Pop-up Poolside Paintings Preview Party

I held a Pop-up Poolside Paintings Preview Party last weekend. What is this event? It is a combination of studio reception, part artist talk, and part just summertime fun! I thought up the idea a few months ago when I was thinking of combining two things I love to do –art and having people over for fun & food– as a milestone and celebration for completing 10 paintings in a new series on time. I will get things done if I make a deadline for myself, and having a party to invite people to in order to get paintings done seemed like a good and fun idea.

The Elements Exhibition @ Warwick Museum of Art (Aug. 12, 2011)

It was an honor to participate in such a lovely exhibition and lively art opening as The Elements Exhibition at the Warwick Museum of Art. The Elements featured artworks within the theme of wind, earth, water and fire. Two of my paintings were selected through the juried process for participation in the show. Looking around at a of the other artwork, I was very impressed with the level of talent exhibited within the space. I also got to meet some other fantastic artists such as photographer, Carol Proulx, sculptor, Neal Personeus, and painter, Carol Scarvotto. The organizers of the show and opening, Courtney Rose and Patti Martucci did an excellent job and it was a pleasure to be present to meet other artists and art appreciators. I hope to do another show sometime at the Warwick Art Museum in the future.
