Nel Dorn Byrd Studio Tour Nov. 5 & 6

neldornbyrdlogo

My ANNUAL STUDIO TOUR will be November 5 & 6 with hours of 10 to 5 both days.  You’re invited to come see my paintings, tour my studio & visit.  This is the 13th year to open my studio to guests & the third year since relocation to Denton County.  If you’ve not been here since we moved, I think you would enjoy a drive into the country.  I have a beautiful view from my studio  with constant inspiration from nature.   (sometimes some wild life to view also)  The address is 3800 Elm Bottom Circle, Aubrey, TX & my phone # is 940-381-3018.  Inspired by the local color and subjects nearby I have been painting landscapes of Denton County as well as scenes from downtown Denton.
Nel Dorn Byrd is a signature member of several watercolor societies and her work has been included in many publications and books.  Her paintings are in corporate and private collections throughout the United States.  She paints in a loose, impressionistic style and her works often depict strong light and dark patterns with the play of light giving excitement and interest to any subject.  Nel feels that working in a series is oftentimes conducive to the creative process. For more see www.neldornbyrd.com
byrdstudiotour

Watercolor continues to be a huge part of my life; sales are good & always lift my spirits.  I have completed several commissions this year – sometimes a challenge but always rewarding.  Thank you all for your continued support.   I am active in the Visual Art Society of Texas (VAST)  and I had a solo exhibition at the Black Box Theatre in Denton, April 1 – July 15,  with  thirteen watercolors depicting Denton scenes.  And my painting of a fall landscape titled,  Autumn, was selected for inclusion in the 2017 VAST calendar – month of October.

Watercolor USA is a top notch yearly exhibition at the Art Museum in Springfield, MO with a juror from the academic world.  I have entered for more years than I’m telling, but at long last, I had a piece accepted into the show – SO EXCITED!  Juror was Lynne Warren, Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.  Leon and I attended the opening reception in Springfield on June 3.
                             

Also, my work has been accepted into the following juried competitions this year:

10th Annual 125-Mile Visual Arts Exhibition, Denton – “Insight”
Arts Open Call – Greater Denton Arts Council – “100% Cotton”
41st Annual Western Federation Exhibition, Arvada, CO – “Popper Building”
TX Watercolor Society 67th Annual “, New Braunfels  – Waiting Renovation”     – award
SWA 2016 International, Ft Worth – “Texas Cotton”   – cash award
TX & Neighbors 31st Annual, Irving – “Rockers at Rest”
27th Annual VAST Members Exhibition, Denton – “Denim on the Stalk”
Kansas Watercolor Society National – “Denim on the Stalk”
I hope you will put my studio tour on your calendar;   I will have matted & framed watercolors along with my printed notecards & original cards.  Again this year, you can register to win one of my original watercolor paintings given as a door prize. (image below)  Bill Harmon was last year’s winner.

Remember the dates, Saturday and Sunday, November 5 & 6 with hours of 10 to 5.  I will look forward to seeing you then!

 My barrel racing granddaughter has been asking me to paint horses;  here is the first of a new series.

Historic Continental Gin Building Opens Doors to Showcase the Work of 40+ Artists

continenalginBWlogo
The Continental Gin Building (CGB) will open its doors to the public Friday, November 6th from 6-10 pm and Saturday, November 7th from 2-8 pm for an open house showcasing the work of 44 diverse artists.
Guests are invited to enjoy abundant wine, treats, and live music by the Felix Flores Band.  The 127-year-old building is known as the oldest art community in Deep Ellum. For almost 30 years the CGB has been the home for a community of diversified artists including: craftsmen, film producers, painters, photographers, designers (clothing, accessories, interior), and more. It has grown to 65 tenants who create and collaborate within the historic walls. They are individual artists, under one roof, inspiring each other through an interactive community. 
About the CGB:
 For over two decades, artists have occupied the Continental Gin Building, making it one of the oldest creative communities in Dallas. At least twice a year, the studios are open to the public, each Fall and Spring. The Continental Gin Company was built in 1888 by Robert S. Munger, housed in a series of brick warehouses along Elm Street and Trunk Avenue. The company was closed in 1962, as Deep Ellum went through several transitions. In 1982, local real estate developer John Tatum purchased the property and spaces first began being rented to artists, thus establishing the Continental Gin Building as one of the oldest art communities in Dallas. It now houses a mix of accomplished professionals, soon-to-be-discovered and the as-yet undiscovered hopefuls, who are all diligently pursuing their talents whether that be apparel design, graphic design, photography, sculptures, film, painting, glasswork or more.
