Art on the Prairie

A big thanks to everyone who supported the artists at the Art on the Prairie show this weekend, and a special thank you to those who made the effort to find Larry and me on the second floor of Town Craft.   You went the extra mile, hunting us up,  climbing stairs or waiting for a very slow elevator and I really do appreciate it.  We had a great time, met some lovely new friends and became reacquainted with others we haven't seen for a long time.

Here are a some shots of our exhibit.  It was a great but exhausting experience.


We are thinking that perhaps this may be the beginning of a new phase of our lives,  as family and work obligations begin to dwindle, we would like to do more of this kind of show.  It was our dream when we were younger to travel the country in an RV and paint,  but things that sound good to you when you are young, don't always work out when you "mature." The Internet has changed the art world considerably, as has the economy.  So, while we don't really know what the future holds, we know that we will always keep painting.

Art on the Prairie Preview

Art on the Prairie 2011 
November 12th 10am-6pm
November 13th 10am-4pm

Art on the Prairie 2011 will showcase artists' work of a variety of media in 5 buildings in Perry: Hotel Pattee, Town Craft, Carnegie Library Museum, Security Bank Building and the new DMACC at Perry VanKirk Career Academy.

We will also be having student exhibits, storytelling and children's art activities at the Perry Public Library. As in 2010, music will fill each building both days. This year musicians will be invited to jam at Hiawatha Station when not scheduled during the day. A new addition this year is our Poets Corner. It will be an exciting year.

Anyone from the Central Iowa area, or if you happen to find yourself here for whatever reason. please visit Larry and me at our booth at the Town Craft Center.  We will be on the second floor. 
Here is a small sampling of the work we will be bringing.

We will have original artwork for sale as well as prints. note cards and some Christmas cards.  Set up is on Thursday night, so I will try to have more photos to share on Friday.
