Today Kathy Friedline, Phyllis Jeffery and I took down the Art of Reading exhibit at the West Regional Library. This was a great show, had alot of support from the community, and with help of the Friends of the Library added several beautiful pieces of artwork to the Library's collection for display in the various library branches. It was really sad to see that wonderful show come down and expose the empty walls of the library. But at the same time we were taking the artwork down, Bill Morris' group was taking in artwork for the next show - the Bird Show! This show should be hung by Monday. Kathy and I both had artwork to enter into the Bird show. Kathy had a wonderful ceramic tile painted and glazed with a pelican raku style; and a photo of the one-legged seagull that hangs out at the River Shack on Dog River. I did an acrylic on canvas painting of a group of seagulls: "Hitchhikers on the Dauphin Island Ferry". Looks like it will be a good show with lots of variety of birds. Should be up for December and January, I believe.
I'm working on a few "miniature" paintings to place in the Cathedral Square Gallery this month - shooting to complete them by the LODA Art Walk next Friday. They are mostly based on a menagerie of farm-type animals I saw at the Baldwin County Fair in Robertsdale. I'll post some of those when I finish. Meanwhile, here are the Seagull hitchhikers.
