He has his finger on the pulse of what’s happening in the arts statewide, and is very knowledgeable about galleries, shows, funding sources, and arts organizations. He loves art and artists, and his enthusiasm and positive spirit are contagious. He’ll inspire you to ramp up your career…and at the very least, put a smile on your face!

The subject can be interpreted color-wise (a single large spot of blue or a completely blue image, or any piece using the color), or via a figurative scene (a jazz band, or someone in pensive repose). Deadline to enter is midnight Wednesday June 15, 2016.
This juried show is open to Arlington Artists Alliance members only.
