It is especially fun and gratifying to offer local friends local opportunities to see my work on a gallery wall! Two such opportunities are coming up real soon.
January 25, 5-7 p.m. – The 6th Louisiana Biennial: National Juried Exhibition will open with a reception and juror’s talk in Room 103 of the F. Jay Taylor Visual Arts Center, Louisiana Tech University. The TVAC is at 1 Mayfield Ave.*
Peace in the Time of Pandemic has been in several national juried shows and was selected “Best Photo” in the habitat category by participants in Louisiana Master Naturalist Association’s 2021 Rendezvous. It is one of 56 works chosen for the 6th Biennial from 633 entries by juror Rebecca Hart. What an honor! I’m looking forward to seeing the show and hearing what she has to say about her selection process.
January 28, 5:30-7 p.m. – North Central Louisiana Arts Council’s annual “50@50” show opens at Creative Exchange, 112 W. Alabama Ave., Ruston. The title means just what it says: 50 small artworks (11×14 max. including frame) will be on sale for $50 each. If you purchase one, you can take it home with you that night.
This year as last, due to Covid, the pieces will also be offered for sale on the NCLAC website. The online show will go live Monday, January 24. If you purchase a piece online, you can still come to the one-night-only in-person show and take the piece home with you, or you will be able to make other arrangements to get it.
I will have three pieces in the show, and, at the risk of sounding a bit braggadocious, my work in this show has tended to sell out in years past. So… jump on it if you want one! And for my Monroe friends, a special offer: I’ll personally fetch it back from Ruston and deliver it to you. Out of town friends: These small pieces are relatively easy to ship, but you will need to pay for shipping.
BTW, the 50@50 show is a fundraiser for the North Central Louisiana Arts Council. They will take a commission. That’s okay. They do good work!
