My classical painting "First Light" began the 2nd leg of the highly successful and critically acclaimed "Masterworks Tour" sponsored by the International Guild of Realism. The exhibition consists of 70 artworks by 65 artists from around the globe selected by a jury-of-peers shaped by input from the project's tour director David Wagner. The Guild features works by some of the best artists practicing all forms and styles of realism today. The first stop of the tour was the R.W. Norton Museum and Gallery in Shreveport, LA which recently concluded on July 26. The tour continues with the next exhibit at the prestigious Appleton Museum of Art in Ocala Florida from Sept 5th through Nov 1. The Masterworks Tour was recently featured in the July edition of On View magazine. The third leg of the tour will travel to Albany Museum of Art in Albany Georgia from Feb 6th through June 11th. All exhibits are open to the public.
was thrilled to find out today that for the 2nd time in less than a year one of my new drawings "Emerging Young Artist" will be published in an upcoming new book by North Light Books titled "Strokes of Genius 8". The well know and critically acclaimed series Strokes of Genius has highlighted some of the finest drawings from artists the world over. This is my 2nd work to be published in a hard cover book as my drawing "Mrs Crye" was featured in last December's release of "Art Journey; Portraits and Figures". Publication dates and details will follow as I am updated from North Light Books.
I would like to invite everyone to the opening night event of the annual Arkansas League of Artists art show held this year at Cantrell Gallery.

The awards ceremony will be from 5:30 to 6:00 pm on Friday, September 11th followed by the opening night reception from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. The exhibit represents many of the finest artists in Arkansas and was open to both members and non-members of the ALA.
