Four Fall Art Fairs

Postcard Franciscan Festival 2017

Hello all — Before time keeps flying by, I wanted to tell you the four events this fall where I’ll be selling my artwork, prints and cards.

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve been juried into the long-running Fransiscan Festival of Fine Arts located in Mesilla Park, just outside Las Cruces, over the Saturday/Sunday of Labor Day weekend.  I’ll be indoors in room 5 with fellow watercolorist Dorian Clouser. The hours are Saturday, Sept 2nd 9am – 5 pm and Sunday, September 3rd from 10 am – 4 pm.  Hope to see you there!

AutumnArtFest 2cols final

On Saturday, September 23rd we will inaugurate a BRAND NEW venue for art shopping.  The show originated after the Sunland Art Gallery closed and several of the members were looking for other venues to sell their work. Rachel Davis, a beaded cross artist, had always wanted to have a show at her home in the Upper Valley, which has a large, beautiful, shaded yard perfect for an art show.  So the Autumn Art Fest was born!

I will be on the covered patio with print, cards, and originals for sale and would love to have you stop by!  The hours are 10 am – 5 pm.

On Saturday, October 14th, I will be at the Western Hills United Methodist Church Fall Bazaar, 524 Thunderbird, El Paso,  which is a long running fun arts event.  The hours are 9 am – 4 pm.

On November 18-19th, I will have a booth at Queen of Peace’s Annual Bazaar, 1551 Belvidere Street, El Paso.  Saturday November 18th:  9 am – 7 pm.  Sunday November 19th: 9 am – 3 pm.

Selling locally AND online


Basket of Christmas Ornaments available at the Sunland Art Gallery, online, and at local shows

I’ve been quiet lately on my blog, but still painting and doing the business behind the scenes of getting ready to sell at several holiday fairs this season and to open my online shop!  You can see a sampling of what is available on the Online store page at the top of the menu or by going directly to my store at Rachel Murphree Watercolors.

I will be at two fairs this season:

  • November 12-13 at Queen of Peace Bazaar, 1551 Belvidere on El Paso’s Westside :  Saturday  from 9-7 and Sunday from 9-3.
  • December 3 at Bethany Christian Church, 10453 Springwood on El Paso’s Eastside from 9-3.

My online shop has some inventory available and will be growing steadily over the weekend.  I have to get this all done before taking a three day watercolor workshop starting Sunday!

Just in time for the holiday season: ornaments from mini prints of my paintings.  They are about 2.5″ x 4″ and are mounted on a square of mat board with a pretty ribbon for hanging.  You can see some of the ornaments close up here:
