PLAZA ART SHOW


Kansas City was fantastic.  The Plaza Art Fair, a major art show, was going on last weekend.   Here are a few of the pieces that I found interesting.  There were lots and lots of  artists working with recycled materials.  I don't know if this is a trend or those in charge of jurying the show had a preference, but I love the creativity and inventiveness expressed in this type of art.  The last two images are actually photographs.  The painterly, textural effect was fantastic.  The artist was very generous in sharing a little of his process.  Now, if I can just get that effect with paint!

Tonight is the awards ceremony for the San Diego Watercolor Society International Exhibition.  I am looking forward to seeing the show.  I have been honored with a big award.  I will post more about the show and award later this week.

Myra: Congrats on your award at the SD International show ... where is the show hanging. I'll be in town Sunday.

I'm glad you posted the digital art pieces. I'm a photographer and have been working with this technique for a few years. It's addicting. I'm laughing, because one of the reasons I love your work is for your textures -- and hope to duplicate that with my montage pieces ;-)

Looking forward to seeing your piece(s) in SD.
