October 2018 Update

 

I was fortunate this month to have two paintings accepted into the 64th Parallel Juried Exhibit in the Bear Gallery at the Fairbanks Arts Association at Pioneer Park, “Flowing Waters” and “September Gold”. The show will hang until October 27, 2018, if you would like to see them.  Also, two of my paintings are currently hanging at the Alaska House Art Gallery on 10th and Cushman, “Autumn Trees and “Rainbow Colors”. They are now on winter hours.  I hope if you have not had a chance to visit either gallery recently, that you will take advantage of our pleasant fall weather and do so.
