Off to Wisconsin

“Attitude” is about to travel–to the 29th annual “Culture and Agriculture” show at the New Visions Gallery in Marshfield, Wisconsin. This is my third appearance at this annual show and the first appearance for one of my horse paintings. I previously showed paintings from my “Barns and Buildings” series:

An extra bonus with this Wisconsin show is that the gallery allows related items for their gift shop such as note cards and prints–and I just happen to have a few of those on hand!

  1. These are lovely. Is it a competition? If so good luck! 🙂

      Most of the juried shows I enter do give awards–usually cash–but this one does not. However, they do print a catalog which is available to all visitors, and they do make an active effort to sell the art. They also have a binder on display which can include artist’s information such as a bio, artist statement, and exhibition history. I like that because I think art is sold more often when the potential buyer can relate to the artist in some way. Plus there’s the opportunity to have related small (“affordable”!) items in the gift shop.

      Thanks, “Cuz”! I’ll never be as good as Perry–I have little of his great ability to paint from life–but every time I look at that gorgeous California desert scene that I have I am reminded of what it is to be a master of your genre.
