Accepted into Del Ray Artisans "Skeletons" exhibit

NOTE: To see larger images of the art, click on any image below.

I had three works accepted into the Del Ray Artisans exhibit "Skeletons: Exploring Under the Surface" which features artwork that examines what is under the surface, literally or figuratively.

Penetration, digital art, LK Jeffers
This is my portrayal of the almost constant penetration of our heart and soul by love, hate, news, social media, etc.

Intruding Past, digital art, LK Jeffes
This piece is an homage to my Dad.  That is a portrait of him on the right.  He lived through a lot of traumatic experiences in his life.  I don't know if it was because of those past experiences or in spite of them, that he became such an amazingly caring and loving person.

Barely Keeping My Head Above Water, serigraph, LK Jeffers
Finally, this serigraph print, 'Barely Keeping My Head Above Water',  represents how I have felt much of my life :).

The exhibit will be up the month of October with an opening reception on Friday, Oct 2nd and a Halloween Party on Oct. 31st.  The Del Ray Artisans gallery is located at 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria VA.  Visit for more information.

Art at the Mill's 25th Anniversary Exhibition October 3-18, 2015

I'm thrilled to have 3 watercolors and 2 hand-pulled prints accepted into The Art at the Mill's 25th anniversary exhibition which runs from Oct. 3rd to Oct 18th at the  Burwell-Morgan Mill at 15 Tannery Lane, Millwood, VA.

The show will have 2D and 3D art, at very reasonable prices, from many fine artists. This is a fund raising exhibit with 40% of the proceeds going to help with the upkeep of the Mill.  There will be several hundred works of art on display that were selected from more than 1,100 works submitted. Historically, many of them sell in the first few days.

It's a beautiful drive to the Mill.  If you take Routes 66 and 17 it's a little over an hour from Arlington with apple orchards and wineries along the way. There is a gourmet shop across the street from the Mill with light meals/snacks.  And, several fine restaurants are in the general area such as the Ashby Inn.

The closing reception is Oct. 18th.  There is also a "free" day on Sat. Oct. 10th, otherwise the cost of this fund raising exhibit is $5 ($3 seniors, children 12 and under are free).
