Multi Artist Exhibition at Lansing Art Gallery

During the month of March, Lansing Art Gallery is extending it's multi-artist show to the upstairs mezzanine gallery space.

I will be carting over a few large pieces and these framed ACEOs.
(I found these great frames through Jerry's Artarama - a delightful online art supplier.)

So come on out to the Lansing Art Gallery during the month of March and support this great non-profit art space!

Blake: The Boy Within

A good friend of my family is about to become a grandma for the very first time! A lady of great style, she knew that grandbaby Blake's already gorgeous nursery should have some Kate Cosgrove Art custom creations. The parents-in-progress (mom featured in photo) were interested in painted letters to hang above his crib.

While I had not worked on letters before - I was very happy to help! (In addition, Grandma requested that the payment for this project go towards the adoption fund for our little girl. Thanks so much for that!!)

To the family, Congratulations! And to Blake, your room is now ready, sir.

Kate Cosgrove Art Flies Further South Than Ever Before...

My artwork is traveling to more exotic lands than I am these days... The latest locale: Colombia.

Juan Marin, is not only the first Colombian owner of Kate Cosgrove Art, but he also became the top winner of my 'FaceBook Fan Page Challenge' by recruiting more 'fans' than anybody!

Juan (see photo) braves the harsh Colombian winter to pose with some feline friends and his new art piece, a cat ACEO [mini original painting].

Is it just me, or is his tiger-cat pal looking directly at the painting? Maybe she will be the second Colombian customer... and the first non-human... Thanks Juan!

ACEO of the WEEK: Edna's Cat

Bid today on "Edna's Cat"
*ACEO: Art Collectibles Editions Originals
a highly addictive form of miniature art...

Edna's cat is based off of an old lady that lived next door to my childhood home. Edna was a chain-smoker in hounds-tooth polyester pants and metallic gold wallpaper from the 70s... She would always try to feed me bowls of vanilla ice cream with cherries in it.
