Canvas by Canvas
June 6, 2008 – August 30, 2008
IMAGINE . . . Each square of every painting is done by a different artist! Canvas by Canvas is a group of Texas artists who share a love of painting and have a unique friendship. Their individual painting styles are as different as their signatures but they unite their painting voices to produce dramatic art.
Each square of every painting is done by a different Canvas by Canvas artist, and the charm of the finished painting lies in the individuality of style found in each section. Each square is initialed on the front and signed on the side by the artist who painted it. The front of the painting is also signed with the Canvas by Canvas group signature.
These are a few highlights in a banner career for Canvas by Canvas: Canvas By Canvas was recently filmed by the Nationally Syndicated TV Show "The Art of Living." The story of their friendships and their art was filmed in March of 2007 and first televised in the metroplex in December, 2007.
In March, Canvas by Canvas members attended the Park City Presbyterian Church Reception in Dallas to celebrate their acceptance into the PCPC Arts Festival 2008 juried show "Beginnings: Genesis". They were pleased to learn that their award winning submission, "The Core of Sin", was one of the first paintings to sell at the juried show from over 150 works of art on display. This is the second year in a row that Canvas by Canvas paintings have been accepted into a PCPC Arts Festival juried show.
Canvas by Canvas was invited to show three of their paintings: ‘King of the Road,” “Hootin' Nannies,” and “Circle of Friends” -- in Art Splash on the Square, the annual national juried show held in Graham, Texas in May.
Canvas by Canvas has learned that two of their paintings: “Poppin' Poppies” and “A Sticky Situation” -- were accepted into the 2008 ART IN THE GARDEN sale and show to be held in September at the Fort Worth, Texas Botanic Garden. Their painting "Poppin’ Poppies" is a National Merit Award Winner and "Circle of Friends" is a National Juror's Choice Award Winner
Two of their paintings, “A Table Before Me,” and “The Good Shepherd,” have been spotlighted in a new publication... a collection of art celebrating the scripture of the 23rd Psalm.
