Yes, it is THAT time again! Eeeek!
I am starting to sneak in a few of my ornaments here and there. These are always incredibly popular, so please contact me early if you are interested in purchasing any this year!
Every now and then I get an urge to do a more "traditional" landscape. This is a scene from northern Maine. This painting will be available in the Art Room at Coolidge Hall at the Topsfield Fair, October 2-12.
I just had to paint a Hilltop sign for the displays at Farley's of Newburyport. I need to stop by this week to see just how that used it. It is so much fun to take part in a collaboration with a different kind of business - I'd love to see more art in all kinds of venues!
As part of the collaboration between Newburyport Art Association and Farley's of Newburyport, I was selected to exhibit some of my selected paintings at Farley's. Today I dropped off 8 pieces that the staff stylist had picked out, and returned this evening for an artist Meet & Greet. It was fun to see how they displayed the paintings for the reception. Here is an example:
Isn't this a great idea? It is a win-win....the store gets some new ideas to build displays around, and the artist gets some good exposure. And the work is available for sale as well. Tomorrow, Farley's Master Stylist will more fully integrate the work into their windows and displays. I can't wait to see what he comes up with!
Back to the old Fowles sign...love the shadows that the neon tubes make!
The Fowles sign is a Newburyport landmark.....and rather apropos for the little exhibition I have coming up! I am thrilled to be a part of the partnership between the Newburyport Art Association and Farley's of Newburyport! My work will be exhibited as part of the creative displays in the store and in the window of Farley's for two weeks this month. There will be a "Meet the Artist" reception on 9/8, from 6-7:30 and my work will be displayed from 9/9 - 9/23. There is more information about the collaboration here: NewburyportNews
