 1261 has held numerous quality realism exhibitions through the years showcasing some of the top realists working today.”
This is a twice-juried show — membership in the Realism Guild is juried by a panel of members, and entries for the annual exhibition are juried by a non-member professional. This year’s juror is renowned artist Quang Ho, who also founded Gallery 1261.

CULTURE & AGRICULTURE
30th ANNUAL JURIED EXHIBITION
New Visions Gallery
1000 North Oak Avenue, Marshfield, Wisconsin
in the lobby of the Marshfield Clinic
June 27 - September 2, 2016
Reception Sunday, June 26, 3:00 - 5:00pm
I have two paintings in the exhibition, plus some boxed cards and limited-edition, signed giclee prints.
The gallery writes: "This juried exhibit, which remains one of the most popular and well-attended in the gallery's exhibit calendar each year, celebrates art which has in some way drawn inspiration from agriculture - modern or historical. It opens dialogues about agriculture, how it has impacted our society, and how it will continue to shape us in the future. This is an especially meaningful theme because the gallery is located in the heart of Wisconsin’s Dairyland; Marshfield Clinic is home to the National Farm Medicine Center.”
Shown: Two Ears of Corn, watercolor, 8 x 12”
INDIANA STATE FAIR PROFESSIONAL FINE ARTS
Indiana Arts Building, State Fairgrounds
1202 E 38th St, Indianapolis, IN
August 5 - August 21, 2016
I received two Honorable Mentions — one in Watercolors to Blue Skies, and one in Paintings (oil/acrylic) for A Snowy Day in Sheridan, which also SOLD! As of August 14, a second painting, a watercolor called called Sweet Bouquet, also sold.
Accepted by the judges this year were three watercolors, one graphite drawing, three pieces in the oil/acrylic room, and — something new for me — two small, framed computer art creations. (There’s nothing like drawing with your finger on an iPad to refresh your creative urges.) With more than 900,000 people attending the Fair annually, if only a small percentage of those people attend the art show, it’s hands down the largest show in the state (10% would equal 90,000 patrons). We’ve had a lot of fun at the Fair in the past 50 years!
