Theme Division Entries

Take a look at the slide show to the right and see if you can guess which of these great pieces of art will be unveiled at the reception on March 3rd... Post a comment on your favorite painting to let the artist know you care! Have fun, then mark your calendar for March 3 & 4 for a chance to meet the artists and see the real paintings.  They are always so much better in person! Come see for yourself..

Theme Division entries for Ironstone's 15th Annual Spring Obsession Art Show have been selected and will be arriving this weekend. Although the exhibit doesn't open until March 3rd, the selection of the winner of the Theme Division has to happen quite early to ensure the winning poster makes its appearance at the Artist Reception/Food Wine Pairing event, Saturday afternoon, March 3rd.

Call to Artist Open Division Entries Due

This weekend is a big weekend for us here at Ironstone. All the accepted Theme Division paintings will be arriving, hand delivered by the artists themselves.

We are promised a clear crisp sunny day here in the foothills. No better time to deliver these outstanding paintings providing a wonderful weekend day trip or for some an even better weekend get away.  I have received notice from at least one artist that is planning on taking advantage of the weather to set up an easel for a day of relaxed plein air painting somewhere on Ironstone's beautiful grounds.

Make a visit yourself to possibly meet some of the artists in the Tasting Room or search out those that might be painting out and about.

OPEN Division entries are due Friday, Feb. 3rd.  That is just around the corner, so don't waist any more time! It is a wonderful opportunity to get your name & paintings out in front of the buying customers.  You may download the entry forms from the blog (see page above) or you may email for a copy to be emailed to you.

The Spring Obsession Event opens March 3rd & 4th. Mark you calendars! It is a fun weekend.
