The Judge!

ss2016postera

I am honored to serve as Juror/Judge for the Wilmington Art Association’s 34th annual juried spring art show & sale. The opening reception and awards ceremony will be held April 7th at the Community Arts Center/Hannah Block USO bldg. The address: 120 South St. Wilmington, NC 28401.

There were nearly 400 entries with 266 in the show. The exhibition is a broad example of art produced in the area including just about every media can think of. There are some truly outstanding pieces in this show and I encourage anyone to attend the festivities. I always love an art party 🙂

 

See you there,

Chad

Incredible Wilmington!

So, the plein air demonstration happened in Wilmington, NC on St. Patrick’s day (notice my green undershirt). Liz Hosier from the Wilmington Art Association was my helpful guide/host for the day supplying a delicious roast beef sub from one of the great downtown delis, yummy. I didn’t know what to expect as far as the turnout but the town of Wilmington blew me away. Liz counted at least 40 people! (see pic below)

Waxing eloquent…

As you can see,  we were blocking up the entire pier. They were such a wonderful group of people with lots of intelligent questions and all very attentive. Most even laughed at my silly stories. There was one special moment when I invited a passing little girl to participate in the painting. We all had a great time. If you live near Wilmington I highly recommend joining the WAA.
