[singlepic id=279 w=320 h=420 float=left] Over the weekend I was asked to participate in the Art Spirit Gallery's 11th Annual Small Artworks Invitational this coming December. I realize this is extra-advance notice, but I wanted to mention it because I have always loved the gallery. And, small work definitely fits with the theme of the moment: after spending Monday matting and packaging a basketful of miniature pastels, yesterday I framed a whole stack of small works in anticipation of upcoming shows, including Cathedral Study, left. Back to the original topic, the Art Spirit Gallery is a beautiful contemporary art gallery in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, a resort town about half an hour from where I live. The gallery represents a who's-who list of the most respected artists in the area, so I am honored to have some work there if even just for one group show. The 11th Annual Small Artworks Invitational runs from December 4th through the 31st, 2009. The Art Spirit Gallery is located at 415 Sherman Avenue, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
