After some much needed downtime 2016 is off to a great start. I will be on the board of the “Santa Ynez Valley Arts” this year. We are working hard to bring some wonderful events to the valley. As always, we will be hosting art from our members at Gallery Los Olivos with several award shows and other special showings throughout the year. We also have moved Art in the Park from Los Olivos to Santa Ynez in the Historical Museum courtyard and carriage house. This show will feature my work and many of the same artists as last year. “Art in the Courtyard” will be held on the second Saturday of each month and the museum will also host a free museum day on our show days. We will be kicking off “Art in the Courtyard” in March with two shows on the 5th and 12th. Our Annual Quick Draw festival will be moved to November this year (much cooler) and be part of an overall “Arts Festival Weekend” featuring many events throughout the valley. For more information on these as well as other art events see the Santa Ynez Valley Arts web page at http://santaynezvalleyarts.org.
The work you see above titled “Wild Boar Study #1” will be part of the juried show at Gallery Los Olivos beginning next week on February 2nd. I just finished the series and framed this work today. This work is a signed edition of only 2 and measures 19 x 22.5 inches without the frame.
