"Thanks for visiting 901Art. I'm very excited to share with you my love of creating colored pencil art. Have a look around, check out the gallery, enjoy the blog, and thank you for whatever art YOU bring into the world!" —Rhonda Dicksion
One of my newest pieces, “Wildberries” was accepted for the Schack Art Center’s 21st Annual Juried show. The piece was one of 121 chosen for the show from more than 600 entries!
The show features many different 3D and 2D media and I’m really happy to have this chance to represent colored pencil to a large audience.
The show runs through April 14, 2018. The Schack Art Center is located on Hoyt Avenue in Everett, Washington.
If you can’t get to the show, you can see the pieces online on Facebook here.
Woohoo! The Schack show made the Everett Herald and they mentioned us:
“Be sure also to see Bruce Morrow’s oil painting “Magpie Rodeo,” Tom Gross Shader’s oil painting “Farmstand,” Mike O’Day’s funny sculpture “Last Caw,” James Snitily’s two-textured ceramic vessels, Rhonda Dicksion’s Colored Pencil Drawing of “Wildberries,” and Kathleen Faulkner’s oil pastel “Southbound.”
“It’s a must-see exhibit,” Johansen said.

Ribbons at The Evergreen State Fair in Monroe
It was time to do a few dog circles when I found out the two pieces I entered in the state fair this year won ribbons. Rose Crush took a second with 89 points, and with a score of 91 Still Life with Harley won a first place and the Judge’s Choice ribbon! Thanks to everyone in the fine arts division at the fair for your hard work and the care you take with the artwork… and the artists!
