Opening Receptions

It's been an extended weekend of opening receptions for Dan and I. On Friday night we were in Estes Park for the opening reception of the Lines Into Shapes show. It was a great opportunity to view all of the art work that has been accepted into that show and we would encourage any of you who are in the area to visit this exhibit. It runs through October 4th.

Here is a link to the winners in each of the categories, including Best of Show and People's Choice. Clearly there are a lot of talented artists in this show and we are happy to be a part of it. Attendance was great for the opening too. No, Dan & I didn't win in any of our respective categories....but you know, it truly is great that both of us had work accepted into this show. We feel we are among great company with the artists that were selected to participate.

Last night we went to Denver to attend the opening of Riva Sweetrocket's Heaven & Earth Exhibit at the Buell Theater. I think Riva is the nicest person you could ever meet and it's is wonderful to have her as a friend. In addition to being a wonderful person, she is a great talent. Her medium is pastels and her works just take your breath away.

Great show, Kathleen. Thanks for sharing the link. It was nice going thru and checking out all of the entries. I just gotta' say though, that judging is so subjective, and I'll leave it at that. One of my personal favorites (besides yours and Dan's, of course) was the serigraph "The Political Leadership". How funny, clever and well done was that?

Thanks also for the link to Riva's site. Her work is outstanding. I wish I could see it in person. Not only is the work so well done, but it has so much to say. Love it...

Thanks Linda! It is fun to enjoy the company of other talented artists. Love your 'cream of the cream' comment. Thanks.

Hi Don!

Yes, we enjoyed The Political Leadership painting...very clever.

You are welcome concerning Riva. She is phenomenal and truly, she is the nicest person you could ever want to meet.

Hey Elizabeth! Thanks. Great to see you back in the land of the web too. :D

You sure have been busy! Congrats on the show, the card that you're on, all of it.
Thanks for sharing about the fest, too...I definitely think you should put Krucoff Studios in it next year!

Thanks Karen! If we were accepted for next year's fest, that would be really cool.... :)

Hi Susanne! Thanks. It is a really nice venue.
