I am honored and thrilled to say that I have been invited to show in the Rogue Community College’s December Invitational at the Firehouse Art Gallery, Grants Pass, OR.
The exhibition dates are November 24th through December 10th, 2015. First Friday Artist Reception is on December 4th from 5:30 to 8:30 pm.
The gallery is located at the corner of H and Fourth Streets in the Historic City Hall, Grants Pass, Oregon. Business hours are Tuesday – Friday, 11:30am to 4:30pm, or tours by appointment. For more information, I invite you to visit the Firehouse Gallery’s website.
About the show, the curators say:
“An exhibit of work by Anne Baxter, Shoshana Dubiner, Denise Kester, Rio Montero, Micah Ofstedahl and Margaret Stermer-Cox. Fire Mountain Gems will exhibit their annual art show in the Community Exhibits Room.”
The invited artists work in several media and a variety of styles. I was told by the art director that the artists selected have a common quality of a fantasy or whimsical approach to their work. On a personal note, I can hardly wait to see the exhibition! It should be fun and fascinating!
I will be showing five watercolor paintings from my “Peggy’s People” collection. I’d like to share with you my thoughts on the collection:
“People have been one of my favorite subjects for drawing and painting since childhood. It seems natural for me to create images inspired by family, friends and strangers. I work from life, memory and imagination. I like to draw designs that suggest that something is happening or a story. My goal is to go beyond the surface and show the joy and beauty of life.”
If you are in the area, I would like to invite you to please drop by and see the exhibition at the Firehouse Gallery in Grants Pass.
