Ava and I would like to personally invite you to show paintings of plants, trees, birds or animals of the Coos County area in the up-coming hospital show here in Bandon.
We really want to feature paintings that were started plein air, but certainly they could have been finished in the studio with drawing, painting, or collage.
Perhaps you were part of the 30 Artists/30 Parks that SL Donaldson coordinated in 2011, those are the types of paintings that would be perfect for this—especially if they featured myrtle trees, Douglas firs, alder, wild flowers, etc. Perhaps you take your own bird or animal photos and create paintings from those? Consider joining this show that celebrates these natural treasures of the local area.
Please bring 1-3 paintings ready to hang to the Bandon hospital on Wednesday, April 8th at 2 p.m.
Attached is the official CTA with the entry form. We’ll be hanging work from the local artists along with school children’s paintings of the area.
The reception that everyone is invited to is on Sunday, April 12th from 1-3 p.m. See you there for music and refreshments!
Thanks so much,
Ava Richey and Susan Lehman : )
