Dalton Arts Guild Membership Show Ends June 30th!

So if anyone was planning on going but wasn't sure how much time they had...go soon, you got a week.  Unfortunately I will not be able to check the show out myself, but I've heard that it was especially good this year.  Many great Berkshire artists involved.  It's important to support local arts, and the Berkshires are trying especially hard to keep culture growing.

Best in Show for December Maple!

I have been a member of the Dalton Arts Guild since I was in hight school.  They have always been extremely supportive of my artwork.  I got my first award for art from them, which was a 1st Place Student Award for a clay sculpture called "Cautious Tapir", that was 10 years ago.  Last Saturday I was awarded Best in Show for my "December Maple" painting.  This is my most satisfying award to date because of my feelings toward this piece.  It has become one of my favorite piece's that I have done so far.  Most especially because I feel I finally captured my lovely fiance's essence in a painting.  It is also very dear to me that they chose the painting of mine that most captures the Berkshire's they way I think of it.  It is a quite place and a solemn place.  Thank you again to the Dalton Arts Guild.  The show is in Miller's Art Supply at 205 West St, Pittsfield, MA 01201.  "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" is also on display and for sale.
