Celebrating and Conserving Our Planet at DailyPainters.com
An international fine art exhibit by 137 artists in 10 countries.
How do artists see the world around them? During August, our beautiful earth will be showcased daily in painted images at DailyPainters.com.
Local artist Deb Kirkeeide, (Minnetonka, MN) is among the 137 juried members of DailyPainters.com gallery who will present their unique view of the people, places, animals and other subjects from the world around them. Ms. Kirkeeide will be contributing a number of scenes that represent the Minnesota area. Also contributing to this show are local artists, Kristin Grevich (Medina, MN) and Judith Anderson (Minneapolis, MN).
Other DailyPainters.com members, hailing from the United States and nine other countries, will post hundreds more. “All of creation is potential subject matter during the Daily Painters Tribute” according to gallery owner Micah Condon. “I think we’ll see quite a variety of subject matter in this Tribute exhibit. We have artists who skillfully paint their beautiful regions so I know we’ll have lots of unique scenes from around the globe, including landscapes and cityscapes from Europe, the U.S., and elsewhere. Surprises may be in store for viewers too.”
Condon continues, “Our artists are committed to conserving our planet's resources, so some members will also be painting and discussing conservation-related themes. With gasoline so expensive these days, this exhibit is a terrific chance to see the world without driving or flying.”
The members of DailyPainters.com represent a growing trend in the art world, known as 'daily painting' or 'painting-a-day'. These artists strive to produce one small painting nearly every day posting them for view and sale at the online gallery. Site visitors (over 1.5 million expected this year) can enjoy the “still wet” paintings on the site, or subscribe to the free daily email updates to get the most recent art in their mailbox every morning. Visitors can also communicate directly with the painters, and learn the stories and inspiration behind the paintings. Or browse by artist, search by category, and visit the artists' blogs. Because the paintings are sold directly by the artists, prices are very affordable.
“Tribute to a Beautiful Earth” will run throughout August to celebrate the beauty of the earth and taking care of it. The show will open on August 1 with over one hundred original paintings; dozens more will be added each day throughout the month.
