Opening Reception: Friday August 7th, 6:00-9:00 pm
Just because August is as hot, tired, and dried out as tumbleweed doesn’t mean the Art Scene has to be! Come join us for yet another fun and fanciful August Extravaganza at Gallery C!! 2015’s exhibition Rawhides and Rodeo Queens : The Art of the Wild West promises to be the showiest extravaganza yet in the continuum of August themed exhibition. Many of our Gallery C artists plus special guest artists have taken on the theme of our American heritage and unique cowboy culture. We present a collection that is whimsical, nostalgic, breathtaking, and maybe a tad raunchy!
Join us at the Opening Reception and meet our rawhides, rodeo queens, barmaids, rustlers and varmints. Your admission ticket ($5.00) gains you entry to the party, drinks at the saloon, and a vote in the People’s Choice Award.
This year, every person who attends the opening is going to help “Send an Artist to Eldorado.” At the end of the evening, we will tally the ballots and announce the most popular artist of the night. That artist will receive a trip to Eldorado, New Mexico, to relax and make art at the Radiant Light Art Studio, just outside of Santa Fe. The prize package includes air fare and lodging, and gives a deserving artist a week in an inspiring setting to make their magic!
Thanks to our sponsors Rick Perales at SEABOARD CAFE and Belinda Berse at Radiant Light Art Studio!
