Updates and musings
Happy Valentine's day one and all! I hope you have your sweetheart and if you don't that's ok, you'll get one! I have a couple of exhibition updates and jazz we should def talk about! First I was accepted into the exhibition "All That Glitters" in Washington state at Gallery one Visual art center! Heroes/Villains, Depends on Where You Stand, will be in exhibit until the end of March!
GALLERY ONE VISUAL ARTS CENTER announces their fourth national juried exhibition titled ALL THAT GLITTERS. In celebration of their 50th anniversary, entries of work of or about gold will be accepted from across the nation and juried by Keith Lewis and Tariqa Waters for inclusion in a month-long exhibition, March of 2018 in the beautifully restored Gallery One in downtown Ellensburg. Opportunities for lectures, workshops, and/or special events will be offered to select artists to accompany the exhibition. $1100 in awards will be distributed by the jurors and an exhibition catalog will be created. Gallery One houses four art galleries and this exhibit will be featured in the Main and the Mezzanine Gallery spaces.
