International Guild of Realism

13th Annual Juried Exhibition


I am so excited to announce that my painting, Good Morning!, has been juried into this years prestigious International Guild of Realism’s, 13th annual Juried Exhibition! This has been a goal of mine for some time and I am honored to be selected!
This exhibition will be held at the Sugarman-Peterson Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico at, 30 West Palace Avenue. Show dates are October 5th -29th. There will be an opening reception on the October 5th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. It will be an incredible event and I am excited to go, having never been there before!
IGOR’s mission statement: Our mission is to advance realism in fine art through museum exhibitions, art gallery shows, workshops and education programs conducted by our Members, marketing support and Internet exposure.
For us, “realism” ranges from classical realism (based upon the traditional, academic-style painting techniques) to contemporary realism (where cutting edge techniques and subject matter are used to comment on today’s world). Trompe l’oeil, photorealism, surrealism, and super-realism are some of the genres included within the range of realism choices for modern artists, as well.

Holland Gallery of Fine Art

 Light and Beauty

34250 N. 60th Street in Scottsdale

1/26 – 2/21/2019

I want to share with you an exciting and unique group show coming up this February, at the Holland Gallery of Fine Art. Each of us artists have formed a bond through friendship and our artistic expression. All of us unique, yet with a common vision. We feel the call to be “bringers of light and beauty”, each interpreted in our own way. We are entranced with the Divine beauty in the world around us, the interplay of light and shadow, the tiniest flower, to the grandest mountain range, and flowing river. Inspiration also comes from birdsong, wildlife, our beloved pets, and even the human form. A sense of humor unfolds as well, a joy of life, and a joy in sharing our creations with those around us. We hope purely to inspire and uplift.

Show Dates: 1/26 – 2/21/2019

Artist wine and chocolate reception: 2/9 4:30 to 6:30

EMG Publications who are the publisher’s of Scottsdale Lifestyle, East Valley Lifestyle, Mesa Living, Gilbert Living and Gold Canyon Leisure Lifestyle Magazines, have selected celebrated Arizona Oil Painter, LUCY DICKENS for the April Cover and inside editorial.
They will be featuring Dickens’ recent excursion to Italy and the glorious paintings that followed. Chosen for the coveted cover was oil painting, “Passion”, which features one of the most beautiful sites in the Tuscan region of Italy. The landscape shows a field glowing in vibrant red poppies as far as the eyes can see. A quaint, Tuscan farm house rests on a hill over-seeing this crimson ocean.
The editorial also features three additional paintings which act as constant windows to a perennial place and time. “We are very excited to have Lucy’s wonderful paintings displayed in our magazines! Her work is fabulous and we’re sure our 73,000 readers will agree.” Vicki Yontz, editor. So “congratulations” to Lucy! I’m certain this is the first and many more to come”.
