Upcoming Workshops with Silvia Trujillo

I’ve been at the drawing board (literally) working on three large commissions for the new Oregon Retina Center in Medford, getting work ready for my solo exhibit at The Berryman Gallery (located in the Craterian Theater), acted as juror for a member show, finished up the teen mentor project, and recently taught a ‘Clouds & Skies’ workshop. Besides all this I’ve managed to get a bit of plein air work in and attend some open model sessions. Whew, it’s been a busy Spring, but I’m grateful for all of the opportunities! And of course I’m still showing new work at the Art & Soul Gallery in Ashland.

If you’d like to keep up with my latest works and offerings, please visit my blog (link at bottom) and subscribe …
