The End Begins Again
acrylic and graphite on mylar
Seemed like an appropriate thought and image as one year passes to another.
I did this in November at a workshop with Tim Hawkesworth, but it was actually without Tim Hawkesworth as he was busy in the hospital recovering from a heart attack.
It was an intense and bewildering time for all involved.
So, since my last post I've moved to a new studio space, done some painting, and tried to get back into a regular figure drawing groove.
As for shows, I've got one piece, and older one, in the back gallery at Oxbow Gallery, Northampton, MA. That will be up through the 4th of January and another little piece in GALA's new gallery space in Gardner, MA, also up until the 4th.
My solo show at The Center at Eagle Hill remains up through the end of January, and three pieces continue to hang in Worcester at the Hanover Theatre until early February.
I got a small mention and picture of a work in progress in Dean Nimmer's newest book, Creating Abstract Art. There will be an exhibit at the Taber Gallery at Holyoke Community College of the work from that book. Show will run from January 26, 2015- February 26, 2015. Details to follow.
So, as 2014 is laid to rest and the new year begins with great intentions, I wish you all wellness, happiness and peacefulness.
Followed by a performance of Zydeco music by Les Amis Creole
The exhibit will run through January 31, 2015
Gallery hours, weekdays 3:30p.m- 5:00p.m.
Well, the day is here! I am a little nervous, a little excited, and looking forward to seeing old friends and new. Please stop by and enjoy the hospitality of Eagle Hill School.
October has been flying by with various show and installation preparations.
In a couple days I will be delivering and installing work for my solo show at The Center at Eagle Hill.
More on that, later.
Already up are three good-sized paintings in the windows at the Hanover Theatre, 2 Southbridge Street, Worcester, MA.
I made these specifically to hang here in the long windows of the contemporary theater facade where they will remain for four months (that's early February 2015).
If you are in the area, take a stroll by and have a look.
Opening Night at Imagine Gallery was a great success!
Thank you to so many friends and family members who made the trip to Northampton for my solo show.
I had the chance to meet lots of new, interesting folks that I hope to see again, as well.
This exhibition, with thirty pieces of my work in a wide range of media, will be up until the end of the month.
Please note: If you are using Google to find your way here, it will send you to Main Street in Florence, MA, a lovely place, but not where Imagine Gallery is!
Imagine Gallery is on the second floor of 70 Main Street downtown Northampton, very near the intersection of Main and Pleasant.
Regular hours are Fridays from 6-9 p.m. and Saturdays 3-9 p.m.
You are also very welcome to call and schedule a time to visit the gallery.
Call 413-585-5830 to make arrangements.
Tricia and Kitt are warm, generous people who are very welcoming, so don't be shy!
