Farewell CWOS 2012

What a fun show it was! Lots of visitors, family, and friends came, among them my fabulous teacher Jane Davies of Vermont, who happened to be presenting a workshop in the area and drove over from Guilford to see the show!

Yours truly with Jane

Prepping for CWOS 2012

New Haven's annual City Wide Open Studios 2012 event is in full swing! I visited the West Cove venue yesterday, and enjoyed viewing the work of several awesome artists. This coming weekend, October 13-14, I'll be at Erector Square (Building 7 / Floor 2 / Room 7), showing these small collages and two larger works.

Art Show Receptions

I'm exhibiting on Oct. 13-14 at Erector Square, during the middle weekend of New Haven's annual  City Wide Open Studios (CWOS) event. The opening reception last night at Artspace was packed, and it was a lot of fun to see my little collage up on the wall along with the other artists' work in the main show. So exciting! My piece at Artspace is called Red Sky At Night - it and a few of the others I'll be exhibiting at Erector Square are displayed on my CWOS artist page.

Yours truly and friend Val at the Artspace reception, with my little collage "Red Sky at Night" up on the wall between us.
The Fairfield U show was a lot of fun, too! There was a good turnout in spite of the downpour. My self-portrait series was well received and generated a lot of interesting dialog.

An Abundance of Art in Connecticut

I'm participating in two art shows this month, and both are holding receptions this week. If you are in the area, please consider attending!

On Thursday, October 4, from 7:00pm to 8:30pm, the LGBTQ and Allies Art Show at Fairfield University will have a meet and greet with the artists.

On Friday, October 5, from 5:00pm to 8:00 pm, the annual three-weekend New Haven City Wide Open Studios (CWOS) event will open with a reception at Artspace. Although I am exhibiting on Oct. 13-14 at Erector Square, CWOS opens this weekend, and each of the artists, myself included, has one piece in the main show at Artspace.
