Last night I went to the reception for the La Quinta Museum suprise show ‘Local Color’. This show happened because the planned show of Generation Z artwork and musings turned out to be a much physically smaller show than anticipated and the museum suddenly had a lot of bare walls. A little social media work to local artists to bring in a piece first come first served quickly fixed the problem.
The lady in the black dress bottom left is Alana – the gallery owner at sm’Art studio in La Quinta. Finally caught her on camera! Behind her is Michael Angelo (Hernandez) who also sells work there. Yes, my work hangs next to that of MichaelAngelo!
Nice of the museum to paint that floating wall to match my painting. Shame about them not putting up the sign I gave them that wrote out the Shakespearean sonnet written for and painted into the painting.
I arrived at the reception for the Riverside Art Museum Membership show later than intended (ah, traffic in Temecula) and just caught the tail end of the awards. Ran into a friend of mine – r. mike nichols. He hadn’t won an award, and neither had I, apparently, but his friend Mike had. Here are some images from the show.
Did you guess which one was mine? It’s the one behind the pig’s ear….. Actually I kinda like that pig.
