Just an update on the Adams County Juried Art Exhibition: I missed the opening due to a family event but was awarded the Dick Blick Award! That means I now have a $125 gift certificate that I can blow frivolously on art supplies 🙂 I would like to send a special thanks for my husband Kurt who encouraged me to enter the show.
An update! Wonders never cease! Yes yes you have heard it all before from me. So lets see…My excuse(s) this time is that I (1.) Got a part-time gig in the Gettysburg College Theatre Department managing and making the costumes in addition to my previous scenic painting contract work with them, (2.) I have become obsessed with writing, mast particularly a series of novels that have grown out of my experiences with NANOWRIMO, and (3.) my boys do not nap anymore, thereby eliminating all the time I used to have to get work done.
All that being said I have managed to get myself into a juried art show! Our trusty local Adams County Art Council sponsors this show every year at the Schmucker Gallery on Gettysburg College Campus. I have been meaning to enter into it for some time but the timing always seemed to escape me. Anywho I finally applied and got accepted. If you happen to be in Gettysburg June 3-24th you will be able to view the show at the Schmucker Art Gallery Tues-Sun 10-4. My included works will be two paintings that I completed while we were living in the Netherlands. Post Card for the show and my entries:
Yes it has been a whole year since I have posted some news. Yikes! For half of that time I have perfectly good excuse- we were in the Netherlands for my husbands sabbatical. We had an absolutely lovely time. If you are interested in reading about our adventures you can check out the blog I kept while we were there: julsbuehrer.blogspot.com
I got a little painting done while we were away. One of the reasons I have waited so long to update this website was that I was planning on taking some pictures of some of what I did after I got around to mounting and framing them. But life has happened and they remained rolled up on the canvas paper in which they were painted. I’m sure I will get around to it this summer and have them ready to show you. I also painted a set of klompen (dutch wooden shoes) for each member of my family:
Since our return in December I have been busy chasing after my two boys, painting two sets for the Gettysburg College Theatre Department, and finishing my NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) novel. For those of you not familiar with NaNoWriMo it happens in November so I am a little behind on it but I am determined to finish it. Unfortunately it means I have been trading all my painting time for writing time but I expect to get back to it soon
