This week there was an opening in the new Grand Center for the Arts in New Ulm. Their annual show, Artscape, is always fun to enter. The remodeled building is really nice. Good gallery space, lots of studio spaces for artists, work rooms for classes and a very nice apartment for a resident artists. A real class art space in a nice small town.
Two weeks ago, my studio mates and I hung a sampling of our work at Barnes and Noble for our bookfair. We use this project to raise some money to support our December show at the Emy Frentz Guild. The bookfair was really successful. This service from Barnes and Nobel is a real blessings for starving artists.

"Poppy Red" is a new painting for our show this Nov. and December.
The Carnegie Art Center in Mankato has a members show in December too. As a member I will be entering several of my smaller abstracts. This show hangs for the whole month of December.
Finally in January the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council will have a show at the St. Peter Arts Center for all the artists who were awarded a grant in the last round of awards. Since I recieved an award to attend a work show in Scottsdale, AZ, I will be able to hang my paintings from that experience.

Whew! What fun and then we add Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years in the mix. You will understand when I get totally mixed up with what is going on.
