Close of Show at the Fine Arts Center

My exhibit at the Fine Arts Center of Hot Springs closed last week. Unfortunately, neither of the Gallery Walk evenings worked well for me... the Fine Arts Center closed for the actual evening, due to snow earlier in the day, and we had very few visitors for the following Friday's special reception. However, my sales at the Center were good, with seven original paintings and a fair number of prints and notecard sets finding new homes during the month. To top it all off, due to some heavy rain around the end of the month, five of my paintings hanging in the Center suffered water damage. Fortunately, the paintings themselves and their frames were not damaged, but I needed to disassemble, clean, re-mat, and reassemble them.

My next major exhibit will be at Artists Workshop Gallery in Hot Springs for the month of July, with an opening reception during Gallery Walk on July 4. Perhaps we'll see some of of the art fans who did not make it to my exhibit at the Fine Arts Center. I also have my large painting Mountain View Arkansas Barn currently hanging in the lobby of the Woodlands Auditorium in Hot Springs Village.
