I-NTO Yellow and the $99.00 Show – Upcoming Exhibitions

Arts discussion, Introduction, Upcoming Exhibitions

Hello everyone and welcome to my little corner of the blogosphere!I hope you’ve all been having a fantastic summer so far and that it gets better everyday.

I’m here to announce two upcoming exhibitions where I’ll be participating with ConArtist Collective, where I am an Artist Member for those who didn’t know already. 😊 It’s been a heck of a ride as long as I’ve been in the arts and a notch higher, bigger, better, faster, stronger since being part of the Collective. The people here have been warm, welcoming and just like a huge family. I dare say I’m blessed twice to have two tribes! 


On with the art! 

The upcoming exhibitions I’m participating in, are:

1.  The $99.00 Show opens August 3rd. 2016 from 7-11 pm. Here the Artwork is up for an awesome $99.00 each- all of it! But don’t ever doubt quality and creativity will go into every one…ConArtist Collective knows well what the art loving public wants to see and have. Because we are impassioned people who work doing what we love in collectively putting on a show with camaraderie and peace at the helm, our work delights time and again- if I may say so myself.   😊✌🏼️💖

2. I-NTO Yellow opens August 17th. 2016 from 7-11 pm. For this event, the theme is Optimism and you guessed it- yellow is the chosen color. We don’t always select a color as part of the theme, yet there is a very special kind made exclusively by our Curating Artist for this event, -BKA- Uncle Riley. It’s called “I-NTO Yellow” and is produced in conjunction with Pantone. Yup! That Pantone! There’s a huge, amazing reason behind it which you’ll know all about at the event. I hope some of you in the area will consider joining us and bring a smile, warm hugs and salutations 😊             You’re welcome!

Please be sure to check both shows out at ConArtist NYC Gallery for closing events and last view dates. Opening nights are best for these, if you’re so compelled to bring home a masterpiece from one of the incredible artists participating- including my own. They tend to fly off the walls- literally on opening nights. 

Enjoy the sneak peeks before the events , which I hope you’ll enjoy in person. 

Thanks so much for joining me here, as well as, on Social Media and following along 😊🙏🏼

Until next time… Be resourceful and creative in all you love to do. Your future self will thank you for it!

Artworks Added To My Gallery of Paintings

Uncategorized

Hey there art lovers, family, friends and all of the above!

Now that I’ve updated information on my paintings, I invite you to have a look at the collection I will keep here, titled:

“Artworks Added to My Gallery of Paintings.”

It is with great love and passion, in which I make my artworks a real, tangible item to behold with just as much feeling as one can put into them.

Here you’ll find the most recent and earlier works, as well as, any I add as I create. Underneath each one you’ll see Title, Medium, Size, and Price. Further information on the description of each piece can be found on my website for Prints.

Please feel free to inquire about my Originals, Commissions and Special Orders. I am also available to answer any inquiries regarding Limited Editions.

I may be reached directly via email replying within a reasonable time of 48 hours or business phone number during hours listed.

Another alternative to starting your art collection or adding to an existing one, other than with Originals – is by learning of the great many affordable options I offer in Fine Art Prints, which may be purchased at: http://adrianajgarces.artistwebsites.com  Each can be ordered by various size, paper or canvas types, framed, unframed and in Greeting Cards. The images included in this post link directly to its corresponding Reprints Sale Page. Please remember to contact me directly for Originals and Limited Edition runs.

I hope you enjoy viewing some of the work I feel impassioned about creating and that you may return for updates. As an original piece of artwork may be fully appreciated up close, consider attending the exhibitions I participate in. Part of the excitement for me in exhibiting is the opportunity to meet art lovers from all walks of life and sharing how I arrived at creating any particular piece or project I have worked on. Feel free to say hello, enjoy the show and disconnect for a while!

Until next time…

Be well, spread Love and Thank You for your joining me here!

Managing An Artistic Challenge

Uncategorized

 

 

Recently, I was personally challenged in artistic capabilities by having preset limits on a themed exhibition. I rather enjoy having a theme to go by, whether for exhibition, juried competitions or other forms of participation. This particular event was named: “Decorate, Embellish, Adorn” and Curated by Artist Member, Aprajita Anand…an amazing Artist and super sweet individual herself!

The event was presented at ConArtist Gallery, of which I am a Member Artist since February 2014. Its requirements included:

  • specific size of 12″ x 12″
  • in black and white only
  • should reflect or express what you are passionate about

Seems easy enough, right? It was the exclusive use of Black and White for its color them, which presented a challenge for me. Yes, they truly are colors!  At first I thought: “How hard can this be? After all, I LOVE to draw using black on white with almost any medium!” Then it hit me…I wanted to attempt the project in Acrylics, using my own style of drawing-without erasing. All in all, it was my own self-imposed challenge, since I’d never accomplished it in the Acrylic medium. Yet, I’m proud to have overcome the ‘chronic eraser syndrome’ very long ago. Turns out, I enjoyed every moment creating my piece, entitled “Rapture – Wrap Sure.” My reflection on what I am passionate about is simply LOVE. You see, I strongly believe in Love of all kinds and that with Love we can accomplish anything GOOD we desire. It is in fact (to me), the key to LIFE.

I do hope you enjoy the image of “Rapture – Wrap Sure.” Up until now, it continues to gain in popularity as one of my most viewed and enjoyed pieces of original artwork across all of my social media networks. The original is available for purchase by contacting me here, or in selected prints here.

First exhibited in "Decorate, Embellish, Adorn," at ConArtist Gallery, NYC

Until next time, I wish you PEACE and LOVE 🙂
