"Wild & Free in Nevada" Painting to Support Charity in Australia

A Small World is an international exhibition of small works being held at Magpie Springs Gallery in South Australia.  Works submitted by overseas artists like myself  are a gift with any proceeds to  to be donated to the charity.

I'm delighted to be participating in this show being held this November through January.
The owner there, Avril Thomas is a very fine artist in her own right and has been a facebook friend for several years now. A few months ago, Avril asked all her painter friends if we'd like to participate in a small works show of post card sized work to help promote her beautiful venue and to raise money for charity. She has had an overwhelming response from over 200 artists from around the world.

I've just completed my piece. A watercolor of some of our wild Nevada horses, and I've titled it "Wild & Free in Nevada" as a declaration that I hope we will always have wild horses here in the west. Fun fact: Did you know that Nevada has more wild horses than any other state in the USA? We do love our wild horses here and work hard to protect and keep them free.

The show opens November 13th and runs through January 15th 2017 as this gallery is open for 3 days a week. The show will be accompanied by an online auction site so that people from any country may bid on the pieces in the show.  Its turning into a delightful collaborative effort.
I'll keep you posted on news as I get it as well as the links to the auction site.

Check it out, its sure to delight art lovers from around the world. And if you're in Australia, be sure to check out Magpie Springs. It looks to be a wonderful place.
