Art Flow, Part 3

Well, that took awhile! How can I be so busy, given that I am supposedly retired?! However it happened, this is finally the third and last installment of my posts about my four pieces invited to Art Flow 2019 in Baton Rouge. (See Art Flow 1 and Art Flow 2 below. Often invitations to juried exhibits include a requirement that the pieces submitted have been completed in the preceeding two years. This particular call to submit did not, which made it possible for me to submit a piece I like very much but completed in 2012 when I was working…

Art Flow, Part 2

So… I just finished framing the 3rd and 4th images to be delivered tomorrow to Art Flow in Baton Rouge. I am particularly excited that “Take Flight” was invited to this show. I have been photographing construction sites for a long time, but it has seemed that no one else sees what I see in them. And what do I see? #HardHatArt #PerformanceArt I have the utmost regard for hard hats. I mean, look at that maze. That dense, intricate web of pieces. Regardless of how detailed the drawings, how they keep track of what they’re doing, how they know…

Art Flow, Part 1

More great news! Tuesday, March 12, I will drive to Baton Rouge with four artworks to install at three different locations as part of Forum 35 and the Arts Council of Baton Rouge’s major project, Art Flow 2019. Two of my four works invited into this major juried show will be installed at the offices of Visit Barton Rouge, 359 3rd St # A in downtown Baton Rouge. What a great location! The two works to be exhibited at Visit Baton Rouge both arise from my ongoing appreciation of architecture. One is an architectural treasure right here in Louisiana: the…

#50@$50

For the third year in a row, I will have three artworks hanging in North Central Louisiana Arts Council’s #50@$50 exhibit. This year, the exhibit will be at Ruston Artisans, 203 W. Alabama St., Ruston. This is a one night show! The artworks will be displayed Tuesday, February 6, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. The title of the show is descriptive: 50 small artworks will be for sale at $50 each.

Accepted!

The City of West Monroe, Louisiana, will present “Year of the River” beginning in January 2019. Artworks will be hung in the 2nd floor lobby for all who pass through a busy, busy place to see. I am thrilled to announce that three of my pieces will be part of this juried exhibit. Two of my entries were taken while I participated in the River Rat Challenge, a fundraising event on behalf of Horse Assisted Therapy services. The above shot was thus taken from a kayak near the end of a 6-mile run–a loooooong run for a novice like me….

Holiday Art Crawl

We have a new schedule this year! The North Central Louisiana Arts Council–NCLAC, pronounced “Nick-Lack”–has made some changes to its holiday arts celebration and fair in downtown Ruston, La. But first things first: I will be there, as I was last year. This year, I have been assigned to be one of several artists to make our work and wares available at Ruston Artisans, a beautiful new gallery at 203 W. Alabama St. in Ruston.re Last year the Holiday Art Crawl (formerly called the Holiday Arts Tour) was scheduled a Friday night and Saturday. This year we will be open…
