I’m honored to say that I have 5 pieces on display [featured below] in the Grapevine Art Project‘s Juried Art Exhibit in the Tower Gallery inside the Grapevine Convention and Visitor’s Center located at 636 S. Main Street in downtown Grapevine, Texas.

The Free Exhibit runs April 6-26, 2018 and is full of art encompassing a range of mediums: jewelry, ceramics, photography, painting, block printing, textiles and so much more! If something catches your eye, guess what — it’s for sale too! Gallery hours coincide with the hours of the Visitor’s Center itself.

SHOW DATES

  • April 6-26

LOCATION

  • Tower Gallery
  • inside the Grapevine Convention & Visitor’s Center
  • 636 S. Main Street in Grapevine, Texas

GALLERY HOURS

As part of a new initiative, GAP is raising money to be used for an Art Scholarship Fund to help support a graduating senior for our local Grapevine Colleyville Independent School District. On the evening of April 14th there will be a Wine Trail drawing for some nice items, and a Silent Auction. The next Saturday on April 21 there will be another Silent Auction during the Artist’s Reception from 5-7pm.

ARTIST RECEPTION

  • Saturday, April 21st from 5-7pm

Unfortunately for me, I will not be at the Artist Reception on April 21st, since it happens to coincide with my appearance at the Main ST Fort Worth Arts Festival. But many of the other artists will be on hand to talk about their art and process, plus there’s free refreshments too.So if you’re not visiting me at my booth in Fort Worth, then I’d recommend you pop in for an evening of art!

The Juror is Mark Thompson, an award-winning photographer, videographer and filmmaker. Mark began his career as a painter before discovering his penchant for digital media, at which point he began making the move from being a full-time painter to full-time professional photographer and videographer. Over the years Mark’s training and experience has touched on a variety of different genres that include everything from commercial & product photography to fine art and even filmmaking. Mark has worked as photographer for such outfits as CBS News, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Deep Ellum Foundation, and the Lyndie Wilkes Advertising Agency (just to name a few), his photography as been shown in art galleries all over North Texas, and he is currently producing his first feature-length documentary film.
