Web Site Updated, WRAE Award & Exhibit Info

 

Take a stroll around my web site – it was updated recently and has lots of new paintings on it, thanks to my good friend and webmaster, Chris Watson (www.watsonink.com). I always welcome feedback, please let me know what you think!

As always, every painting is guaranteed. I want my customers to be happy. Keep in mind that the color on your screen will not exactly match the color in the painting, but it should be close. The paintings have been categorized and the information for each painting, including its price, is displayed next to it.

My Opening Reception for “It’s about Space, It’s about Time!” was very well attended – thank you all for coming! If you missed the show or you can’t make the Tuesday or Wednesday hours (or you’d just like to see my paintings again!) there will be an informal “Saturday Afternoon at the Studio” on April 21, 1:00 to 3:00pm. There will be cookies and coffee. I will be there with my paints and you are welcome to ask questions. If you’d like, you can bring something to work on too as the tables will be set up as they normally are for Creative Community hours. Open Studio is located at 30B Hollis Street in Groton. Hope to see you there!

Regular viewing hours for the exhibit are Tuesdays 10:00 to 3:00pm and Wednesdays 6:30 to 9:30pm, during the weekly Creative Community hours. And, in case you still can’t make it, there will be a Closing Party on Monday night May 14, 7:00 to 8:30!

I recently participated in a 10x10 Auction to benefit the Chelmsford Center for the Arts. 50 area artists were chosen and each received a gallery-wrapped, 10x10” blank canvas to paint and then donate to the silent auction. Minimum bid for each painting was $50.00. All proceeds go to the restoration of the Old Chelmsford Town Hall, home of Chelmsford Center for the Arts. I painted a chocolate covered strawberry.

At the Westford Regional Art Exhibit at the Parish Center for the Arts in Westford this spring, my painting “Artist Georgia” won first place in the Oil-Acrylic/Professional-Experienced division.

This Year's Exhibits

My first solo show this year, "It's about Space, It's about Time!" will be at the Open Studio in Groton, http://www.openstudiogroton.com located at 30B Hollis Street, from March 29 to April 30. This unique space is where I have been spending my Tuesday mornings since the beginning of January. The Open Studio concept is that anyone may bring their portable creative projects, such as art, writing, needlecrafts, etc., and spend time working on them UNINTERRUPTED. This was the brainchild of Ellen Olson-Brown and co-owner Miranda Hersey, who found this idea to be helpful in their own lives. The loosely enforced schedule is 50 minutes quiet time followed by 10 minutes to socialize.

I have started and completed (or nearly completed) one or more paintings each week during these Creative Community hours. All of them will be displayed at this show, along with additional paintings including a number of new works.

Join us at the Opening Reception on Tuesday evening, March 29 from 7:00 to 8:30pm. Wine and nibbles will be served. If you can't make it to the Opening Reception, the show may be viewed during the usual Creative Community hours: Tuesdays 10:00 to 3:00pm and Wednesdays 6:30 to 9:30pm, or by appointment.

Coming up:

At the end of this month, I will have two paintings on display at the Westford Regional Art Exhibit at the Parish Center for the Arts in Westford. Opening Reception is Friday evening, 7:00 to 9:00pm; the exhibit may be viewed Saturday, March 31, 10:00 to 5:30, and Sunday, April 1, 10:00 to 3:00.

Later this spring, I will be participating in the annual Regional Art Exhibit at the Fitchburg Art Museum in Fitchburg. The Opening is Sunday, June 24, 1:00 to 3:00pm, and the show runs from June 27 to September 5.

During the month of July, I will be the Guest Artist at the Art on Main Gallery, 40 Main Street, Westford. A "Wine and Nibbles" Opening Reception will be held Thursday evening, July 5, 5:00 to 8:00pm. The gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday, 10:00 to 5:00 and Sunday 10:00 to 3:00.

I will also be exhibiting paintings at the annual Chelmsford Art Society's July 4th art show. Dates and times TBA.

And don't forget to drop by The Floral Arts Gallery in Westford - I have recently delivered some new artwork!
