Tonight was the opening banquet and reception for the 28th annual Robert and Peggy Sears Invitational Art Show on the campus of Dixie State University. The show features works by about 135 artists in all mediums and genres. My good friend Royden Card was the featured artist and speaker. His words were inspiring and uplifting to all of us. Following the banquet George Handrahan was named as the featured artist for next year and won the Best of Show purchase award. Painting purchases were made by draw as the Eccles Gallery on campus was flooded with buyers. I was pleased to have both of my paintings snapped up in the first few minutes by Janet Sparks. she purchased “On the Farm”and “Yorkshire Dales Morn.” The show remains on exhibit through March 29, 2015.
