Works on Display

This week I learned that a small seascape (oil on linen) was accepted into the South County Art Association show . The opening reception for that show, taking place at the Helme House on Rte 138 in Kingston, is tomorrow evening. In addition, I have two paintings on display at Save the Bay in Providence, the opening reception for that show being November 17th.

Most artists are gearing up for the "small picture shows" that will occur in most artistically-minded communities across New England. Currently, I am preparing three oils that will be entered into the Cape Cod Art Association Small Picture Show a week from now. Spring Bull Gallery in Newport is also going to accept small pictures soon. If you are an artist, I don't need to remind you of the frustrations in trying to prepare for these!

still life season approaches

Next week I will begin teaching still life drawing and painting for the North Kingstown Arts Council. If you're local (a Rhode Islander) you can either obtain a flier about the Take an Arts Break classes or call 401-294-3331 for info and how to register. The fee for non residents is $80. Classes (5 of them) run on Thursdays, 7 -9 PM, starting on Oct.20. This should be a fun class emphasizing experimentation and multi-media approaches.
