Hello everyone! I’m sorry it has been so quiet here. The holidays, life changes and business have kept me very busy. How about you?
I wanted to let you know about two exhibitions I’m in this February. The first is the 2011 CVG Show, a state-wide juried exhibition. The second is the 6th Annual Portland LOVE Show, which features an opening and closing party as opposed to a reserved reception. (Gotta love Portland!) You are welcome to come. Each show will feature one of my photographs from the “Toy Stories” series.
Find the press release from the CVG show and additional information about the LOVE show below. I hope to see you there!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOCAL ARTIST FEATURED IN STATE-WIDE ART EXHIBIT
Local artist Amy Buchheit of Vancouver, Washington has been accepted into the 2011 CVG Show, a state-wide juried art show held at the Collective Visions Gallery in Bremerton, WA. Her photograph titled “All the World’s a Stage” is one of 129 artworks chosen from over 700 works submitted by artists throughout Washington State by exhibition juror Dennis Peacock. Mr. Peacock is a sculptor and Professor emeritus from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville who is now based in Shelton, WA. Accepted artists will be competing for $6,000+ in cash prizes plus potential purchase awards and will be on display at CVG during the month of February.
The Collective Visions Gallery is located at 331 Pacific Avenue in downtown Bremerton and will be open 10 to 5 Tuesdays through Saturdays and 1 to 5 on Sundays during the month of February. The public is invited to vote on a $300 People’s Choice award February 1 through 5, including on the First Friday evening gallery walk, February 4.

The Love Show is in its 6th year and counting! At over 300 artworks, it is one of the largest shows in Portland. Each artist submits one piece that reflects some aspect of love: the good, the bad and the ugly. Held the weekend of (or before) Valentine’s Day, the opening reception is a huge party with food, music, vendors and LOTS of interesting people watching. The closing party is just as fun.
What other art exhibition do you know that has featured stilt walkers? Very unique, indeed.
For more information and to follow the Portland Love Show now and for years to come, go to http://portlandloveshow.com/. Note: In the video on the home page, my piece from last year’s show, “The Policy of Truth”, can be seen just behind the first speaker’s head. Can you spot it?
Now I’m off to Bremerton to drop off the work for the CVG show … time to make the three hour drive. Stay tuned for more posts soon!
