I will be at the opening of this exhibit in Maryland if you want to come out and see me. If you went to MICA, you might be interested to know that Victoria Ford, the model coordinator, is in the band Smooth Endings that will be playing the opening.

Towson, MD – The Towson Artists Group, a collection of talented professional and emerging artists, will present its first group show on Saturday, April 21 at the Towson Framing Gallery. The show will offer the public a chance to see and purchase high-quality yet affordable original paintings and drawings in a variety of media. Following the opening reception, the works will be available for viewing until May 19.
The Towson Artists Group is an open art collective that meets once a week. Organized in March of 2006 by Andy Holzopfel, the Group includes members from all over Maryland, including Baltimore and Annapolis. “I wanted to create a relaxed environment where anyone could spend time developing their art,” says Holzopfel. “From beginners to lifelong artists, everyone is welcome.” While the Group’s weekly sessions focus exclusively on the human form, the show will feature work covering a wide range of subjects.
Artists participating in the show include Holzopfel, Gretchen Anderson, Joanna Barnum, Rebecca Cason, David Diaz and Gil Jawetz. For a complete list of participating artists and their bios, as well as a gallery of work from the Group, please visit http://www.towsonartistsgroup.com .
The show will also feature live musical accompaniment from jazz band Smooth Endings as well as refreshments.

In other news, I e-mailed Craig Elliot about Aphrodisia II, since they haven’t updated their site since they posted the list of accepted artists. I had been keeping my eyes peeled to find out when the book was going on sale to the public so that I could let you guys know about it, but apparently it happened in February, and it’s now sold out. I didn’t know, since they never updated the site with the information. I still see it listed on Amazon.com as available “new” so maybe they have a few left, or maybe you can find it there used if you’re interested in owning a copy. There’s also a nice review of it by The Midwest Book Review: link
