Our Decatur Exhibit is 1 month away!
Bob and I are busily finalizing and framing our work for the Exhibit "Travel Art: Italy and Beyond" for the Decatur Area Arts Council in the Anne Lloyd Gallery at the Madden Center in downtown Decatur, Illinois. We're bringing about 50 works and among these are 6 full sheet watercolors I have focused on for about the past 7 months. The three paintings (30" x 22") and Bob's photographs shown here will be part of the exhibition. Bob has been printing many new images that are really powerful and exciting!
The Opening Reception will be Friday evening, September 2, 2011 from 5-7:30pm. Our work will be on display throughout the month of September. We'll take it all there, attend the Opening Reception and use the opportunity of being in the general area to visit our daughter Jessica in Milwaukee before heading home.
We'll return again towards the end of the month to pick up the work and I am scheduled to teach a one-day Watercolor Journaling Workshop at Rock Springs Nature Center, 9-4 on Saturday, October 1. If you are in the area and wish to register for this workshop, call 217-423-3189. I'm excited about meeting some new people and journaling in this new area!
A few of the works in the exhibit:
Bob's "Castello Aragonese, Ischia"
My "Sunrise, Amalfi Coast"
Bob's "Mt. Etna"
My "Laundry Day, Puglia" (we'll also be showing Bob's version of this same image!)
