            Welcome Friends and Art Collectors!  2017 was a terrific year with Cliff’s art being selected to be exhibited  10 juried national and international art shows, and winning awards (see “Winning Awards” in the above section).  We are looking  forward to Cliff’s art being accepted in new competitions in 2018!  We appreciate each person who has attended the receptions and especially those of you who purchased a Cliff Barnes original or print.  Thank you!

            We also appreciate your feedback as we continue to have Cliff’s art selected in National Competitions. Cliff’s art was shown at the Fallbrook Art Center Signature Watercolor Exhibit and the Cattlemen’s Western Art Show. Here are three other art exhibits planned for 2018 thus far...and more coming...

  1. 1.  The American Impressionists Society Show selected one of Cliff’s special oil paintings of a moose to be shown at the Greenwich House Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio from March 23-April 21, 2017. 

  2. 2.   Another one of Cliff’s special watercolor paintings will be exhibited at the Signature Show of the American Plains Artists in Pawhuska, Oklahoma from March 23-April 30th, 2018.

  3. 3. We will be in San Dimas, CA again for their annual Festival of Art at the San Dimas Civic Center from April 27-29 and tickets are still available for the Friday nigh reception and the Saturday Dinner which you can purchase at the door.  On Saturday at high noon, come see Cliff prepare for the traditional artists “Quick Draw”  where you will see Cliff in action as he starts a watercolor painting from scratch and completes it within an hour!  It will be auctioned and you can then take home a painting that you saw him create! 

  4. 4. The California Art Club announced that Cliff has been selected as the higher classification of “Artist”!  This means that Cliff can now exhibit his art in their specially selected art exhibits.  Cliff’s watercolor of Canyon de Chelly was just selected for the Canyons to Coves Exhibit at the California Art Club Gallery in San Marino at 1120 Old Mill Road.  We will be there for the reception on Thursday, May 24th from 5:30 to 7:30 PM.  The exhibit will continue through Sept. 16th
