This is an update of the Black Grounds, now named Jealousy and Fear. There are still some possible finishing touches on both but I am pretty comfortable.
This will give you a sense of scale of the newest work. “Untarnished Symphony” is 98″ x 69″. I’m short at 5’1″, but still, they are quite large.
The opening reception was small, but pleasant-attended mostly by friends, and a few of the faculty and students.
I would now like to use this show as a place to talk to galleries in the area. It is up through April 28th at Great Bay Community College in Portsmouth, NH. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A lot has been done to prep for this show, and I am really getting excited!! Press is already picking it up and I hope there is more to come!!
And, the public is certainly invited!!
I have a one-person show up though the end of the month at Timeless Framing in Rochester. NH. I stopped to see it next on my “art around the area”.
These are all of the recent “Portraits”, and a few of the transitional works.
The opening reception for this is next Friday, from 5-7.
If you are interested, please visit my website at http://www.dadartthurst.com and Friend me on Facebook at Daryl-Ann Hurst Studio.
The next couple of months will be very big for the visual arts in the area. Events are starting to overlap, and I can only be in so many places at once!!
This is my contribution to artwork offerings.
I hope all can attend!
I am now contracted to teach 3 adult education classes. I have on occasion sold classes without good examples for advertising. So, this week I played with doing a self-portrait in pastel. I know how, just haven’t in…probably 20 years. The first wasn’t a failure-actually a good drawing-but the face was me at 19.
I finished this today. More like it. I will be teaching several classes in the southern Maine and New Hampshire area, from watercolor, plein air, mixed media, and pastel portraits.
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.
