Last night was the Portland Plein Air & Studio Painters reception at the Kingstad Gallery. This venue is great, the turn out of visitors was fabulous, and the catering delicious! And to my surprise, I won an Honorable Mention ribbon! I didn't expect any awards to be handed out, but when we gathered for a speech from Lora Fisher, out came the awards. Recipients of the awards are:
Best of Show: Celeste Bergin
First Place: Kitty Wallis
Second Place: Micheal Orwick
Third Place: Amanda Houston
Make the date to see this Plein Air show because it is really spectacular. The work will be up for an extended period of time until 12/6/08.
My next show is with the Paint Out Group this Thursday, October 2nd at Art Reach Gallery. Located at 1126 SW Park Ave. Portland. OR 97205. Hope to see you there!
