SLOPOKE advertising and show schedule

Posted August 3, 2020

A few have asked for the SLOPOKE SHOW Schedule: Here it is:


• Friday: Available for hanging art between noon and 4 pm. Art must be hung by 4 pm. Jurying for Awards is completed between 4 and 5:30 that day.  Opening Reception: 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm
• Saturday: Open to Public 10am – 5pm. Artists arrive a little. before 10am
• Sunday: 10 am – 4 pm Artists arrive a little before 10 and you can begin packing up for departure at 4 pm

You will hang your own art; however, special hooks and nails are provided by Show Management. Please use those. Having a hammer and needle nose pliers with you will expedite things but we will have a couple available.


This advertisement promoting SLOPOKE will run as a 2/3 page color ad in the next issues of Art of the West and Western Art and Architecture magazines.



Because we may be the first or one of the first live art shows post shutdown this year in California, we want to encourage art collectors and people who like art to visit and support our talented artists. Look for these great magazines on your newsstand or online if you don’t already subscribe. Although there are many good art journals, these two are among the very best and we recommend to people that they subscribe. To enhance everybody’s safety, we are implementing precautions similar to those that have kept customers and staff safe at grocery stores: social distancing, hand sanitizer, Free cotton SLOPOKE bandanas as face masks (and as souvenirs) for everyone and a venue which is an outdoorsy rural western horse ranch away from population centers called Flag Is Up Farms in State Route 246 in Solvang, California. Please come admire and consider purchasing the original works of these creative artists! Please share this post. Thank you, #slopokewesternartshow.


Artists: Please help spread the word by sharing this image and this paragraph to all of your friends, family, collectors, customers, gallery owners, who live close enough to Solvang to make their visit practical for them. Thank you. Sincerely, Tom
