38th Annual Juried Exhibition: Opening tomorrow!

I’m happy to share that two of my paintings are included in the 38th Annual Juried Exhibition at the Barbara Conrad Art Gallery in Durango, Colorado, opening tomorrow:

July 11 – August 9
Opening reception: Friday, July 11 from 5-7 p.m.

Durango Arts Center: Barbara Conrad Art Gallery
802 East Second Avenue

I’m excited that I’ll be able to attend the opening reception and spend a few days in this beautiful town. In addition to getting to meet new people and experience the art and culture of Durango, my mini-trip will include camping, hiking and lots of new scenery for sketching and painting.

Hanging the show

I spent this morning working with Caitlin and Bryan at Runnels Gallery, organizing the salon-style hanging of my show. There is still a lot to be done including lighting and furniture arranging, not to mention some framing! However, I can finally tell how it will fit in the space and am getting really excited about the final outcome.
