"Acoma Treasures" is the second painting that was previously shipped to the Kemp Art Center for the Mystery Art Fest. The reveal night is at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5th, 2015 at an artist-signing reception. I want to thank my new collectors for their participation in the art auction.  The Kemp Art Center hosts this auction annually in the Fall as a fund raiser to benefit the many programs and is a worthy cause.

"Desert Fire", Native American woman, abstract Native American painting, acrylic painting, by Vonnie Kohn, Texas artist

"Desert Fire"
8 x 10"
Acrylic on Canvas

Kemp Art Center in Wichita Falls, Texas hosts a Mystery Art Fest annually in the Fall. I am honored to be a participant in this great event this year. 'Desert Fire" is one of two entries. The collectors do not have knowledge of who painted these entries until the night of the "reveal." They bid on the items and wait for the next meeting (reception) at which time the artists sign their work. Both of my entries have sold..thank you!

The Reveal night is being held at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 5, 2015 at the Kemp Art Center. I am looking forward to meeting my new collector. I hope you can be a part of this worthy cause....

I have wanted to paint lavender fields for some time. I finally found the perfect place, thanks to Franklin, a late friend, who had traveled to Italy and shared this scene with me. Beautiful, isn't it? If interested, you may contact me at:

October News-Jurying the Bosque Art Association, Clifton,Tx

Clifton, Texas is the home of the Bosque Art Classic annually held in the late Spring. The Art Center is a large facility that houses the Arts, including the Classic, local shows, and theater productions. The community of local artists not only volunteer to keep the gallery running and maintain the gift shop, but also help with painting set designs for the theater productions. I was honored to jury the Bosque Art Association's art show in the upper galleries.

With me is Karen, a dedicated volunteer who gave me the initial tour of the Art Center. She is a talented portrait painter who fills the walls of her residence with family and friends.
(Never mind the "wink" in my left brother was taking pictures and moving his mouth with a joke at the same time...candid shots are not always flattering!)
No matter what is said, being a juror is not a cake walk. There were some difficult decisions to be made because there were so many potential winners, and only a few awards to be given. I think anyone who is a creative soul deserves reward! Hopefully, these awards will encourage others to reach for the prize next year..thank you Bosque Art Association for a wonderful day.
