Birds in Art & Oil Painters of America Western Regional Opening Weekends

This weekend, Birds in Art at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau Wisconsin opens and continues until November 10th. If you like birds, this show will thrill you. Artists from around the world have had their paintings, sculpture, and carvings selected for this prestigous exhibition. Not only will many of us attend the opening (including an artist friend of mine from Japan, Haruki Koizumi), but visitors will "flock" from all over for the Grand Opening. All of Wausau will be very birdy for this "Artrageous" weekend.
You can see my selected painting, Easter Parade, on my blog post of May 9th.

Also opening this weekend is the Western Regional Oil Painter's of America show. The top 100 entries from members of the Oil Painters of America western 1/2 of the country will be on display and available for purchase at the Southwind Art Gallery in Topeka, KS. The show will continue until October 26th.
My selected painting is High Seas which was inspired from my trip across the Drake Passage to Antarctica. With 48 foot seas it was a trip to remember!
