Well, it's almost 2009--a new year, and a new beginning for a lot of things and a lot of people. The new beginning for The Art Stand Gallery's new blog will be an introduction of all the artists, each one in a daily post. Since I know myself best, obviously, I will start with my own in the next entry. For now, hope you all had a Merry Christmas and will have a Happy New Year's Eve, New Year's Day--and new year in 2009!
Today's image is a quickly taken photo, in bad light, of our Art Stand Gallery poster, done for the Blossom Trail celebration 2 years ago. Copies of the poster are available year round at the Art Stand for $7.50. Many of our artists have been participants in the Blossom Trail poster contest many times, but Deanna Bristow has won the contest more than once! We are very proud of the accomplishments of all of our artists--they have won many placements (including Best of Show!) at Alliance of California Artists shows, the Big Fresno Fair, the Madera Arts Council Ag Show, Society of Western Artists shows, Clovis Art Guild events and many other shows and competitions around the valley, the state, and the nation! We congratulate them all and encourage them to keep creating and showing their art.
