LGAA Fall Show 2012

It’s great to take part in the community art scene!  Sunday was one of those unbearably beautiful fall days of bright blue skies and amber-red leaves and I made it to the opening reception of the Los Gatos Art Association Fall 2012 Juried Show at the Addison- Penzak Jewish Community Center with platter full of torrone in hand. Juror John Agg, executive director of the Art Museum of Los Gatos welcomed the rowdy crowd with pronouncements on the fine quality of the art before the awards were announced – my award was that both Imprint and Last Stand had been included in the exhibition in the largest category of oil. I got to meet lots of new faces and see some really outstanding work!

Shlepping Art Around Town

The thing about showing your art is that you need to shlep it around a bit but I’m up for it!

Shell Grave is just too large for my Prius so instead of making other arrangements,  I decided to walk it down to the Los Gatos Museums Gallery where it will hang for the next three months. We both got a little air and exercise and I’m sure we made a pretty picture too. Hey, where is a photographer when you need one! There will be a holiday reception for this show Thursday, November 29 from 6-8:30 pm.

Imprint and Last Stand were handed off to a gauntlet of very capable  Los Gatos Art Association volunteers for installation in the  LGAA Fall 2012 Juried Members Show which will run until December 1 at the Addison-Penzak Jewish Community Center in Los Gatos.  There will be a reception Sunday, November 4 from 1-3 pm.

Imprint & Last Stand Juried Into Show

Today I was informed that my paintings Imprint and Last Stand were selected by John Agg, Executive Director of the Los Gatos Museum of Art for the Los Gatos Art Association Fall 2012 Members Juried Show! It’s always interesting to see which of the submitted pieces are chosen, and it’s nice to have both a figure and a landscape representing my work. The show will be held at the Jewish Community Center at 14855 Oka Road, Los Gatos, CA  from November 4 – December 2. An opening reception will be held Sunday November 4 from 1 – 4 pm.
