On Monday I mentioned hanging an art exhibit and I thought I should share a bit more about it today.
I've had my paintings exhibited in art shows before. Two years in a row I had paintings at the National Heirloom Expo (I wrote about that here and here) and last year at the Philadelphia Flower Show (I wrote about that here). I didn't go to any of those shows and didn't get to see my art on display. In each case I only had one painting among many by other artists.
I haven't really pursued exhibiting my art, for a number of reasons, but in February when the beautiful new library opened in town with a gallery wall for art display a little spark of an idea was lit. I noticed a call for art in the newspaper in March and finally got organized to submit in April. I was accepted as the artist for the month of June.
The exhibit features seven of my paintings.
I chose pieces of a variety of subjects and in a variety of sizes to give a good overview of my art as a whole.
It's exciting and a little strange to see my art hanging here in the library.
Going to be in Southwest Wisconsin during the month of June? Our little town of Viroqua is a lovely spot to stop. The McIntosh Memorial Library is around the corner off Main Street at 205 S. Rock Ave.
