2010 Denver Plein Air Opening and Own an Original

Tuesday, November 9 starting at 5-8 p.m. will be the artists reception at the main Denver Public Library, downtown. I have only one painting in this year. To view the show online, It is a fun event to attend; and the show is up through December. The painting I submitted that was accepted is the side building of the Curious Theater.

Thursday, November 18, 5:30-7 p.m. is the City of Littleton Fine Arts Own an Original Art Exhibition reception. This opening and show is held at the Littleton Museum of Fine Arts Gallery, 6028 S. Gallup St, Littleton 80120. I just found out today that the 3 pieces I submitted were accepted. This show is up thru January 16, 2011, so there is time if you are in the area to check it out. For those of you out of town or not interested in going to the museum, the paintings are Lavendar Hydrangeas, 24x30; Reading@theMetropolis, 20x16; and Smokin', 16x20. I have had a number of comments lately that I really need to focus on painting people, so that got me to submit the two figure paintings to this exhibit.

The juxtaposition of the 2 titles of these exhibitions in one blog was a revelation. The uninitiated might have no idea what plein air refers to, but own an original is straight to the point. Most people don't realize that for the price of overpriced print (sold at "art auctions, i.e. on cruise ships), you can own a piece created by an artist who has put his heart and soul into its creation. Kudos on your acceptance into both!
