Earlier in the year I opened one of the best letters I have received, notifying me that I was accepted as an artist for one of the most prominent art shows in the West, the 24th annual Celebration of Fine Art in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The 10 week show features more than 40,000 square feet of working studios and works of art by 100 top-rated artists from throughout the country.
Mark your calendars because the show opens January 11 and is open daily from 10am to 6pm until March 23, 2014 and is located on the southwest corner of Hayden RD and the Loop 101 in North Scottsdale.
I should be in my studio just about every day. View and purchase my artwork, discuss photo workshops, and watch some of the free digital darkroom demos I will be presenting.
You can also follow Celebration of Fine Art on Facebook to stay up to date on show announcements.
Feel free to drop me a note if you are planning on coming to the show – I hope to see you there!
Here is the official press release:
