Gina Quaranto and Blackbird Studios are having a year-end exhibit titled 'Dr. Seuss: A Tribute Show' which, of course, honors the work of the man, himself. An open call to artists was put out last month and I decided to enter a couple paintings. Seemed like a fun way to cap off a crazy, busy year.
I chose to do work based on two favorites, 'Horton Hears A Who' and 'Green Eggs & Ham.' Being on that dinosaur kick, obviously I had to find a way to include them. Imagine me squealing in the toy store when I found a dinosaur hatchling popping out of a green egg. I'm four.
'Green Eggs & Ham' - 8"x8" - oil on canvas
'Horton Hears A What?!?!' - 8"x8" - oil on canvas
This coming Friday, December 6th, is the opening reception at Blackbird Studios (1551 S. Commerce St, Las Vegas, NV 89102) from 6-9pm. Stop by if you are in the area! I can't wait to see the show hung. So many great pieces were at the gallery already when I dropped my work off last week.
The exhibit will run through January 24, 2014.
If you are interested in finding out more about the paintings above (pricing/availability/shipping), you may contact Gina directly via email or by calling the gallery at 702.782.0319
