Shows and Appearances

Art at The Garage

An exhibition of original artwork by many local artists of Northeast Arkansas. Free event during the Downtown Jonesboro Association’s Alive After Five! There were a lot of ASU students, current and former at the show. It was like a little reunion with fellow classmates I had not seen in years. Looking forward to more of these shows with the NEA Artist Collective.

 

10th Annual Delta Visual Art Show

It was definitely a rainy, Arkansas weekend, but boy did the Blue Bridge Center for the Delta Arts shine. It was the 10th Annual Delta Visual Art Show, a show that brought 210 visual artists, 25 authors and 10 musicians together in downtown Newport, Arkansas for a celebration of talent, skill and creativity. It was also great to see my artist friends in the area.

It was a great opportunity, and not too far of a drive. Already signed up for next year, and I can’t wait!

Special Event in Northwest Arkansas

2016 Main Street Awards

Last night was a big surprise for me. We helped host an awards ceremony for our local Main Street organization, of which I am VP. Awards were given to outstanding businesses and community members. I won local Volunteer of the Year for my town. Ben also won Local Hero award.

AND THEN…

Representatives from the Arkansas Main Street state program were there to give 2 awards to our community. I kind of guessed we had won for Best Online Presence. (I created our website: Downtown Paragould this year, and Gina, our director, does an amazing job with our social media.) But, to my incredible surprise, I also won the Volunteer of the Year from the state Main Street program!

MOCA Fundraise Bracelet

360 hand-painted bracelet Hand Painted Bracelet of Downtown Paragould

The new MOCA Arkansas had a unique fundraiser to benefit the contemporary art museum that will soon be located in Paragould, hopefully downtown. They asked local artists to paint wooden bracelets to be auctioned off at a private viewing of their collection. There was also a small contest for best bracelet.

I wanted to do something that would represent Paragould and my miniature paintings, of course the downtown landscape came to mind.

Seersucker and Linen was a unique event featuring big hats, croquet, Bourbon punch and the auction of our bracelets. I have to say a lot of work went into all the bracelets features. Jim Porterfield, an artist from Jonesboro’s bracelet was a particular standout.

I was honored to win the bracelet contest and $100 – thanks MOCA!

I said goodbye to Learn to Swim; I know it has a good home though.

BAAC National Juried Exhibition

Two of my miniature pieces were selected to be a part of the 2014 National Juried Exhibition in the grand opening of the NEW gallery space for the Batesville Area Arts Council Gallery. There were over 220 entries and only 28 selected; I was 2 of them.

As you can see from the photo above, mine are the smallest paintings in the show by far, but they definitely held their own. I was able to attend the artist reception and met a few brilliant Arkansas artists.
