Bring on the gallery shows!















































I have good news! I won the award of excellence for my painting, "Cat on a Blue Stairway" at Burnsville's Art Fete. So I thought I would devote a blog post to all the gallery shows I've been involved in lately. And the ones that I will be doing soon. My first show of 2010, "Minnesota Made" just came to an end February 28 at the University of St. Thomas. It was a show I participated in with my fellow CBIGer's. I submitted, "Red Wings Over Red Wing" I've posted that piece on my blog before. Last Thursday, "Art Fete" opened at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center. The top photos are from that show. I also posted a photo of my friend Amy Vasterling's piece http://amycernyvasterling.blogspot.com/ Her work always has the cool factor of a real thinking artist. And she already sold her piece! The opening of Art Fete was a food and wine event. And the 85 artists and guests were hungry! It runs through May 1st. The last 2 photos are from the Minneapolis Institute of Art's, "Foot in the Door" show. Over 4,000 Minnesota artists participated in an overwhelming display. It runs February 18- June 13. I submitted, "Scared Dog" And the caption reads,"WOW. I've never seen so much dog-gone art!" To see more illustrated dogs please visit my website at http://www.sharonrwagner.com/ I have a show coming up April 9- June 20 at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts in Minneapolis. The theme will be, "Imagination, Exploration and Creativity" And I might be participating in a photography show at the Minneapolis Photo Center. http://www.mplsphotocenter.com/ If I'm not selected as an exhibitor my photos can be viewed online. I'll let you know!

How wonderful! And so well deserved, Sharon. I'm hoping that you will become well known enough so that I can say, "I knew her when..." (grins and smiles)
