Springville Museum of Art Spring Salon

First let me thank all the people who have left generous comments on my previous posts. It's especially fun to hear from people outside of the US. This blogging thing is a remarkable way to connect people. Thanks for the support. It is altogether motivating to hear from people who make and celebrate art.

It is time again for the annual Spring Salon at the Springville Museum of Art. For those who are not familiar with the show, it is the largest juried exhibition here in Utah. Many of the artists that enter this show are nationally recognized painters, sculptors, and photographers who are represented by galleries all over the world.

I am posting some of the pieces that will hang in this year's salon that are done by my painting friends and mentors. Each of these artists are people who have encouraged and supported me, and whom I
greatly admire.

The show will hang from April 27th to July 6th. These are only a few of the pieces. The show is insanely good. Get there.

I hear that your painting did really good in the show. Wicked awesome good if you catch my drift. I also like the portrait of you that Jeff did.

You are on fire! I need some of your talent to rub off on me. I am hoping that you decide to go for the art classes, if you do-I am definitely there. I want to draw like the Mark guy...that picture is just crazy. Hope your back is behaving. You are the art king, with a good spirit. Now go and prosper my friend. LOL!

Seriously Justin...you look like a serial killer in that painting.

It's always amazing to me to see all the talent there is hovering around Utah.
