January Art News

In my attempt to simplify oldartguy.com, I may have actually improved it.  The new art section now opens with “Art News” from which one can go to “The Gallery” where all works are given equal space.  Believe it or not, these changes are making my job easier.  Let me know how you like them.

Charles Wallace is providing our spacer/divider this month.
Charles’ “Fall Comes to the Mountain Meadow” won Best in Show in Evision Arts Online Fall Show and “A Fine Fall Day at the Lake” won honorable mention.

Karen Vernon and Ken Muenzenmayer recently announced the closure of The Gallery at Round Top.
“2020 has brought on a huge change for all of us.  Three weeks agos we were notified that Bybee Square is selling and all of the  shops on the square are losing our leases in May.  We will be closing out all of our inventory.  We will begin gradually with items we own and then, with those that wish to participate, we move into consigned works.  This will be done during Antique Fair.   Of course, all of the people trying to get a deal will be shopping the sales.   If you wish to have us mark your pieces down 20% as part of our close out please let us know.
We will remain open through the Antique Fair and begin to move out soon after.
We are releasing you from your contracts and would like to invite you to participate in ArtWalk in Fayetteville to be held May 2nd and 3rd.  The deadline for entry January 17th.  Here is the link to apply.  https://form.jotform.com/90015951516150  The entertainment this year the MS150 is coming through on Saturday and the crowds will be filling the town.
I am the Executive Director at ARTS and will be reaching out to some of you to offer shows in the Ross Gallery located on the ARTS campus in Fayetteville.
Life changes and ever evolves.  We have enjoyed having your work and wish you the best.

Sincerely,
Karen Vernon”

Mirka Hokkanen was awarded the 2019 Narrative Art Award by the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. The award, which is judged by a rotating panel of experts, honors illustrators who show excellence incorporating narrative sequence and storytelling in their work.  Hokkanen will receive an all-expense paid trip to the New York Winter conference, and her winning illustrations will be displayed during the Portfolio Showcase. The other submissions are currently featured in an online gallery at  https://scbwiart.blogspot.com.

Lisa Hughes has an invitation for everyone: “I want to invite all of my friends and family to a wonderful new gallery that is representing me. It is the Mercer St. Art Gallery in Dripping Springs, Texas. 330 W. Mercer St. in the middle of the downtown Historic District. My dear friend Nina Mihm owned the Dragonfly Gallery in Austin and closed it a few years ago. She and her friend Debbie have now opened the Mercer St. Art Gallery as partners. It is a fantastic gallery!”

Hailey Herrera has some good news: “How wonderful that the company, Geo-Logic Associates, Albuquerque, NM picked Morning Song I for this year company holiday cards and purchased a royalty-free license (size of 2000 pixels X 1500 pixels) of Morning Song I. The image will be printed with custom text and logo on the inside.”
Hailey is having a show at the SEAD Gallery from January19 through February; 19 with the reception scheduled for January 16 from 6:00 to 9:00.

At SEAD from January 16th- March 19th, experience the brilliance and beauty of all the seasons from taking a light stroll through the Gallery. However, on January 16th SEAD will be hosting an opening reception for our newest exhibit. With beautiful and masterfully crafted art from local artist Hailey Herrera this opening reception is something you don't want to miss.”
