Summer Exhibit and Art Sale

Zoƫ Poster and I will be hosting our annual summer art exhibit here in Montrose, PA at the studio. It begins this Friday evening with a reception from 6-8pm. All are invited.

The studio is open all days Saturday June 28th through Sunday July 6th from 10am until 6pm. We are showing our latest paintings and claywork.

This year is the First Ever Big Sale. We need to make room for new artwork and entice you to take home some of the unsold pieces from years past. All pieces made in 2008 are priced as usual. Anything from 2007 or earlier is reduced at least 20%...maybe much more if the frame has a little ding or we are just tired of looking at it. There will be several watercolors from the 90's that were never exhibited...things taken from my private collection. There will be a few art supplies and art books, too.

Daily door prizes will be given to the first person who answers the art trivia question correctly.

And, as if that is not enough, you can set up your easel and paint in the garden outside the studio...or just look over someone else's shoulder and watch them paint, sketch, draw!

First Place Painting Award

Autumn Mist wins first place for painting! real prize money! The show is called Art in the Barn; 45 paintings and sculptures were juried into the show which runs June 6 through 15 in the Museum Barn at The Lands at Hillside Farm in Shavertown, PA. It is a real working farm and agricultural estate which is undergoing restoration for the historical and cultural resource of the community. 570-696-4500

My pastel painting is of some barns and heifers on a farm near here in Susquehanna County. It was developed in the studio working from my memory and my photos. I am pleased with being able to capture the warm overcast atmosphere of a fall morning. I am glad it has been recognized with an award...especially in the light of the other high quality paintings in the exhibit.
