“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!

New series: Mercury

I’ve been working on a new group of water paintings where silvery light played of the ocean one night as the sun was setting off of Peggoty Beach. There were lots of great shots, so far, I have three ‘Mercury’ pieces which will all be in my upcoming solo show at The Lucky Finn which opens June 26th and runs through July 14th.

South Shore Style TV Interview!

Had to share that my first TV interview for South Shore Style TV is now being aired on SCTV (Channel 8 for all you Scituate folks!). I’m including a link to the weekly schedule if you want to check out the air times. However, for all the the non-Scituate peeps and device inclined, here’s the YouTube links:

I got the chance to meet the awesome production team including  executive producer, Dana Duggan, and host/executive producer John Roser who came to my studio this winter to talk about my process and working as an artist. The show is three segments long featuring local business owners of the South Shore. The first segment is on the Mill Warf Restaurant, and the second is The Lucky Finn cafe, a new gallery and cafe, both are here in Scituate and I am the third in the show. Coincidentally, I have a solo show opening June 26th at The Lucky Finn, so please check out their segment as well and join us for the opening! (It’s 6-8pm)

Thanks again to Dana & John, you were so fun to work with and made it an awesome experience!

Cheers!
