Mystic Seaport Museum: International Exhibition

As summer has finally drawn to a close, it’s so fun to look forward to all that Fall has coming! First up, I am very excited to be exhibiting with the Mystic Seaport Museum’s Maritime Gallery for the first time!

The show is their annual International Marine Art Exhibition. I have two pieces that will be on view from September 27th through December 31st.

 

I’m not allowed to show you the two new pieces that will be exhibited until the opening on Friday, but I can tell you the are called “Green Light” and “Glassy Wave”.

Stay tuned for Friday when I can share the pieces on Instagram

Scituate Education Foundation: Light Up the Night

This April 6th, the Scituate Education Foundation will hold their annual gala, “Light Up the Night” benefiting educational programs in the community. I am so pleased to have been asked to donate a piece to their photography auction. The ‘Colorscape Gallery’, showcases work from area artists highlighting the range of colors seen throughout the region.

This is an unusual piece for me as I typically use my photography as reference, not as the final piece. See a sneak peak below:

As of now, this is a single print so in order to bid, you will have to see it at the event! For tickets, see their website, and hopefully I’ll see you on April 6th!

Summer at Star Gallery, Northeast Harbor, ME

See the source image

After a wonderful time last summer, I am thrilled to be back at Star Gallery, on Mount Desert Island, Maine, for a second summer! This time, instead of an exhibition, I will have work available at the gallery throughout the summer. Mostly small work, as well as a few medium sized pieces to see if you are up in Acadia. Katherine always has some fantastic artists in her space. I love Michele Lauriat, who I have exhibited with in the past, her watercolor work is inspired (she’ll be exhibiting Aug 2nd) and Robert S. Neuman is another personal favorite who will be in later August.

A preview of the work is below, any questions can be directed to the gallery (information below):

Visual Destination: at Woodward Gallery, NYC

I am totally thrilled to be part of a new exhibition, “Visual Destination”, at the Woodward Gallery from June 21 – July 27th. Showcasing 3 female artists: myself, Susan Breen, and Margaret Morrison (both of which I am a huge fan) the exhibit celebrates different ideas of nature. More on the show at the Woodward Gallery’s website here.
