July is HOT!

Sugar Creek and Plein Air Easton this month!

"Sugar Creek Fine Art Festival" July 9 + 10, 2011 
Join us for this long running fine art fair in Normal, IL. I actually did this show in college in the 80's so that tells you it has been around a long time! I will be in booth B65 near the corner of Beaufort and Linden. Saturday 10am to 5pm and Sunday 11 am to 4pm.

"Plein Air Easton" July 14-24, 2011
I am again juried into the top plein air festival in the country! This is a huge event with demos, talks, exhibits and events all week. Plus, this year there are pre event paint outs in which I will be participating starting July 14th. Don't miss my demo at East End Gallery on Aurora in Easton on Sat. July 23 from 5:30-7:30 "From Plein Air to Studio: Capturing the Light." The gallery also has my work on exhibit in a three person show "From West Coast to East Coast" during the months of July and Aug.

Hoosier Salon Judge - Last month I served as a jury of submission and judge of awards for this year's Hoosier Salon in Indianapolis along with my colleagues Chuck Marshall and Lori Putnam. It was an honor and a pleasure to be a part of this event and organization that is over 80 years old. The varied and numerous works submitted are a testament to the power of the art spirit!

July's First Friday Open Studio Tour a Success -  Many of you know that I am a founding member and secretary for the Central Illinois Artists Organization (CIAO) to start a first Friday open studio event. Well, we have gotten a lot of press, elected officers, had new signage printed, and had a great turn out last week! We so appreciate the support of the community and the feedback you have given us to make this event as successful as possible. It will just keep getting better! The first Friday of every month from April to Nov. 5-9pm.

Honors - I was honored to win an "Jury's Top 50" at Greenhouse Gallery's "Salon International" this year for my painting "Girl meets Paint".
