0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 79 Gallery

The weather’s been great this week.

Too great, apparently. Only 3 readers submitted art for our online gallery.

So here’s an idea: Create work that celebrates the fall season!

Whatever your age and level of experience — professional or amateur, young or old — this feature is open to everyone.

All genres and styles are encouraged too. Watercolors, oils, charcoal, pen-and-ink, acrylics, lithographs, macramé, jewelry, sculpture, decoupage (and now needlepoint) — whatever you’ve got, email it to dwoog@optonline.net. Share your work with the world!

Woo-hoo!

This week, our online gallery features 4 new artists.

Come on, everyone else! Join the fun. Watercolors, oils, charcoal, pen-and-ink, acrylics, lithographs, macramé, jewelry, sculpture, decoupage — whatever you’ve got, send it in.

“Mama’s Home.” Artist Sabra Gallo says: “On a family vacation to Costa Rica several years ago, we had a fantastic late night excursion to watch sea turtles come ashore and lay eggs. Truly magnificent creatures, and no photos (or flashlights) were allowed, so they were as undisturbed as possible. I made this mosaic to represent the images I will forever have in my mind’s eye.”

We are particularly interested in student work, and art from readers who have not submitted before.
