I'm happy to announce that I will be represented by the Windrush Gallery in Sedona, Arizona. I always planned to look for representation in the Sedona area, but this came about in an interesting and unexpected way.
A few weeks ago I was bringing home the paintings from the Sedona Art Center members show and ran into pastel/oil painter Michael Johnson. I had recently met and painted with Michael in Sedona, and he mentioned that he had some art in the Windrush. I had never heard of this gallery and only had a little time, so I planned to just run in and out of the gallery to take a look. Owner, John McCullough, was hanging a bunch of really nice works by Adelle Earnshaw and we got to talking.
I told John I was a friend of Michaels, that I was an artist and why I was in Sedona that day, but I said would call him someday and set up an appointment to see if he was interested in adding me to the gallery. I didn't want this to be an annoying cold call, especially when he was busy hanging a show. We traded business cards, and I said I'd contact him soon. As I was pulling out of the parking lot, John came out , flagged me down and said he might as well see what I had since I was there. He liked what he saw and asked me be a part of the gallery!
I had thought that getting involved in the Sedona Art Center would be great way to get involved in the Sedona art scene, but this was an unexpected turn of events. John wants the Windrush Gallery to specialize in plein air landscape painting and I'm excited to be included in the gallery!
