Art Show Opening

Just a quick post to let everyone know about my show with fellow artist Judy Nocifora opening this week at the Memphis Botanic Gardens. Since we are "travel" buddies (to workshops and fun art events!), we entitled the show "Memories and Mementos: Two Painters' Journeys." If you are in the Memphis area this Thursday, September 8, we are having an opening reception from 5:30-7:30 pm. The show will hang until the end of September.

I also have to mention that my heart goes out to all of those in Texas who have recently lost their property (and some lives) to wildfires. One of my past workshop teachers who many in the art world adore (including myself!), Carol Marine, and her family lost their home and her studio in Bastrop, Texas. Thankfully they were able to get out themselves though. It has been hard for me to think of much else since I heard the news. Although I have only spent one week with her, she is one of the most giving and thoughtful teachers I have had so far in this painting journey I am on. I know there are many who are affected by this and continue to be at the time I am writing this post, so please remember them in your thoughts and prayers. There are also many links to provide support for Carol and her family out there, and if you are interested in helping and can't find a link, contact me at droseball@gmail.com and I will point you in the right direction.


  1. Would love to be at such a fabulous event! Love the postcard and just know the art will be beautiful. Will be thinking of you both and wishing for lots of red dots!!
    Thoughts and prayers for Carol, David and all the others affected by the terrible fires. I am so glad to see so many helping them out.

  2. Good luck with your show, Denise!! Hope you sell out. (:

  3. Wish I could be in Memphis for your show...best of luck. Know it is a lot of hard work but enjoy!
