One of Charles' most recent paintings, the beautifully serene "Of Wood and Roses", has been accepted into the upcoming Oil Painters of America 17th National Exhibition of Traditional Oils!
Charles' painting will be hanging in great company. Approximately 200 pieces were juried into the show, created by some of the best oil painters in the country, including 17 Master Signature Members of the OPA.
The exhibition will be held at the Dana Gallery in Missoula, Montana from May 2 to June 14, 2008. The OPA's annual members' meeting is scheduled to coincide with opening weekend - 4 days of programming are planned with demonstrations, lectures and paint-outs. More info is available on their website.
Charles' still life painting "Gold Elephant" was, this past December, included in the OPA's 2007 Eastern Regional Exhibition at the Weatherburn Gallery in Naples, Florida. This is his first OPA National Exhibition.
