Two Paintings Accepted into AFAL 3rd Annual National Exhibition

We got the notice in the mail last week. Both "Melissa" and "Gold Elephant" have been accepted into the Atlanta Fine Arts League's 3rd Annual National Juried Exhibition "Observations."

From the more than 200 entries submitted, juror Ed Horlbeck only accepted a total of 45 pieces!

The opening reception and awards presentation will be held Friday, August 14 in Roswell, GA. Since he is a resident of the Atlanta area, Mr. Horlbeck plans to jury the awards in person and will be in attendance at the reception as well. We look forward to meeting him.

News from the Painter's Studio - Summer 2009

For a year now I've been writing and sending out a quarterly newsletter summing up and recapping all of Charles' artistic activities from the previous 3 months, but I've only recently made it into a linkable webpage that I can share outside of his mailing list.

So, here you go! The Summer 2009 issue of News from the Painter's Studio, available here on the blog for the first time.

New Works: "An Epic in Three Acts"

This involved and enigmatic new piece is the first of a group of paintings Charles plans to do involving multiple figures in complex compositions.

"An Epic in Three Acts" is currently hanging at the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art until September 12, 2009. At the exhibition's opening reception we heard various interpretations of the painting's narrative. What story do you think it's telling? (36 x 30, oil on canvas, 2008)
