I had two show openings this week-end.

The one at Edward Jones in Kittery, Maine is a part of a satellite program of the KAA, and I have 6 pieces there that will hang until April, 2015. https://www.facebook.com/kitteryartassociation?fref=photo for more information-and there is a picture of three of the artists (including me) and the curator, Judy Bryant.

“Fall to Earth” is the last regular show at Blackbird, and runs through December 7. This collective of 15 artists produces in my estimation, the best work in the area. There is no lack of variety, ingenuity, or experimentation. The work is on the grounds as well as inside. I have 9 framed pieces and around 30 unframed pieces as well as painted light switch plates and beaded handbags available  for purchase.

Our opening receptions have also included live music. Since we had a brief period of rain yesterday, the Rogue Town Managers moved inside. When the rain stopped, they moved back outside to entertain those seated under two tents.

The gallery hours are 11-6, Wednesday-Sunday. You might also catch prints being pulled off the flatbed press, an installation being mapped out, an artist being interviewed for MODspoke, a local e-zine, as well. 387 Somersworth Rd. (Rte. 9), North Berwick, Maine.
