At the Barn Gallery, Ogunquit, Maine

My colored pencil still life, Heirloom Tomatoes and Chard, has been juried into the Barn Gallery's annual Open, Regional, Juried Exhibition. It's exciting to be a part of this show, and I must admit that sometimes I forget how fortunate I am to live so close to an area that has such an active and dynamic arts community... especially in the summer!

Regional Artists: An Open, Juried Show
Barn Gallery
On the corner of Shore Road and Bourne Lane
Ogunquit, Maine

Exhibition Dates: Wednesday, June 29 - Sunday, July 30, 2011
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 9, 5 - 8 PM

Friday Reception at Lyme Art Association

I'm excited to be visiting Old Lyme, Connecticut for the first time, as I travel there on Friday for the artists' reception of the Hudson Valley Art Association's 80th Annual Exhibit at the Lyme Art Association. Seeing the nearby Florence Griswold Museum is going to be a wonderful bonus!

This detail of Pizzelle On A Pedestal, my colored pencil piece which is included in the HVAA exhibit, shows very well a particular characteristic that has earned it an alternate title, coined by my much beloved mother: You Could Have Ironed That. I love it!

****6/24 Update: A disappointing change of plans!
A miserable sounding and potentially hazardous weather forecast for the Lyme area today... which would come after our four hour drive... has prompted me to cancel our trip. I'm feeling sad about missing the reception, but still hope to see the HVAA show, and the Florence Griswold Museum sometime in July.

Opening Reception on Friday

Two of my colored pencil pieces have been juried into this wonderful local show, Art Is Community II, put on by the Saco River Art League. I have shown my work once before in this charming space on the banks of the Saco River, and am happy to be here again... this time with so many special people!

Not only is this an exciting exhibit of the work of many of the area's artists and fine craftspeople, but also a real community event which includes art making activity for one and all! Come check it out and have some fun, in the lower level of the Old White Church, this weekend.

I'm looking forward to seeing many old friends and new at the reception on Friday! (I will be at the show on Sunday as well.) Please come if you can!
