I will have artwork included again in this year’s 12 x 12 art fundraiser for the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition.

From their website:

A one-night only event, the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition’s 12×12 Art Fundraiser combines artwork by 150 of Oklahoma’s finest artists with local restaurants and live music to create an unforgettable night. To be held on Saturday, October 1, 7:00 pm at 50 Penn Place, 1900 NW Expressway in OKC, the event supports the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition’s (OVAC) programs that enable the success of artists across the state of Oklahoma.

I had a great weekend making monoprints in the [Press] at Untitled printmaking studio.  This is the third year I have participated in this wonderful printmaking event.  The art reception is Friday, September 16th from 5-8pm with a silent auction of all of the prints and proceeds going to the [Press].

From their website:

[Artspace] at Untitled is pleased to present the Third Annual Untitled Monothon which will open with a reception and silent auction September 16 from 5 – 8pm and will be on view through October 1. The Monothon is a juried exhibition of monoprints by 33 artists selected by a panel of jurors to participate in a marathon of printmaking in the [Press] at Untitled. Each selected artist had two days to create up to two monoprints. Out of the two monoprints, the jurors chose one print to be offered for sale in the silent auction, the proceeds going toward [Press] at Untitled programming.

The Untitled Monothon will be open to the public Tues – Fri: 10am – 5pm and Sat: 10am – 4pm, Sept 16 through Oct 1. The Opening Reception & Silent Auction will be on Friday, Sept 16 from 5-8pm. Admission is free.

The Sketchbook Project 2011 by art house co-op will be travelling to Austin this weekend during SXSW. I have a sketchbook that will be on display along with almost 10,000 other artists from across the world. After Austin the sketchbooks will travel to Portland, ME; Atlanta, GA; Washington, DC; Seattle, WA; San Francisco, CA; Chicago, IL; and then Winterpark, FL. After finishing their tour the sketchbooks will become part of the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Art Library where visitors can check out the books for close inspection. I am happy to be a part of this wonderfully creative art tour!
