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

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):

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!
