I am very happy to announce that my work is now represented by Hillside Fine Art in Claremont, California.
I am the only watercolor artist in a gallery that is full of oil paintings. There are many big name artists of the California Art Club on the walls and I am quite honored to have my work exhibited with them! I hope I can do well; I have no idea, only time will tell!
I will have my first ever solo exhibition at Hillside in September! Very excited about that. Reception is scheduled for September 5, 2015. Details will follow. Please come on by if you’re in the area!
Congratulations Frank, looks like 2015 will be a very good year!
Thank you, Carmen…let’s hope it’ll be good for all of us!!
Congratulations on your first solo exhibition Frank! You most certainly deserve it.
Thanks, Carol…I hope there will be many more to come. I am just getting started!!
Congratulations, that’s awesome!
Thank you, Debbie. Hope all is well on your end!
Very glad for you and all watercolor artists to read your post. Both galleries and collectors need some education about the serious nature of contemporary watercolor for both purchase in homes and for investing. It’s not just a sketch medium anymore.
I wish you were right, but unfortunately, there are many galleries that don’t even take on watercolor painters. The reasoning is: nobody likes anything behind glass (or plexi). It hasn’t changed much in the last 200 years. Ironically, there are many people out there who love watercolor paintings, but I have found they are mostly wc painters themselves. Unless you do it you don’t appreciate it? I really don’t know…
Thanks for the visit!
congratulations, frank! a great start to the year for you!
thank you, Bob! Hope you guys had a fun time in California!!
