FOCUS

Last Friday Night FOCUS opened at the Butternut Gallery in Montrose, PA. It is a juried exhibit of local art "exploring our regional sense of place". Included were artworks in clay, paint, photography & various sculpture media. I think it is an exciting exhibit because it explores the breadth of vision in the area of primarily NE PA and southern tier New York state. Artists tend to send their best work when there is a chance of winning cash prizes. I know the three jurors worked hard to select the work and choose the awards. Members of business & community provided the awards.

My pastel painting "For the Birds" won an award. Many of you will recognize it as my daughter's Fig Street Garden in southside Scranton. It is 30 x 20 inch image size - framed to 39 x 29 - and priced to sell at $1600. I also have two other paintings in this exhibit: Snowy Woods & Wyalusing Creek.

Please stop in at the Butternut Gallery & Second Story Books at 42 Church Street- Thursday-Saturdays 11-5, Sundays 12-4 through May 31) to see it and all the other interesting art works. All the art is for sale (excepting those all ready purchased this past weekend, but still onview). Proceeds will benefit Susquehanna County Library and Endless Mountains Health Care building funds.

FOCUS was held to coincide with the now famous Chocolate & Wine Festival held on May 16th in downtown Montrose.

An inspiring piece! Beautiful reflection. So much foliage and each so visable. Love the depth. I should just say, I love it all!
