Sketching, Painting, and Pouring Shows
I must have blinked and missed half of spring. The last two months have flown by at lightning speed. I have been sketching, painting, and pouring my little ocean loving heart out in my art studio. In addition to blissfully focusing my creative attention on warm seas whilst the weather is still warming up outside, I have already had an active spring show schedule.
In April, "Delight" was included in the Small Works Exhibit, curated and juried by the Lemonade Stand Gallery, at the Sanger Gallery in Key West Florida.
It marked the first time that my work was shown in Florida. I was delighted when a collector decided to give this wavy little piece a home.
Next up, this sketchbook made its way all the way to The Sketchbook Project at the Brooklyn Art Library in New York. It is permanently on display in the worlds largest collection of sketchbooks. If you are in the area, be sure to pop in and have a flip through my book. The call number is 360.18-8 and it should also be digitized to view online before the summer. In the meantime, if you'd like, you can watch a quick flip through of the entire sketchbook here.
The Brooklyn Art Library also invited artists to take part in the Infinite Sketch Exhibition, on May 11 where this piece was included in the show.
The AnnMarie Sculpture Garden and Arts Center is a Smithsonian Institute Affiliate in Solomons Island, Maryland. It is a vibrant arts hub that includes over 30 works on loan from the Smithsonian Institute and the National Gallery of Art.
I was honoured and excited to be invited to submit my work to their juried group show that is all about water.
Ebb & Flow: The Power of Water Exhibition opens May 24 and runs all summer long until September 2.
"Coastal Moment" is for sale through the gallery during the exhibition.
