Summer in the studio is usually busy for us. Scurrying off to catch the light for en plein air painting, traveling here and there to see other artists events and getting work finished for our own shows tends to fill most of our days.
This summer has been an extraordinarily busy one and it doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon.
Shall I go on or are you as tired as I am now? Fall will bring more activity and more exhibit opportunities so I’ll save those for another day.
The Opening Reception for the Solo Show's at Southern Vermont Art Center was a huge success! So many people turned out to meet the ten artists selected to participate in the event.
It was wonderful to meet so many new people and make some wonderful connections for future exhibits.
Artists Ruck Goldreyer, Amy Hook-Therrien, Danielle Klebes, Lynn D. Pratt, Chalice Mitchell, Terry Teitelbaum, George Van Hook, Susan White, Susan Bayard Whiting, and Robert Whiting each are exhibiting in the Solo Shows. It's a great mix of medium and genre. Don't miss this exhibit. It is up from May 25 until July 14.
I wanted to share a great event the CiviCure is putting on May 4th.
Here is a link to the PDF poster.
Its a great event and a wonderful cause. Do Not Miss It!

Despite the varied weather conditions the attendance at the Fall Members Exhibit at Southern Vermont Art Center was excellent.
Robert and I haven't been members of SVAC for a few years and we are thrilled to be associated again.
The works exhibited covered every genre, every medium and subject matter. Walking from room to room we were astonished by the scope of the talent exhibited.
If you are near Manchester Vermont, don't miss this exhibit. It's worth a few hours of your time to discover what these artists have to offer.
The exhibit runs until November 18, 2018.
The end of the year has always been the busiest time for us and I suspect that’s true for most artists and artisans. Here we’ve been pushing last minute studio finishes for exhibits that have been planned for some time. This year is no acceptation. We just finished wrapping up 24 pieces of art that are distributed between Albany, NY and Manchester, Vermont.
One big disappointment last month was the notice in the mail that Robert’s work had not been selected to participate in the ASA Landscape for Landsakes exhibit. This was doubly disappointing since this very large piece is one that he had worked on since last year. “Yoke” is 30 x 40 inches and has so many images of people and things of Washington County NY (included in Robert's Gallery page). Alas, it’s not in the exhibit. He won’t ever submit for the exhibit again…….very discouraging. I’m not sure if I will submit again either. It’s a great cause. However, for every piece that is sold during the exhibit ASA retains 50%. I’m thinking I’d be better off to donate some money and not work so hard toward filling their walls. Granted there are a lot of people who see the work but to date I’ve never had anyone buy art through our studio as a result of their seeing my work at Landscapes for Landsakes.
Robert and Susan Whiting will open their timberframe studio by appointment
