0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 93 Gallery

It never rains. But it pours.

Or, to put it in “06880” online art gallery terms: When the snow falls, lots of artists go to work.

Last week’s snowfall brought several submissions. So — for some reason — did non-weather subjects, including a trip to Tucson. We’ve got a full gallery this week: 14 works, ranging from nature to abstract, and from oil and charcoal to photography and wood carving.

Whatever your age and level of experience — professional or amateur, young or old — this gallery is open to you. In every medium.

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

Art should be inspired by, relevant to, or somehow, in some way, connected to our current lives. Student submissions of all ages are especially welcome. So are artists who have not submitted before.
