I recently released the call for the Packard Group National Exhibition for 2021, and I am looking forward to curating the artwork on my website and creating the drive-in movie art reception. I will begin accepting submissions on February 15th, but the deadline is March 15th. Visit the "Art Calls" section on my website for details and how to submit your work to this national art for free.
I am extremely excited to announce that I am a recipient of a grant from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation! This prestigious honor will help me create new brodalisque paintings in the upcoming year.
Brodalisque with Black Trousers is part of the Open Door XVI exhibition at Rosalux Gallery in Minneapolis, MN. Artist Russ White juried the exhibition, and my oil on canvas painting is one of 36 selected works of art. The entire exhibition is online at the Rosalux website, and there is a book.
Aaron Packard and I discuss the importance of failure as a step in the learning process on the Klaire and Aaron Show. We also confirm that art is hard, but it's okay.
Aaron C. Packard created an awesome 360 photo of my studio. You can can scroll and zoom to see some of my Brodalisque paintings, oil portraits, Domestic Sarcasm dresses, and a Thunderdomesticity dress. If you're using a mobile device, rotate it horizontally for the best view.
