Opening Reception: Thursday, April 21 from 6-8pm. I will be introducing two new pieces at this great show.  A bunch of artists and they always put on a Mint Julep worthy event. The pieces are called "Big Spirit" and "Mandala" measuring 20" x 20" x 3' with wooden frame.  I created each piece with acrylic paint and a graphite pencil on canvas.

Message from curator: Although the economy is slowly recovering, buyers are still cautious in their spending.  In response, the gallery is once again presenting our popular show, The Price is Right: Art Under $1000. Over the past year, I spent a great deal of time searching for artists who are making interesting work, but who are not necessarily well-known.  Although there is work by many established artists in the show, it is also includes wonderful work by less familiar artists, some of whom are still in art school.

The gallery is installed " salon style" with an amazing diversity of paintings, drawings, photography, prints and three-dimensional objects by 40 Southern artists.  While the quality of the work is very good, so are the prices.  It is a win-win exhibition in that the prices are right for the buyer, and we hope the sales - even in this difficult economy - will be good for the artists.  At the very least, this is an opportunity to enjoy perusing a broad range of art created by talented artists working here in the South.
