Thank you WEST ELM for offering POP-UP Stores to LOCAL Artists. I was deeply honored to have a table of Oil Pastel Smudge works being offered for sale in your beautiful store in downtown Reno, NV, on the Truckee River. In doing my research I was surprised to find out that WEST ELM has stores in 85+ Cities in the US, Australia, UK and the Middle East. Check out WEST ELM and their fabulous modern furniture, home decor and accessory store in your area. WestElm.com.
West Elm (WestElm.com) has a fabulous program where they invite local artist's in the area to a four hour Pop-Up Store in their place of business. Check out my works and even purchase something fun!
I will be introducing my new 2019 Calendars and Nevada Desert Magnets "All art created in the Oil Pastel Smudge technique!" Many thanks too to ARTOWN (RenoisArtown.com)

Reno, NV Closing Reception McKinley Arts & Cultural Center "Landscapes Reminiscent of the Nevada Desert" July 5, 5-7pm
I have decided to have 2 Receptions. One on the Opening and the other on the Closing of the Show. Hope you can make it? I will be sharing a slide show of black and white landscape images that have been my inspiration for my Nevada Desert landscapes.
Many Thanks to the City of Reno Arts & Cultural Commission in support of my art and efforts in the Oil Pastel Smudge technique.
It's great to have the City of Reno supporting my ART! Thank you City of Reno Arts and Cultural Commission! It is a great joy to be recognized in the community in which you live, work and thrive!

Besides being the Vice President of the Latimer Art Club, this month I am scheduled to be the Guest Speaker. "Learn what a SMUDGE can do!" You are invited to attend the lecture as my Guest. It's FREE and the Public is always welcome.
For the last few months I had to keep a secret as I was selected to exhibit for FREE in the AFCI Assoc. for Creative Industries "Innovation Center" of the 2018 CREATIVATION Conference held in Phoenix, AZ. I was a contestant for the "Ultimate Pitch" where the winner of the contest was to win $10,000 to further their development of their innovative idea.
I was not selected in the finalists but the access I had to the right individuals and companies to further my efforts of expanding the Oil Pastel Smudge technique look promising. Stay posted....and SMUDGE ON!
