The exhibition opens May 16 and runs through August 20, with the opening reception on May 18 from 5 to 7 p.m. At 120,000 square feet, the Booth Western Art Museum is the largest museum in the U.S. dedicated to Western art and is also a Smithsonian affiliate. It's located just north of Atlanta at 501 Museum Dr, Cartersville GA 30120. For info call 770-387-1300.
Also, I'll be one of 50 artists participating in next month's ARTucker, a marketplace celebrating local artists and their hand made creations on Saturday, May 6. This twice-yearly event is held indoors at the Tucker (GA) Recreation Center. Hours are 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. and admission is free. I'll be showing my hand painted jewelry and original art greeting cards. I'll also be debuting my new line of clip on earrings at ARTucker. (These are NOT your grandma's clip ons! They're fun and funky with a Boho twist. Each pair is one-of-a-kind and just right for pairing with casual wear. I've included a photo of one pair below.) So if you're in the metro Atlanta area, come to ARTucker on May 6 and join in the fun! Tucker Recreation Center, 4898 LaVista Rd., Tucker GA 30084.
