Happy Earth Day! I hope all of you are enjoying the spring weather and being mindful. In the spirit of that I was chosen to be in an exhibit at the Greene County Council on the Arts (Catskill, NY). “Off the Walls: From Junk to Art” The guest curator was sculptor Willie Cole and the theme is recycled arts. Appropriately the opening reception is this evening 5-7pm. This show will remain up from today (April 22nd) through May 27th. I hope you’ll have a chance to visit the gallery. 


You will also be able to find some of my lampshades on the second floor of the gallery. 

Crafts & Art for the holidays

My award winning painting “tried in vain” and two other pieces of mine also done in the last year are showing at the Greene County Council on the Arts in Catskill, NY. If you aren’t familiar with the Annual Salon show it’s an experience not to be missed. Loads of artwork of all medium, styles, and subjects, hung high to quite low and all snug up together. What also makes it unique is that if there’s a piece you fancy and want to buy the staff cashes you out and takes it off the wall right then and there. That means you could find some wonderful gifts while supporting local artists and the art council. Here’s a photo of us hanging the show…

And my walnut ink drawing of a seated figure is on the left in this photo (the brown wood frame).

The Salon show is up now through early January.

This year I opted to sign up to be at a smaller craft fair. So if you want to see my lampshades (and me of course) come to “Christmas by the River” in Coxsackie this Sunday December 4th. I’ll be in the old fire house on South St, just go to the end of Reed and turn right. I’m looking forward to seeing some of you there.
