National Juried Exhibition of 2018
Here is my entry for this years exhibition. It's titled "The Honey Bees' Immeasurable Importance To Mankind". Mixed media, 2017, Size: 29.5" x 31.5", Watercolor, Ink, Oil Paint, Acrylic and Wax on 500 lb. Arches Watercolor Paper (Details).
I again decided to use my favorite model, my wife, who is wearing the brightly colored turquoise socks. I placed the beekeepers in an unusual location to emphasize the vastness of the worldwide problem of colony collapse disorder. My wife and I enjoy working and watching our own apiary on the Cumberland Plateau.
The dates for the National Juried Exhibition are February 2-23, 2018 with a public reception on “First Friday”, February 2, from 5:00-9:00 PM and awards at 6:00 PM at the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville. The juror plans to be present. We hope you will join us! Throughout the rest of the month, exhibition hours are Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
