Chevy Chase Art Fair Cancelled

This year this outdoor art fair organizer had been planning to conduct an inaugural art fair in Chevy Chase... but:
Greetings Applicants,

Thank you for your recent submission to The Chevy Chase Art Festival that was scheduled to take place on September 21st & 22nd, 2013. HAE has a full show ready to go however, we are not receiving the support and backing that we require from the venue in order to make this a successful first year show. Therefore, we are moving the show to Legacy Village in Cleveland, Ohio. This is a very successful, well-established location in which we have been producing "Art in the Village” for the past 23 years in June. If you are interested in applying for this show, you may do so through zapp.

We will gladly refund your application fee or if you are an active artist with us, we can credit your account.  Please email with your response.  We appreciate receiving your response in writing no later than July 1st, 2013.

Thank You.

A little gray

Well actually... it's a lot of grey... or is it "gray"?

The last time that I had a beard it was all black.

So this latest one, after a few years in between, has a little grey/gray. 

People keep asking me why are you going a beard in the summer?

Who knows? Oy Gevault!

Beards have a way of deciding when they want to come out...

I've got a feeling that this one will not last very long as no one but me and Little Junes seems to like it...

Cough, cough...

For Marylands artists

The Maryland State Arts Council’s competitive Individual Artists Award (IAA) recognizes the value of artists and their work to the cultural vitality of Maryland. The Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation administers awards of $1,000, $3,000 or $6,000, which are recommended by an out-of-state jury that reviews unidentified submissions solely on the basis of artistic merit.

The IAA Program reviews a total of 18 artistic disciplines, which are separated into three competition groups that are awarded once every three years.


The 2014 Individual Artist Award is open to applications with a deadline of Friday, July 26, 2013. This year, the award is open to artists practicing within these artistic disciplines:

Looking for a Art Restorer

I have a collector friend who is in desperate need of a qualified art restorer to restore a photo which has been attacked by mold from the verso.

Both art conservators that I've used in the past have moved to Florida and this lady would rather deal with someone local... send me an email if you readers recommend someone...
