The spring season has been great so far. Managed to avoid all but a small number of rain-out days – which is amazing for a spring outdoor show schedule.
Last weekend was the Cottonwood Arts Festival. This show gets better every year and the patron turnout this spring was fantastic. Appreciate everyone who dropped by and for the great response to my work.
Coming up: Arts for All festival in Lawton, Oklahoma. If you are in the area, drop by and introduce yourself. This is always a fun show. The Lawton area continues to grow and evolve. There are a lot of fun new restaurants and other venues – not to mention the beautiful mountain scenery. This is Mother’s Day weekend – so you have a terrific opportunity to find something unique for her and to spend some quality time enjoying the arts together!
I get back from Arts for All and have two days to catch my breath and then off to Tulsa for Mayfest. Hoping for good weather and a great turnout. This show has lots of terrific work and the area where the show is held is fun.
See you on the road!
It has been awhile since I have added a post to the site. First, some updates on my health since the accident. I really appreciate all the kind words, thoughts, and prayers from my artist friends and customers over the past year. I’m doing reasonably well, all things considered. My strength is back and apart from the damage to my jaw and teeth, and a bit of heart arrhythmia, I don’t seem to have any other lingering issues. That’s a miracle in our book and we’ll take it!
The spring shows are starting to line out and I will be adding some now – with more to come as I receive the jury outcomes. I’m looking forward to heading back to Houston for my first spring show. Not sure what to expect after all the terrible things that area has gone through. The people there are so resilient though and I’m hoping that spring time will bring them out to enjoy the festival. Will be great if the weather will cooperate and let everyone have a relaxed time.
My wife is going to get back to adding more prints on the website over the next week or so. I hope that you will visit the listings and share my site with others. I don’t have a lot of viewers at this time and any help spreading the word that I’m online will be appreciated!
It’s time for the annual Christmas Show ( http://www.randybrodnax.com/christmas_show.html ), December 1, 2, and 3. This show is held at the Sons of Hermann Hall, 3414 Elm Street, in Dallas. If you have never been, make this the first year of an annual tradition. There are terrific arts, fine crafts, and jewelry for sale – just in time for the holidays.
This will be my final show for the year and I have several new originals. I hope that I see you there but, if not, I wish you and those you love a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Get ready for some awesome music and incredible arts and crafts at the Smoky Hill River Festival in Salina, Kansas. Visit www.riverfestival.com/ for show details. I’m heading that way on Thursday and hoping for great weather and a solid turnout of high energy visitors. The show runs from June 8th to the 11th, with Festival Gates opening at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, gates open at 10:00 a.m., and entertainment begins at 11:00 a.m.
I always enjoy this show. It has a family-friendly vibe, with enough range in art and entertainment for every age group. I will have a number of my prints in the kids area, and really enjoy when young people and their parents drop by to talk about the piece they have chosen.
Hope to see you there!
I am incredibly grateful to be back in the swing of the Spring Shows! Completed two in the Houston area these past two months (Houston Bayou and The Woodlands). I’m preparing now for the Oklahoma City Arts Festival. I’ve been fortunate to be a participant in this show for most of my career as an artist. It is a marathon to get through physically, but always such a delight in terms of customer interaction, seeing artist friends, and the terrific music and art at the show.
If you are in the Oklahoma City area starting Tuesday the 24th of April and going through that next Sunday, please swing by and say hello. I have a number of new originals that I’m excited to display.
I’ll be sharing the rest of my schedule in a future post. But for now, back to the drawing table – literally!
