Here is what I am doing Saturday

"Art Round Up at the Grange"
Annual Art Show by the Artists Guild of the Santa Ynez Valley

Held in conjunction with "Quick Draw" in Los Olivos
Saturday, August 15, 10 am

The Santa Ynez Valley Grange will be ablaze with color on August 15, when members of the Artists Guild hold their festive annual fine art exhibit. The theme is the Infinite Variety of Art. Guild artists express their artistic visions in a variety of intriguing ways. You'll enjoy seeing the exhibit and talking to the artists. Refreshments will be served.

The Grange is located at 2374 Alamo Pintado Avenue, right next to the Park in downtown Los Olivos where "Quick Draw" takes place. Sponsored by the Los Olivos Gallery Organization, this is an all-day visual arts experience. There will be gallery open houses, special art exhibits, art demonstrations, and a silent art auction. Highlight of the day is the actual Quick Draw, where professional artists race against the clock in the park to create a finished painting in 45 minutes. These art works are then sold to the highest bidder in a live auction.

When you're in Los Olivos for Quick Draw, take in the Guild's special exhibit,
"Art Round Up at the Grange." Saturday, August 15.

I am not in the quick draw. I am exhibiting in the grange during the event. Come by if you are in the area. I have some new work I will bring. The quick draw is fun to watch.....

seeing your painting reminded me of a story i heard yesterday from a friend whose sister is an artist. she'd been working with burlap and it turned out that old burlap is an excellent place for mold to grow. short story her sister got ill with lung problems and it took sometime to get diagnosis and treatment.
