Join us in Grapevine this Friday, November 17th at 6:30pm for a free reception celebrating the Grapevine Art Project‘s Winter Wonderland Show inside the Lancaster Theater Lobby at the Palace Arts Center located at 300 S. Main Street. Many artists will be in attendance so it’s a great chance to see what your local arts community is up to, and talk to us about our art.
If you can’t make it to the reception the show is currently open and will run through December 31st, and is available to view Monday through Friday from 9am – 5pm, as well as during other special events at the PAC.
A former GCISD art teacher, and fellow member of the Grapevine Art ProjectChris Brandley has something a little special to celebrate this holiday season. One of her oil paintings was licensed for use on Christmas snack tins. The tins have some mass distribution as they’re for sale at Big Lots stores around the country! I’ve nabbed some images from the artist’s website so you can see for yourself.

You can read the adventure of not only how the painting came to be, but how her art ended up on these tins by clicking here to visit her blog entry on the subject. So if you go into a Big Lots store and find the tins, I encourage you to send her a selfie with the post to her Facebook page, it’ll make her smile! Of course you can not only take a tin home from a Big Lots, but she has prints for sale of her artwork too.
I’ve got 4 different outlets this month where my photography is on exhibit. One of them now open to the public is at the historic Palace Arts Center in Grapevine where my photograph I took of Beacon Falls in the Hudson River Valley in New York entitled Bridge Over Troubled Waters is on display. It is but one work among many of the other talented works by members from the Grapevine Art Project. The show is free and open to the public.

Looking for some color to enliven your walls? These will be available for sale in my booth at the Foust Event Center during Main Street Days (May 19-21) in Grapevine, Texas. While I have variations of these at different sizes, these large format 16×16 inch prints on Fuji Pearl Paper are luminescent and presented in a 20×20 inch mat. They can be framed as a stand alone piece, or can be hung in a grouping together.
I hope you’ll swing on by. Admission is free on Friday until 5pm, afterwards while admission is required to come out to the Festival, there’s live music, a wide arrange of food and drink (including all sorts of craft beers!) and there’s a ton of fun things to do. There’s free parking and a shuttle offered as well. For more details, check out the city’s official page here for the 33rd Annual Main Street Days.
The complete Texas Longhorn series will be available as 16×16 inch prints on Fuji Deep Matte Paper, presented in a 20×20 inch mat. And you can find variations of these images at other sizes too this weekend at my booth in Grapevine’s Main Street Days. Please be sure to check me out inside the Foust Event Center.
My 5″ x 5″ greeting cards arrived. They’re printed on specialty metallic pearl paper, giving each card a shimmer (which I tried to capture in the video I posted to my Facebook page). The cards will make their debut at my booth during this year’s Main Street Days in Grapevine, Texas held May 19 -21, I’ll be inside the Foust Event space.
One card for $5, or five cards for $20 (tax included).
I am a big believer that no space is too small for art. Whether it’s your office in a row of cubicles, a locker, or a wee little nook, you can always fill it with things that inspire and move you.
In that spirit, I’ve put together a bunch of mini-frames, with 3×3 inch prints inside them of my photos, which I’ll be selling at my booth in the Foust Event Center for $10 a piece this upcoming weekend (May 19-21, 2017) at Main Street Days in Grapevine, Texas. Here’s a sneak peak of what’s available:
As a reminder, I have one art show wrapping on Friday, and another starting on Saturday here in the local Dallas / Fort Worth area. You are invited to come out and join me for the festivities and enjoy the arts while supporting your local arts community.
