|Community Spectrum 14×20 watercolor by Rachael Shores|
I am so excited to share with you that Community Spectrum has been selected as part of a show at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee. This will be the first time I’ve had art displayed in Tennessee, well, unless there is something along the Appalachian Trail that I forgot about.
Presented by Lipscomb University Department of Art and Evergreen Ministries, in conjunction with the Thomas H. Olbricht Christian Scholars’ Conference sent out a call to artists – through Zapow – for their Christian Scholars Conference this year’s theme is “Reconciliation”. The call for art submissions was: “. . .seeking works that explore the role of art making as it pertains to therapy and healing.” It was nice to be able to put my faith into the description of this painting. Art will be on display at the John C. Hutcheson Gallery. So if you’re in Nashville please check it out and take pictures for me :D.
I just got back from Women Spirit in time to learn about this news and now I am scrambling to get this framed and mailed out. They want this by June 2, they don’t give much time for dilly-dallying. I submitted 3 pieces for this show and luckily they selected the only original that I have on hand. Also, this painting is very dear to me, it’s propped up along the wall as I write this and now I finally have a legitimate excuse to get it properly framed as it deserves. Since it’s so special to me I will be getting a beautiful job done at the The Print Shop at Univeristy Mall in Chapel Hill. I LOVE these people. I highly recommend this place as they have an eye for capturing art, they really know their products and I got to watch months ago as two of my pieces were matched with frames that made them dazzle. It was amazing. In fact, I still haven’t seen the finished product. I’ll have to get on that. The Print Shop has been wonderful on the phone with me as they work out how to get this all done. They are really putting in the effort to get this framed in time to mail it out.Maybe if I promote them enough they’ll one day give me a discount on their framing. I love my pieces so much and I want to see them dressed in their best. Wish me lots of positive exposure, everybody!
For the month that this show is up, I will offer a sale on these prints to celebrate my painting and to cover these new expenses while Community Spectrum gets it’s moment in the spotlight. If you would like to dabble in some philanthropy for the arts please visit Etsy and make a purchase or share the info of this beautiful print with its centering message. It makes a great gift! Thank you!
