Another interesting gallery show coming up in May, All About Texas, a joint undertaking by the R S Hanna Gallery and the Society of Animal Artists, will include dozens of fine works from Signature members of the Society, including yours truly. Its a very all encompassing showing of subject matter, all with a grounding in being seen in the great state of Texas. Well worth a visit and perhaps a new addition to your collection.

As noted in my last post, a very special upcoming event will be taking place in May. Dates are not set as yet, but that announcement will be coming soon. "Out of Africa", a very special partnering with African Wildlife Foundation, will give many of the Society of Animal Artists Signature membership a platform to offer works with an African theme during that two week sale. I will have three works included in the sale, shown below. More details will be posted as the time draws near for the sale to go live.

A very exciting event is coming later in the spring, a joint venture between The Society of Animal Artists and The African Wildlife Foundation - a very special sale show to benefit the causes of the Foundation in their endeavors to help African wildlife and the people of the continent to share their natural world and resources. Out of Africa . . . will go live on line sometime in mid May with more than twelve dozen special works of art from Signature members of the Society, fine two dimensional paintings, drawings, and pastels, as well as majestic works of sculpture. This event will surely attract huge attention with diverse offerings in a range of very affordable pricing. I will post more information as time draws near for the sale to commence, and you may wish to check back here or on my Facebook page for the latest updates, including a sneak peek at many of the works that will be included in the sale (including three of mine!).

Though it closes on Valentine's Day, my good friend, C. P. B. V. Kempen's traveling exhibition encompasses a marvelous output of a fine, fine artist. Carel has listed all the works included in the touring show on a special blog page, linked here. so if you've not seen it in person somewhere along the line of its previous venues, take a look and marvel at Carel's most unique, well referenced and visually exciting work.

Has it really been a month since my last post here?
Well, with about ten days to go till I will be on the road heading to Charleston, South Carolina for this year's Southeastern Wildlife Exposition, I figured it was time to make my first post for 2016.
It will be a bit like 'going home' to do the show once again after a decade hiatus. I had done the Expo for 17 consecutive years beginning in 1990, before backing away in 2006. It's a great show in a very wonderful, warm and historic location so if you are within an easy drive, well worth a trip into Charleston during the run of the show. Check out all that the Expo has to offer with the link above. I'll be in the Charleston Place Hotel, February 12-14. Come by and see me!

With the announcement and posting of this year's Richeson75 Animals, Birds and Wildlife finalists and competition winners yesterday, I was extremely honored to find "Grandmother's Chair" had taken Best in Show. Two others of my works also were included in the Finalist list along with some fine work by the others who made that final cut.
The Richeson show is an online show, but the work itself can be seen in person, currently, as it is hanging as part of Leaving Our Mark: In Celebration of the Pencil at the D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts, part of the Springfield Museums in Massachusetts. That show hangs through the end of March.
