If any art lovers are close enough to New Bern, NC this weekend, they are having their monthly Art Walk, featuring several local galleries. One of them is hosting their annual juried show, which I was lucky enough to have a painting selected for. The juror (Lia Newman) got her masters at Duke...although I did not try to persuade her with one of my Duke paintings! 293 works were submitted, only 60 were chosen, so I feel pretty honored.
The show runs through June 28th at the Bank of the Arts, the Art Walk is from 5-8 this Friday (May 11th).
The painting of mine that was chosen is titled "Night In Ghent". (That's a local historic neighborhood here.)
I sooooo wanted to enter one of my Duke paintings!
DukePA would have looked good on their wall.
The purpose of the book is to entice people out on game day to bring their own tailgate parties to Wallace Wade, so we've given them a head start in what we know works well on the grill since we cook for upwards of 80+ people a game. The paintings simply add to the atmosphere and the spirit of the book. (But all of this is for another thread. )
I stopped in the gallery on the way home to see everything that got submitted since they are putting it all on sale for today only, including those that didn't get juried in. So I learned that not only did my painting get accepted, but it also won an award (I don't know what until Friday night) and I learned that it was SOLD!!!! They had a pre-sale viewing party for bigwig art collectors Saturday night and my painting was bought then by a husband and wife.
When the cookbook comes out, you will advertise on DBR, won't you? Are you doing pairings, ie matching the food recipe with a particular beer?
Put me down for one and tell me where to send my money.
Not leaving until the game is over.
I've been on cloud nine all night. There is some amazingly great art in that show.
Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!
Go To Hell carolina, Go To Hell!
