Tall Grass gallery tour

Somehow I forgot to mention that I got two of my horse paintings accepted into one of my favorite galleries for a juried show. What’s unusual about this is that I normally submit landscapes for the juried shows but this one had as a theme “Getting There”–by any means imaginable. So of course horses fit right in and I submitted “Attitude” and “Partners”, two of my paintings of horses in harness, and they were accepted.

The reception for this interesting show at Tall Grass Arts Association in Park Forest, IL was this afternoon and I not only attended but also remembered to bring my camera. Here’s a quick tour:

Front of Tall Grass, which also offers lots of cool art classes.

As soon as I got in the front door I knew navigating might present a problem. But a good crowd is a very good thing.

"Partners", along with a couple of other horsey references that made it into the show.

Oh yes, lots more visitors.

Three "Three and One Wings" by Nathaniel Foley, the winning piece in the show. It's at least 10 feet long. You can see a lot more of it here: http://nathanielfoley.com/ The intricacy of it is intriguing and it all makes perfect sense once you read the artist's statement.

Nathaniel Foley's very lovely artist statement. If you have trouble reading it here, it's also on his website.

Tall Grass also has a gift shop which will display work by both its member artists and those juried into a show. Glad I have some note cards to put in there!
