3 Opportunities to See my Artwork!

Depending on where you live, you may have a chance to see my artwork at a show near you in February!

See my art at SheVaCon, Hotel Roanoke, Roanoke, VA
SheVaCon, Feb. 8-10, 2013
The first opportunity comes the second weekend of February, in Roanoke, VA.  Several pieces of my fantasy artwork will be on display at the SheVaCon Art Show. The show runs Friday through Sunday, February 8-10 at the historic Hotel Roanoke.

Robin W. Bailey Book-Signing Feb. 15, 2013
Join Robin W. Bailey, Grace Townley, and me for an art show and book-signing at Prospero's Books in Kansas City (the 3600 Broadway #107, KC, MO location) on February 15 at 6:00 p.m.

Robin W. Bailey, author
Robin W. Bailey is a former president of Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA), one of the founders of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame (see another post about it on the KaCSFFS Blog), and is the author of numerous books, e-books, short stories, and poems.

In addition to his "official" website, which hasn't been updated in a while, he has an "unofficial" website, which also hasn't been updated for a while. I suspect that is because he's been too busy writing! 

I especially want to thank Robin for the idea of turning his book-signing into an event that includes a chance to show artwork, as well!

Grace Townley's Inspired by a Star Formation
Grace Townley is an accomplished oil painter whose passion is outer space. Her "Interstellar Weather" portfolio gives a representative sample of her work, which ranges from very large paintings to a wide variety of affordably-priced prints.

The image at right is one of my favorite examples of Grace's work. I first encountered Grace at the Art Westport show in September 2012, and she joined a group of us in December for the Holiday Visual Feast.

Since a good bit of my fantasy artwork probably won't be back from SheVaCon by then, I'll be showing a mixture of fantasy, nature, and architectural themes, including pieces from my two new multiple-original editions.

Arti Gras Gala and Annual Juried Art Show, Feb. 22-24, 2013
I am delighted to announce that for a second year a piece of my paper sculpture has been accepted into the Arti Gras Annual Juried Art Show, sponsored by the Leawood Foundation of Leawood, KS.

The big event of that weekend is the Arti Gras Gala on Friday, February 22, at the Leawood Community Center in the lower level under City Hall (4800 Town Center Drive, Leawood, KS). Gala 6-8:30 p.m. 2/22.

Rose Dance was accepted into Arti Gras 2013!
This is a delightful, Mardi Gras-themed reception, to open the show and announce the recipients of several cash prizes. Most of the artists will be there (including me!), and if it's anything like last year the food and drink will be delicious. It's a fundraiser for the Foundation, so there is an admission fee.

If you can't make the Gala, the show remains open to the public for free viewing from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. that Saturday and Sunday, February 23-24.  

Please note that the address for the Feb. 15 book signing/art show location has been updated from the original post.
