Society of Gilders *GOT GOLD LEAF?*

Posted on April 19, 2017 at 4:26pm 11 Comments

Everyone familiar with me knows that I'm a picture frame designer, maker, carver, and gilder who makes frames exclusively for his wife's artworks. During 1999 I began studying picture frame history and soon discovered gilding in all its glory. I was lucky enough to have a friend who gave me the first 10 years of Picture Framing Magazine (1990-1999) wherein I discovered a treasure trove about frames, frame making, gilding, and the industry.

In 2004, I received a professional…

Space Coast Art Festival PRIZE WINNERS

Posted on December 2, 2015 at 9:28am 4 Comments

I did this show that happens Thanksgiving weekend many years ago, but quit it and a few others before it so that I could be home in Wyoming for Thanksgiving. Seeing the list of winners makes me wish I could still travel to Florida for two reasons: I see a lot of friends and a gobs of prize money! I haven't yet heard about sales, how the change of venue is progressing, and how the other show not too very far away on the same weekend …

Congratulations, GREG LITTLE!

Posted on November 11, 2015 at 10:00am 11 Comments

Greg might be unaware of his fame today, but I was just visiting the Collectors of Wood Art website HERE HERE HERE and discovered he's the featured artist on their home page. I don't know how often that feature changes, but it doesn't really matter all that much. What does matter is that Greg is a member of Collectors of Wood Art and that his work is being featured.

I'm a fan of that site and organization anyway and…

Nice meeting you Barrie. Thanks for telling me about the no Y. I so enjoyed looking at the booth photos. I'd love to get feedback about my booth. I'll have to figure out how to upload a photo here.  Thanks again, Joan

Thanks Barrie, It's a pleasure to be your friend and I truly hope to meet both you and your wife on the road at some point.  Most of my shows are not too far afield from my home in north/central PA.  It sounds like the south/east USA is your best market and this was alway inexplicably one of my worst.  Probably my restrained overall style of art, no matter the medium, is responsible.  I used to describe my sculpture booth presentation as the "booth that looks like nothing is in it".  It's THAT restrained and this impulse is always carried through anything I do as an artist,...or anything else for that matter.

Hi Barry,

I'm probably not going to do any shows this year. I'm dealing with health problems that prevent me from doing much traveling. I did just receive an invite to "Art on the Levee" in Ft. Benton, MT. It's really a nice show in conjuntion with their Fort Benton Days celebration - parade, rodeo, etc. The setting is in a nice park and show organizers were excellent and the crowds were motivated buyers.

In 2015 booth cost $75.00 for 3 days (last week of June). You can select your booth on the application form. Booths are 15 x 10'-15'. Most booths are under large shade trees but it can get breezy. Set up is real easy with artist parking close by.
