Dave's final "virtual" craft show of the 2020 will be the McLean Holiday Art and Crafts Festival. The festival, which will run from 4:00PM to around 5:30PM on both December 5th and 6th, will include live chats with the artists and pre-recorded videos. The event is free, but registration is required on the McLean Community Center website.
Click here to see Dave's first-ever video tour of his Arlington studio! The tour was part of this year's Arlington Visual Arts Studio Tour, which showcased the studios of some 40 local artists in September.
Two of Dave's bookplate designs (see below) are part of the Guild of American Papercutters' new exhibit, Ex Libris. The exhibit is at the Laurel Arts Center in Somerset, Pennsylvania, and runs from late September through late November before traveling elsewhere.
New Galleries! Because the coronavirus has rendered most fall art and craft shows virtual this year, Dave has greatly increased the number of papercuttings he displays on his website's galleries. In addition, he has added many new subject-matter galleries--including holidays, music and arts, and children's stories--as well as a separate gallery featuring holiday ornaments. Please check them out! As always, if you would like to purchase one of Dave's papercuttings, please use the website's Contact page or reach out to Dave on Facebook.
