A bonafide artinsmallplaces week-end

I was straight out this week-end and did not put a nail into a wall or pick up a brush. So, it could have been better, but, I really like seeing other people’s work, too.

Friday night, I followed up on a lead I got from my Moderns group at the KAA. And, please visit the blog I just created for the group called The Seacoast Moderns Group! After scoring a show in August in downtown Portsmouth, I decided to come home.

Since I have been the major maniac, I decided that I would chill Saturday, and not paint. Malynda from the Gatehouse Gallery had invited me up for the Tamworth Art Council auction. And I had not made any posts about shows other than those that I am somehow associated with. On my way up, I stopped in Wolfeboro.

This gallery packs the art, but there is some memorable work. Edward Gordon’s work is amazingly technically beautiful. It lacks soul, but I admired it for the precision. Other artists that I picked up info about were Suzanne deLesseps, Valerie Schurer Christle and others. I found most of the work predictably representational. But,this gallery was definitely worth checking out, where the Artisan’s Corner, right next door…not so much for fine art.
