Upcoming Art Show, Fire on the Water

Acrylic and pencil on wood. Abstract. Jane Pellicciotto Artworks, Portland, Oregon
Splishin’ and Splashin’ | Acrylic and pencil on wood. Dragon Boat Art Show submission. 8 x 8 (sold)

Portland is the city of roses, and so each June these flowers (and more) are celebrated via a number of activities, one of which is the Dragon Boat Race.

Portland artist Alea Bone created an art exhibition called “Fire on the Water” as a celebration of the dragon boat races. I’m honored to be one of the 75 invited artists to show a piece (a perk of being in the same art club). This art exhibition is an official Rose Festival event. You can get a sampling of the work on the Fire on the Water Facebook page.

This is my submission. I wanted to capture in an abstract way what I imagine dragon boat racing to feel like. This is acrylic and pencil on wood.

The opening reception is June 4 and the show will be up for one month.

Date: June 4 | Time: 5–8 pm | Location: Portland’5 Center for the Arts, 1111 SW Broadway, Hatfield Hall.

Update: I was happy to arrive to the opening reception and find that my painting sold. Thank you whoever you are!
