While the beginning of autumn appears imminent, I\’m enjoying these last few days of summer. I trust you are as well.
I have a few things to share with you.
First of all, great news! Fabulous news!
Our good friend and fabulous artist, Shannon Lawlor, has recently had a piece accepted into a prestigious international exhibition and sale.
“The American Plains Artists has accepted artwork by Shannon Lawlor for inclusion in its 26th Annual Juried Exhibit & Sale to be held at the Great Plains Art Museum, Lincoln, NE, Sept. 3-Nov. 28, 2010. Four hundred fourteen entries were received from 154 artists from all across the USA and Canada. One hundred thirty-six artworks from 98 artists were accepted into this Show. Shannon Lawlor’s artwork titled “Heading Home” was accepted into this prestigious show.”
Congratulations to Shannon! Her artwork has graced the covers of several issues of Western Horse Review, most notably our end of year Championship Editions.
I also have some good news to share from this gal. Photographer Kim Taylor.
We\’ve had the honor of having Kim\’s unique and cowgirl poetic photography gracing the cover of Western Horse Review on numerous occasions, most recently, her gorgeous shot of a spade bit on the cover of August.
A showing of her work begins August 21 and runs through September 21 at the Bluerock Gallery in Black Diamond, Alberta. The opening reception is this Saturday, August 21, from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Hope you can plan to attend either or both of these events!
