Heading to the beach for the weekend. More later...

Wanna go to a DC opening tomorrow?

My good friend José Ruiz has a new installation (Descendents of Ascension) from June 2 through July 7, 2007 with an opening reception, Saturday June 2, 6:30 - 8:30 pm at DC's G Fine Art. The opening also features Lisa Marie Thalhammer and Vesna Pavlovic.

I know a major DC area (soon moving) ubercollector who has over thirty Jose Ruiz originals in his collection. Ruiz was also the first ever winner of the Trawick "Young Artist" award a few years ago.

Grants for Artists

Deadline: June 30, 2007

The George Sugarman Foundation offers annual grants to painters and sculptors who are engaged in creating new works of fine art, whose work shows promise, and who are in need of financial assistance. Grants awarded in 2006 ranged from $500 to $3,600, with the vast majority being in the $1,000 range.
