Art of Conservation 2008

First post..hmm.. bit of a tricky one, how to kick off the blog and all that. Well, as luck would have it I've just had some good news art-wise, so this seems as good a place as any to start...

My oil painting "The Buzzard Rock" has been selected for inclusion in the Artists for Conservation Foundation inaugral exhibtion The Art of Conservation to be held at the Hiram Blauvelt Museum of Wildlife Art in New York in September. I've had my fingers crossed about this one for several months ever since I was selected for the AFC in January, so am very pleased and quite proud that a small piece of Bodmin Moor(where the painting is set) will be sailing across the pond to fly the flag for Cornish moorland-lovers everywhere! The pic will also be featured in the hardcover book to be published in conjunction with the exhibit, plus there is also the further possibilty of it being chosen for a year-long touring exhibit to be held at various venues across the United States in 2009.

For more details on the exhibition, and it's official beneficiary the Wildlife Conservation Society check out the AFC website here

Now all I need to do is get working on the frame, and a very large box to pack the thing in...
