November 7th, 2007, art show news, Thieves Market

Okay, second morning in a row of 25 degree temperatures. Must be time to buy that ticket to Bisbee! (yes, that's an insider joke)

But I have another show to prepare for, so must keep nose to the grindstone. Grindstone, hmphf, I love this work and we all know it! But I really do have a show to prepare for and here are the details:

Thieves Market, held annually the first weekend in December, is sponsored by the Fine Arts Council at the University of Iowa. This year's dates are December 1st and 2nd. Typically it's a nice mix of fine art and fine craft, with artists from every upper midwestern state represented. The location for Thieves Market is the University Of Iowa Memorial Union, on campus, in Iowa City, Iowa. Hours are 10:00am thru 5:00pm each day. I will be exhibiting my paintings at this year's Thieves Market, including the newest pieces from my 'readers series'.

If you are in town, do stop by. If you don't live in Iowa City, I highly recommend Thieves Market as a great little road trip! Overnight accommodations are easy and excellent---The Iowa House Hotel (319 335-3513) is a large, extremely comfortable facility attached to the Union. [No winter coats necessary:)]

Okay, to the easel I go! Have a lovely day!

ps. thought you might like to see what's on the easel>>>>>>

Theives Market. I love that.
I really love your painting, Karen. Thanks for posting them and writing about the artist's life.
I've named my heroine in my current work in progress Abby. She's been raised by Indians after her pioneer parents died.
She doesn't rememeber her last name but would it be too much for it to be Cooper.
It's a good name.
I had a really tough cowgirl named Lindsay in the first book in this series and Abby was in it too, but we called her Glowing Sun then.
