I’m delighted to let you know I recently received the First Place Award in the third annual ART in pARTnership III juried fine art exhibit and sale. This exhibit is sponsored by the Arizona Art Alliance, a state-wide group of nearly 20 of the most prestigious art groups in Arizona. Two of my recent works were juried into the show – “Spring Break” and “Cactus Wren in Cholla Blossoms”. The “Cactus Wren in Cholla Blossoms” painting was awarded the first place prize.
I’ve recently been experimenting with oil instead of my usual watercolor medium. The Cactus Wren painting was my first serious work in this new media, and I think I’ll be using oils more and more over the coming months.
The exhibit continues through October 26 at the Holland Gallery of Fine Art in north Scottsdale (34250 North 60th Street, Bldg. B, Scottsdale, AZ). I hope that many of you will take the time to visit this exhibit and enjoy a wide selection of the work of some of Arizona’s best artists.
