I know that Knight’s softly atmospheric pastoral scenes were crafted to be appealing to a certain sensibility, and I’m all-in on that.

  1. Liz Long Gallery at Chicago Urban Art Retreat Center in Chicago, Illinois wants to show your art! Our April 2014 exhibit, features artists from other states and other countries- it is national and international in scope; is looking for some great artists in far-away places. If you can get your art to and from the gallery, pay for your own costs, and make your own arrangements, get it to the gallery on time; you might be right for the art show. We want good art, will consider all media, size is limited to 32″ in any direction including the frame! 1. send images of your art to curator now via email 2. be prepared to get your art to the gallery in April 2014 3. be prepared to arrange to get your art back from the gallery at end of May 2014.

    The curator will respond right away to your images and whether we can use your art in the show. It is free to apply and free to be included in the show. However, all costs associated with transporting your art is up to you. We are especially interested in showing art by outsider (self taught artists) artists and art about social justice issues. However, we will consider other art.
    Check out our website for more details.

    What a beautifully plotted and framed portrait–and by framed, I mean the framing of the figure by the sheep, the slant of the shore and water, the weeds in the foreground, the attitude of the head and hands…really a delight. Thanks for featuring it.
