My Solo Show is Here!

Saturday, March 11, will be the opening of my solo show at the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts!  The gallery is located at 401 Canal Place in beautiful Little Falls, New York.  The opening runs from 2-4 pm and the show will be up through April 8th with gallery hours of Wednesday-Saturday from noon to 4 pm.

I will have 26 pieces on display, including 3 new drawings shown for the first time.  This solo show was given as an award in the MVCA 2016 juried show, "Full Circle", for my entry "The Beet Goes On".  Here I am as proud recipient!

Crandall Library Juried Show!

My piece, "High Noon at Three Forks", was recently awarded one of 5 Juror's Choice Awards at the North Country Arts Juried Art Show, held annually in the Second Floor Gallery at the Crandall Library - 251 Glen Street, Glens Falls, NY.  The show runs through the end of December.

This drawing was a big challenge, but I do love trying to capture old silver and glassware and the magic created by a mirrored image is always intriguing.  For this one, a single ornate fork collides with a beam of light and suddenly three forks compete for the spotlight.

A very happy and excited PS on the Arkell juried show.  Silk Road Stroll was awarded the Juror's Choice Award for 2016.  Check out previous post for this tribute to all things Asian-theme piece.

Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts

The new Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts recently opened its juried fall show.  The theme was "Transitions" and my decaying auto piece, "Bones in the Woods" was juried in and awarded 2nd prize!  I felt that the subject really fit the theme as the manmade reverted to nature as part of the endless cycle.

Lake Placid 2016

My whimsy piece, "Playing Hookey", was accepted for the Lake Place Center for the Arts 2016 juried show.  I really like this piece and enjoyed composing and working on it.  A dignified, stately and solemn rooster teacher with his row of egglet pupils - all except one, hiding under the bridge having a day of hookey!

MVCA Solo Show in 2017

A new piece, "The Beet Goes On", was accepted in the 2016 Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts 2016 juried art show and was chosen for the award of a March 2017 solo show.  The theme of the juried show was "Full Circle" and I had decided to compose a still life of the life cycle of beets - from seed packet to harvested vegetable to canned product on the store shelf.  I chose Beets for the bright color and contrast with foliage and packaging.  It was challenging because I usually work with inanimate objects.
