Former Students in Stock Show of Denver, Coors Western Art Exhibit

How exciting to see the art work of two of my former students in prestigious art exhibits at the Stock Show in Denver!  David Grossmann was accepted into the Coors Western Exhibit and Sarah Phippen at the Club Exhibit. Find them at:
  http://www.coorswesternart.com/index.php/david-grossmann  and
 http://www.coorswesternart.com/index.php/sarah-phippen

Sarah and David attended my classes as teens and inspired other students with their enthusiasm and determination to practice.  Successful artists rarely have only one teacher; they continued their training and built on that early foundation.  I'm proud to have been part of that foundation and so proud of them!

The Stock Show runs through Jan 21.  Since Sarah and David are showing their art in different places at the show, find the Coors Exhibit (for David) and inquire at the desk there about the Club Exhibit to arrange to see Sarah's paintings as well.
