I spent this weekend at Campbell Station Park for Art in the Park, creating plein aire art pieces and photographs. They will be shown at the opening reception on Friday, May 9, 7 PM at 11483 Parkside Drive (inside Turkey Creek next to Men's Warehouse). I'll be exhibiting four brand new watercolors and photographs for sale, as well as oldies-but-goodies Carefully Composed & Microcosm.
My next show will be Alchemy: The Magic of Art and Flowers, on Friday, May 16 from 1 -4 and Saturday, May 17 from 10-4 at the Farragut Town Hall, 11408 Municipal Center Drive. Key to the Soul will be featured as a pairing with a floral arrangement reflecting the piece, and The Art of Gardening and Ave Maria will also be displayed.
These shows are free and open to the public, so please come by and support your local artists (including me)!
Next Friday, April 4, is my First Friday show at New South Collective on Gay Street. This will also coincide with the Dogwood Arts Festival's Art on the Block, so there are a TON of reasons to be downtown that Friday. You can join the event on my Facebook page by clicking the picture above, and if you do stop by from 6-9, there will be food, drink and tons of awesome art to buy, from prints and paintings to totes and trading cards. You'll also be entered to win an Elizabeth Kidder: Illustrator Swag Bag, which will include postcards, buttons, prints and a signed copy of Jannah Station: A Soft Murder. The winner will be chosen at random at the show, so you must be present to win. You can check out a list of the pieces and formats that will be available at the show on my First Friday page. Hope to see you all there!
With all the show and novel prep, I've (ironically) had to draw back on my artwork. But I couldn't resist sketching out this little guy - a pangolin, the cutest armored mammal since the armadillo. The watercolor and ink is a welcome return after all my digital work, so I'll try to do more as the weeks go on, no matter how busy I am.
Old Sins, the publishing company that puts out "Jannah Station," and Elizabeth Kidder: Illustrator will be at Marble City Comicon April 11-13, with our own cool booth for you to come by and check out. We'll have lots of cool artwork from both "Jannah Station" and my latest upcoming graphic novel, "Despina" as well as personal work, including the ever-popular "Reading is Sexy" tote bags, which will come in handy for carrying all your con swag. Be sure to buy your tickets now and come check us out!
