The twist this year is that artwork did not have to be 8″ x 8″ or even square. 100 artists, 150 artworks, the Corrine Woodman Gallery full of little wonders. I love this kind of shows for all the different styles and subjects gracing the same square surfaces, but breaking free from the traditional squares made the this show look even more interesting. The reception yesterday marked the official beginning of the Art for the Heart fundraiser. More info here:
My 8″ x 8″ piece, “Conversation”, is a part of this year’s Art for the Heart Gala at The Arts Center in Corvallis. The opening reception is on Thursday, September 28, 2023, 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m. There are 150 small artworks to choose from. All sales benefit The Arts Center that does a lot of good work for the community.
All artwork will go on sale after the reception through the Art for the Heart 2023 Catalog. Preview price is $75. You can get the event or free online catalog tickets to purchase your favorite artworks at 8 p.m. on September 28 (following the reception). For those pieces that do not find their collector during the preview period, the art will be for sale at the Gala for $40 starting October 7.
The series of foals that I’ve created for the Art for the Heart show has been sold. The show benefited The Arts Center in Corvallis, OR.
A lovely lady bought all three as a gift for a former endurance rider who has her own horses. Happy to contribute and glad that all three drawings will stay together.
Dropped my contribution to the Art Gallery for Art for the Heart that benefits Center for the Arts in Corvallis. I am not sure if the show will be an actual physical one or online only like many others. I haven’t been to the place since way before the pandemic, and it was so nice to walk in and enjoy the current show and new things in their gift shop. It was almost normal. Almost.
Three 5” x 5” drawings make the “Delicate Beginnings” little series. It would be four, but the forth one became a casualty of forgetting to cover the ink drawing with final fixative before attempting to mount it on top of the tissue paper with pastels and powdered bone. It will require heavy touch-up and maybe adding some color to the foal. I am not sure about color yet, but it’s a possibility. Maybe all four would benefit from some color.

Very happy to announce that my 8″ x 8″ mixed media piece on canvas has been juried into the Around Oregon Annual 2019 show.
