2009 Arkansas Artists Calendar Signing Event

I am fortunate to have my painting Seen Better Days featured in the 2009 Arkansas Artists Calendar.  The calendar is on sale at many galleries across the state.  First lady Ginger Beebe will be signing these calendars at Gallery Central, 800 Central Avenue in Hot Springs, on Friday evening, October 3, from 5:30 to 7:30, during Gallery Walk.  I plan to join her to sign the calendars, and will also have this painting on display and for sale at Gallery Central that evening.

My painting Mountain View Arkansas Barn, featured in the 2008 calendar, will be on display and for sale that evening at Artists Workshop Gallery, 810A Central Street, just a few steps down from Gallery Central.  2008 calendars are still available for sale.

I hope you can join Ms. Beebe, me, and other artists for this fun event.

Arkansas Artists 2009 Calendar Reception

On the evening of September 10, Jeanette and I attended a reception for artists and sponsors involved in the 2009 Arkansas Artists Calendar at the Governor's mansion in Little Rock.  It was a very nice event, with the Governor and Mrs. Beebe in attendance, as well as many calendar artists and sponsors.  A lot of energy was devoted to artists autographing each others' art images in the calendar.  I plan to join Mrs. Beebe at a calendar signing event at Gallery Central in Hot Springs on Friday evening, October 3.
