Contemporary Masters Show

Contemporary Masters, Artistic Eden III Show
I have been very fortunate to have been asked to submit work for the Contemporary Masters Show. This event is held at the Pasadena Museum of History located on the grounds of the beautiful Fenyes Mansion. The event is sponsored by PAGA. 
The show is an invitational show and the subject was anything located within the San Gabriel valley. Luckily I have been painting scenes from the Arroyo and Eaton Canyon so I entered 4 pieces. I received an email that 3 of my paintings had been juried into the show. These were 3 large paintings of mine so I'm going to have a heck of a time getting these down to Pasadena. The largest, with it's big 6" frame will have to go into the back of our truck because neither of our cars will hold, am I glad we have a truck! I'm very honored to have 3 of my pieces make it into the show and yaking about getting the work down there is just one of those annoyances any artist would put up with in getting into a show.   
One nice thing too is that I have been really putting my work into nice frames the last 3 or 4 years. I have made an effort to use better and better frames and getting into this show is one reason for that. It is really nice when you are notified that your work has been juried into a show and you don't have to go out and do the 100 yard sprint to dig up a frame befitting the venue. Whew!
And now the details...the show starts on Saturday, March 10th, 2012 and will run for 5 months.
The address is 470 W. Walnut Street, Pasadena, CA.
The work in the show is not for sale at the museum but if anyone is interested in purchasing info they may contact Jasminka at Gallery Gabrie.
