Governor's Residence Exhibit February-March

I just received word from The Nebraska Arts Council that my time slot for the Governor's Residence Exhibit will be February 9-March 11, 2011.  Yea!  This gives me time to complete a few more pieces and hopefully won't interfere with too many other family activities.  Be sure to get to Lincoln during those dates to see the show and enjoy the beautiful building where our Governor lives.  Regular tours are scheduled for Thursdays, but if that doesn't work for you, it's fairly easy to schedule a special visit.  Check out the Residence web sitephoto of residence:  http://www.governorsresidence.ne.gov/images/mansion_main.jpg

Governor's Mansion!!

I am honored and excited.  I've just been notified that I am accepted to the Governor's Mansion Exhibition Program!  This is an awesome program sponsored by the Nebraska Arts Council.  They chose 10 artists for the coming year, each of which will have a month long, one-artist exhibition in the beautiful gallery/meeting room in the basement of the Governor's Mansion in Lincoln.  The application process was interesting...totally online through a site called slideroom.com.

The painting shown on the left, Finding My Way, is only 6" x 4".  Originally done for a "postcard" contest with the National Collage Society, it was one of  five images included with my application to the Governor's show.
