Art Show.

Here are a few photos from the Gallery Art Show I am participating in :) I belong to a group here in Oregon called Three Rivers Artist Guild or TRAG for short. It is a group of talented professional and amateur artists and crafters. They run the gamut from photographers thru 2D artists, metal smiths, fabric artists, weavers, potters to knitters, sculptors, Etch a sketch artists, clock makers, jewelry makers and more.

I love the "Ants" they sold on opening night. I talked to the Artist and he said they are very popular, I asked him if he had anymore because I wanted one, thankfully he does :)

I think the hanging committee did a great job. Sometimes when you have so many different mediums coming tog. it is difficult to have a cohesive whole.

Does that photography on the little table look familiar :) (Hint: Magnolia Tree in my Garden :)


The Gallery has a nice light, bright feel to it. Very Welcoming. The Artists who are on display will take it in turns to man the Gallery.

These are the pieces I put in the show. I usually work pretty big, 4 x 5 ft. but because of space restrictions I had to come up with smaller pieces which is a challenge when you work as big as I usually do but it was a good exercise in containment. Some are pieces I worked on last year and some are new for this show.

The last piece is called "Ladybug" but when I took the photos I realised you couldn't see her, so here is a close up of the "Lady".


Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.

Poppy, what a beautiful space! Congratulations. I love the ants too.

Yeah, even though I'm fighting an losing battle with the ants in my kitchen these days, I have to say it...I love those ants.

The gallery is beautifully curated. I participated in something like that when I lived in San Jose (pre-kiddo, when I still had time to paint) - it was such a hodge-podge. Your space is really lovely.

It's a lovely gallery T and anyone would be proud to exhibit their art there. Your pieces look wonderful and are beautifully displayed. Would be great if there was some way of posting that photo of your wall of art work on your etsy shop, it would show people how lovely they look on display...which I guess is one of the advantages of having an exhibition. :)
I adore the ants, that's about the only kind of ant I do like, and the only ones I would allow on my dinning room table. LOL

Looks like a terrific show. And isn't it wonderful to have a group of artists to work and share with? I belong to a cooperative gallery here in N.H. and aside from it being a great place to show and sell work, it is wonderful to have the friendship and support of fellow artists. Making art can be a lonely occupation otherwise.
