Marine Arts Gallery, October 13th – November 5th- Extended!

Update!, My work being exhibited at The Marine Arts Gallery in Marblehead, MA is being extended a few weeks!

The 47 year established gallery is in a new, year-old space after selling their former property to the Peabody Essex Museum for their major expansion. There is quite a range of my work being shown including some of my largest pieces, at close to 3′ x 4′, to small works and studies at 6″ x 6″.

This has been my first exhibition on the North Shore and so far it has been a fantastic experience! We had a very successful opening night on the 13th with great responses and reactions, not to mention getting to know some of the local art community. The gallery has a high caliber group of regional artists and it has so far been wonderful to work with them.

While some work has sold, there is still plenty to see (more than 20 pieces) if you are in the Salem/Marblehead area. I’m not sure exactly the closing date as it may depend on the wee babe, but will keep you posted!

“Dunes” at South Shore Art Center Festival

Last week, the South Shore Art Center informed me that my small work, “Dunes”, had been awarded an honorable mention at this year’s Arts Festival on Cohasset common. What a happy little surprise to brighten your day!

The piece is a respite from my current water-work, but in these smaller pieces I like to change things up from time to time. If you would like to come see the work, it will be in the big tent on Cohasset common for the weekend of June 17th – June 19th. There is an award ceremony for all of the prize winners at the stage on the common at 5pm on the 17th if you want to stop by and say ‘hi’ and glad a lobster roll or strawberry shortcake!

“Barrel” is 29″ x 44″ x 2″ and is part of an ongoing new series of water pieces where I’m exploring the textures and light in water at extreme close ups and angles.
