Last days of "For the Birds," and Grand Ave's artwork

ICED, Acrylic, 48 x 36 in., Cindy Schnackel
FOR THE BIRDS SHOW NEARLY OVER

April has been a fun month! It's been a wonderful opportunity to be in a two person show at R. Pela Contemporary Art. Scott Wolf is also showing there.  Our show comes down Sunday, so there is still time to see it by appointment.  Above is "Iced," a large acrylic palette knife painting, $1000.

It was great when, earlier this year, gallery owner Robrt Pela came to visit my studio and asked me if I'd like to do a bird themed show. Of course, I said 'Yes.'  I was pleased with his choice for the other artist, as I really enjoy Scott's bold style and humor.

If you're on Facebook, R. Pela gallery has a page there, and below is also the gallery's website.  Hope you'll give Robrt a call and set up a private viewing during what's left of this week!

GRAND AVENUE'S ARTIST-DECORATED PLANTERS

Some of my local friends who do mosaics are doing amazing mosaic work on concrete planters in central Phoenix, along Grand Avenue.  There are also artists doing paintings on some. This area has been getting a real sprucing up. Below are some links (that I believe are all public pages), so you can see what's going on there. There are good galleries, too, and restaurants.
