Ironstone Spring Obsession Art Show Theme Division now in!

 It's official!  The 2011 Theme Division of Ironstone's 14th Annual Spring Obsession Art Show is spectacular!  The entries are in and originals beginning to arrive. I love this time of year! Love the art, love the artists and love the excitment building for the big weekend March 5 & 6. If you have not participated or come out to see this event, you really must give it a shot!  The artists are here with art in action, presentations and so much more... Watercolorist Carolyn Macpherson will be giving a presentation on "pouring a watercolor background" at 10:30 AM on Sunday, March 6th. .  For those of you not familiar with watercolors, this is a difficult but beautiful effect to achieve with this tempermental medium.  Carolyn is a master.   I will have a slide show of the entries for you to browse in the next day or two.  Take a look and try to guess which one will be unveiled as the 2011, Series #14 Ironstone Obsession Poster on Saturday, March 5th at the Reception!  By the way, this event is open to the public for only $20.00.  With food & wine pairing stations around the Alhambra Music Room, live music and artists, it is an event not to miss.  Mark your calendars and keep an eye out here for updates on the artists and the art.
The images you see here belong to Artists Judith Morgan, Tracy Knopf and Terry Richardson.
