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:

“Summer Ripple”, 8×8″ digital print, 2019

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

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.

Novograts Holiday Pop-Up Shop!

Whew, what a whirlwind of a December! Between openings and auctions, commissions and holiday gifts, I have been a little winded. It has taken me a a couple of weeks to pull my bits and pieces back together! Now that I’m slightly less disorganized (for the moment) I wanted to share one of the highlights of the season, my invitation to work with the Novogratz as part of their Holiday Pop-Up Shop!

On Thursday, December 14th, I was lucky enough to be part of their month long celebration of design, art, music and good cheer! I spent the day in the shop on 14th Street live painting one-of-a-kind ornaments using my acrylic techniques. A few lucky people were able to take one home, FOR FREE, courtesy of the lovely and generous Novogratz. I also had a larger piece of my work on display and was able to talk art, holidays, and generally just hang in a gorgeous space with cool people for the day! There were musicians on hand with jazzy-seasonal songs, time to hang with Robert Novogratz and Kristine Woodward of the Woodward Gallery as well as all the other staff and visitors! It really was such an awesome experience and feel so lucky to have been a part of it! As it turns out, the Woodward Gallery has held onto the piece I brought down, “Amplified” to be part of their upcoming, so stay tuned to hear more about that!

So grateful to be a small part of this amazing project, many thanks to the Woodward Gallery for the recommendation, to Robert for spending so much of his day with me, you are so kind and real, and to all the friends, family and visitors who came out! For more on the day and the other artists featured, see the Woodward Gallery’s site,  and the Novogratz’ blog, Cheers!
