I seem to find myself daily telling my little FB world about my art-and I am certainly missing a much larger audience. So…I can always start here, and repost to FB.
Crazy, silly busy week-end in this area for art openings. The first that I attended was on Friday, for the Gallery at 100 Market, in Portsmouth, for their spring show. I have two pieces in this show.
There’s more, and I am being limited to the amount of space I can take per blog. Hence, a collection of posts all about January! And, this is a quiet month.
This piece made its debut last year in Tamworth, and spent all summer and fall there. It faired better in Kittery and won’t be coming back to Rochester.
Pennies from Heaven made it out of the mothballs to make its first public appearance. This piece was completed in 2008, but has never been shown. I am making a point this year to show old work and reduce the prices to make more room for new work.
The reception was fairly well-attended by artists and art-lovers. The picture of Anne, Niles and Barbara was early in the evening.
At the end of the afternoon at Dahlia, Kerri Morton, the proprietor and I decided that my work should continue to hang in her store through Valentine’s Day.
I left and followed Jean Coughlin back to her house to look at the studio space that she intends to share which comes complete with a flatbed relief printing press and other art making tools. To be continued…
The following day was the opening reception at Kittery Art Association.
Once upon a time, I thought that the art “season” in this part of the country began on Memorial Day week-end, and ran through Columbus Day. As the art community up here “unearths” itself, I am finding more and more opportunities to show throughout the year.
And, I am busy.
The year kicked off with finding out at the end of December, 2013, that I was accepted into the present show at the Gallery at 100 Market Street in Portsmouth.
This show occupies 4 floors of a prestigious office building in downtown Portsmouth that hosts 4-5 juried group exhibits annually. I am one of 30 in this show, and I have a total of five pieces here. These three are on the 3rd floor, 2 are on the 1st. This show will hang until the 12th of April.
Last week-end was all art for me, and I painted very little-though I did-stay tuned for the next post!! I was part of a BAA pop-up event at Dahlia on Saturday, and “The Sky’s the Limit” show opening reception was on Sunday .
The Dahlia pop-up in North Berwick was staged in the a smaller room behind the larger store space. Kerry, the shop’s owner, fully intends on using the space we filled as more retail space but turned it over to us for the day. And, what fun we had hanging the show the Wednesday before as well as hanging out (and selling) on Saturday.
No creativity in my writing tonight-all about a few announcements:
The York Library Show is open now through October 28. It is 60+ pieces strong and is one of the best group shows I have ever seen. Never mind that I have 5 pieces in it!
“Mettle”, the KAA Moderns group, opening reception is on the 10th, from 5-7. York Public Library, York, Maine.
The Mettle Shows are actually a Part 1 and Part 2. Part 2 is at the Kittery Art Association, from September 19-October 13, and the opening is September 22, from 4-6.
I will have this in this show:
I don’t see this as a huge jump, but I set up my 3 upcoming shows as showing the year’s development.
My “part 3”, and final “part” for the season is at the Gatehouse Gallery in the “Witches’ Brew”. That show opens on October 1, and will include Malynda Forcier, Misty Maybe, et moi. A sneak peak at that offering:
Please, please join us for the first 2 receptions- more details will follow on the last one!
The media gave us some attention, so I wanted to pass it on!!
This is from the recent Lady in Red event in Berwick.
I posted a few weeks back that I had joined the Berwick Art Association and that they were having this event.
The weather was perfect for having a pleine air gathering. Artists painted and drew, photographers shot. There were many great images to capture.
There were a few musical performances, as well. The Lady in Red played violin and sang when she made her entrance. Hilton Park also provided some wonderful folk, blues and even a little cover of an old Ray Davies tune.
The Our Lady of Peace Rectory is for sale and would be an amazing place for artists of all persuasions to meet, show, perform, teach, etc. The house on the property could be rented as studio/office spaces. I was one of the group to get a tour of the church. Oh my-let’s find the money, is all I can think!
