My Artshow


I'm getting ready for my art show opening tomorrow at 6:00. I spent all day yesterday getting it set up. Here's the press release:

THE HIGGINS MAXWELL GALLERY on 1200 Payne Street, Louisville, Ky 40204 will present American artist Richard L. Matteson Jr. from Oct. 10 until Nov 1. The show will open with a reception 6:00- 9:00 PM on Oct. 10. Matteson, who is nationally recognized musician, author and artist, will also present two musical performances at the gallery Oct. 11, 7:00 PM and Nov. 1, 7:00 PM. Admission is free. The Higgins-Maxwell gallery is open Mon-Sat, 10am-6pm. For information call Bob Higgins 502-584-7001.

There wasn't enough room for my large paintings. We had to move them over in a truck and we'll have to move them back again. The main focus is my new series: The Bluegrass Series and Driftwood Series. I also had no room for some of my other paintings. Everything looks good now and there's only a few details left.

The opening this Friday should be fun! I'll have my music books on a table and local author Lynn Tincher will be there signing copies of her book, Afterthoughts. I'll be featured in Lynn's newsletter, The Literary Lynnch Pen, on November 18th.

The granddaughter of the banjo picker in my painting Banjo Pickin' Girl (Lily May Ledford) will be there as well as old-time banjo player Harry Bickle. Hope we have a big turnout and everyone enjoys themselves.

Till next time,
