August 28: The Grand Opening and Premiere of the Society of Animal Artists Exhibit begins today at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute in Jamestown, NY. 

I am, unfortunately, not able to attend the opening of what is always a wonderful event! But am most pleased to have my painting "Through the Shoals" selected for inclusion among this prestigious group of international animal artists' work in such a wonderful venue.

This piece represents so much of the last ten years of my life; starting with the Don Eckelberry Award, from the Society of Animal Artists (SAA), sponsoring my first of many visits to Trinidad & Tobago (home and inspiration of these lovely flamingos), to years later, when these same birds took on additional symbolism for me after successful breast cancer treatment — with their pink ribbon-like necks — to the present, having this painting exhibiting with group that started off this emotional, wonderful, crazy, life affirming, ten year roller coaster ride.

New Hope Arts Member Exhibit

August 22: Opening reception at New Hope Arts in PA, and it seemed fun was had by all. I think there were about 100 different paintings, sculptures, digital and photographic works of all kinds—something for everyone. I had a nice time talking to fellow artists and collectors alike, and had the nice surprise of winning the award for "Works on Paper" for my painting "Surveyor".  The juror for the exhibit was Rodger LaPelle of Rodger LaPelle Gallery in Philadelphia's Old City.

Now my focus is back on my "Watermarks" a duo exhibit across the river  in Lambertville, NJ opening September 10... which will showcase quite a few new works. Please click here for details.

After the disappointment of our "Art Melange" show being canceled, I've refocused and have been busy getting paintings ready for "Watermarks" a show that opens September 10 at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville. This will be the first showing for quite a bit of new work which I'm looking forward to showing.

I've also shipped two paintings to two different international juried shows which I'm proud of, one for the Artists for Conservation exhibit in Vancouver Canada ("Twist")— the other for the Society of Animal Artists in Jamestown NY ("Through the Shoals").

Beyond that I'm participating in the New Hope Arts member show in New Hope PA, starting August 22nd. A small group exhibit at Princeton Brain Spine, in Princeton, NJ, as well as giving a workshop in October. Then getting ready for the Artists' Gallery Winter exhibit! I have to say I love being this busy and involved with all these wonderful activities. I hope to see you at one or more of these venues. I will be posting more images and information on these and other events soon!
