Birds Nest Invitational

Containers - 8 x 10 Oil on Linen Panel

Bird's Nest Invitational
This is a painting that was accepted into the Bird's Nest Invitational at the Quinlan Visual Arts Center. This is a special Spring exhibition with proceeds benefiting Elachee Nature Science Center. The show was inspired by artist (and juror) Roseta Santiago’s recent series of bird’s nest paintings and the feelings evoked by this powerful symbol of security and comfort.The show will be hanging until May 30, 2010.

Smith-Gilbert Gardens 
I have 22 paintings in the Hiram Butler House in the Smith-Gilbert Gardens for the month of April. The gardens are located at 2382 Pine Mountain Road, Kennesaw, GA 30152. There will be an artists reception on April 24, from 1:00 until 3:00 at the gardens. Everyone is invited to the reception and come early and see the beautiful gardens.

Burton Gallery Plein Air Show
I will be leaving immediately after the reception at the Smith-Gilbert Gardens to attend the opening reception at The Burton Gallery and Emporium for "Impressions of the Sautee Valley". The reception will be held from 4:00 until 6:00 pm. Light fare will be prepared by the Stovall House, who sponsored this first of four seasonal plein air shows. This show contains paintings done in the winter of the area around the Sautee Valley. Burton Gallery is located at 150 Burton Dam Road, Clarkesville, Georgia 30523  not far from Batesville, Ga.
