ARTeNews – October 2017

A Year From Now.

 

A year from now, I will be recovering from our 8th Artisan Materials Expo at Buffalo Thunder…in fact…I probably will be taking a needed vacation somewhere.

The last Expo event attracted over 3000 artists. The positive art energy at this event is unbelievable, and this one will be even larger and features 80 manufacturer booths of deeply discounted art materials, free demos and 120 three-hour and six-hour workshops. Even though the event is a year off…we are working everyday organizing the workshops from the 56 instructors, and lining up the roster of manufacturers. We are working to get all the 120 workshops up on ExpoArtisan.com by January 1st of 2018. We are also excited about the two national encaustic organizations holding their symposium again and offering a wide selection of encaustic classes.

We started this back in 2000 at the old Sweeney Convention Center featuring 40 booths of manufacturers and about 60 workshops. It outgrew that facility and this will be our fourth one at the Buffalo Thunder facility. Mark the date of September 28th through 30th, 2018…come be part of the fun and get your art spirit energized!

Namaste, Ron

Artist of the Month

George Rivera

“George Rivera is the ex-Governor of the Pojoaque Pueblo north of Santa Fe, but is now devoting himself full-time to his art. He invited us over to his beautiful studio on the top of a mountain north of town and gave us a tour of what he is up to…take a look!”  ~ Ron Whitmore
