In this image from the Spanish Peaks Arts Council home page, my two pieces can be seen near the corner for the 2020 National Juried Photography show. I am honored to be part of this high quality show with The Great White Throne, Evening and Merrick Butte, Twilight. I am not sure if I will be able to see the show in person given the impact of Covid-19, but I certainly would like to be able to do so.
D'Art Gallery Invites "Lower Yosemite Falls, Late Afternoon" for inclusion in the Spot On! Exhibition
Lower Yosemite Falls, Late Afternoon has been invited to the Spot On! Show at the D'Art Gallery at 900 Santa Fe in Denver, Colorado. Michael Paglia, art reporter/critic for Westword magazine is the juror for this particular show. The show runs from August 14th through September 6th.
The day has arrived! Rod Leeseberg has the show now hanging. It will be up June through August. The official artist reception is July 18, 2 - 4, but I can be readily available to answer any questions. Please let Rod know if you do as I am only ten minutes away and retired, thus available during the day.
Today, I dropped off 14 hanging pieces and a large number of bin prints that will be on exhibit and for sale over the next three months. Included in the hanging pieces is a limited edition (1/10) of a 20x30 (or 30x40 framed) print of Bryce Canyon Amphitheater from Sunset Point, Morning. The artist reception will be held July 18th at Frame by Frame. at that time, the first 20 people to stop in will get a free face mask with the On and Off the Road Logo. This is an exhibit that has been a year in the planning. If I get some time, I will create a collection of the pieces included in the exhibit on m artwork archive public page: https://www.artworkarchive.com/profile/rodney-buxton/collection/frame-by-frame-featured-artist-show
Being 69 years old and in a high risk group, I have been staying home quite a lot the past week and a half. However, I'm not bored. Indeed, I am taking this time to work on more art. I am trying to finish up my Death Valley National Park series. I have severn out of a planned eight, possibly nine pieces for that particular park collection. The latest piece is Mesquite Flats Sand Dunes and the Amargosa Mountains, Lifting Fog Early Morning.
My partner and I have a unique experience when we visited Death Valley last December. On the third of three and one-half days in the park, a low pressure system came through causing a whole day of drizzling rain in Death Valley, probably meeting the average rainfall for the year in that single day. When we awoke the next morning, the valley was covered in heavy fog. But, with the rising sun, the fog began to lift. I was able to capture a number of photographs, including the basis for this piece.
...the framed version of Glacier Bay Wake of the Boat, Afternoon can still be viewed for sale at R Gallery's Online store: https://rgallery.art/collections/monochrome?page=4.
Many Thanks to Nick Barber for grabbing this show of Merrick Butte, Twilight hanging in Sangre de Cristo Art Center's Representing the West: a New Frontier show.
At the opening reception for the 42nd Parkview Fine Arts Festival, I discovered a pleasant surprise. Great White Throne received second place in the photography category. This is the third juried show that has invited the piece to be part of an exhibit. In addition, From John Muir Trail, Afternoon, Zabriskie Point, Winter Sunrise and Mariposa Grove, Afternoon also were featured as hanging art. In addition, two other smaller bin pieces were prominently featured on the entryway wall. They are Bryce Canyon Amphitheater from Sunset Point, Morning and Lower Yosemite Falls, Late Afternoon.
My niece Jennifer Hornbaker took this photo of Glacier Bay Wake of the Boat, Afternoon at the R Gallery in Boulder. If you're in Boulder, please stop by the gallery for a look at the Monochrome show.
