It’s our birthday-and YOU could win a present!

Art: Poka-Dot Birthday by Artist Delilah Smith  EBSQ is very excited to be celebrating its 9th year of operation. It seems like yesterday that we were a small rag-tag group of artists selling our work on eBay. My, how we’ve grown!  And to kick of the party, we’d like to offer you a chance to win a FREE YEAR with EBSQ.

There are two ways you can enter the free-year drawing:

  • Simply reply to this blog post letting us know why you love EBSQ.
  • Follow us on Twitter and send us an @EBSQ note (not a direct tweet).

You can do either–or both! Just do it before 11pm EDT on 09/10/09. The winner will be randomly selected and announced on our blog  on 09/11/09.

North Light books artist and author Cathy Johnson will demonstrate her techniques for watercolor painting at the 2nd Friday Art Crawl in Excelsior Springs, MO.

Johnson is the author of 34 books, including 9 for North Light Books, (one of two major publishers of art books), the Sierra Club Guide to Sketching in Nature and The Sierra Club Guide to Painting in Nature, for the Sierra Club.

She has judged art shows all over the USA, and done a number of presentations and workshops for arts associations from Maine to Nevada, as well as offered field sketching classes at statewide Nature Centers for the Missouri Department of Conservation.

Johnson spoke to the first international gathering of the Sierra Club in San Francisco in 2005 on sketching and painting in nature.

Come see some of the innovative techniques in person, at 115 E. Broadway in Excelsior Springs, Friday, June 12.

Johnson regularly shows her work at Olde English Garden Shoppe, along with Polly Jaben, PhD, photographer of scenes from Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales as well as the USA.  Jaben’s eye for the perfect shot and Johnson’s watercolors and drawings work well with the boutique’s offerings.

The 2nd Friday art crawl will include a number of other shops and galleries in downtown Excelsior Springs, including Gallery 105, Frame of Mind, the Mercantile, and others.  There will be music, wine tastings, and food–join us for an exciting evening!
