Juror for the Louisville Fine Art Show 2008

This year, I have been invited to be juror for The 23rd Annual National Fine Art Show, sponsored by the Louisville Art Association. The show will be held August 30 to September 7, 2008, in the Louisville Center for the Arts, 801 Grant Street, Louisville CO, 80027. The cash prizes to be awarded total $3000.
Prospectus for this show.
Or contact: Louisville Art Association, C/O Donna Flebbe, 2391 Lavender Hill Lane, Lafayette, CO 80026.
June 2, 2008 is the deadline for receipt of the entries, so get moving. Judging from the quality of the images in last year's catalogue, this should be a very good show.

Benefit the Museum of Contemporary Art / Denver

Several limbs have been trimmed from this tree on the north side of the large lake in Washington Park, Denver, since I photographed it and painted this painting, "Mothertree". I loved the horizontal- ity of the tree, the way it beckoned  for one to climb into its branches, to become engulfed. Some of that feeling has been diminished by the hacking, but my tree still is the opposite of that one quality of tree-ness, verticality.
"Mothertree" is painted in oil on canvas, is 30" X 78", and is available for viewing and purchase in the development office of the Museum of Contemporary Art/Denver. Please contact Scott Anderson at 303-298-7554. 100% of the proceeds will benefit MCA/D.
