The Verrill Dana law firm based here in Portland commissioned me to create two 36 x 48 inch paintings for their beautiful, newly renovated offices. They were delivered this month and are hanging in the main 9th floor conference room in their offices at 1 Portland Square.
The paintings are loosely based on the Portland waterfront, with a couple of recognizable landmarks such as the Eimskip crane which dominates the western waterfront, and the Ocean Gateway Terminal building to the east.
It was great to work in a larger scale and I look forward to doing more!
I’m excited to be showing at this new gallery in California. Gallery owner Michael Barba purchased one of my monoprints at the Meca art sale last spring and got in touch afterwards about showing my work. He stopped by my studio this fall and selected these 2 for the opening exhibit, “The Depth of Perception”. Fun to have my work traveling all the way to Australia!
I have 2 pieces in the Monotype Guild of New England’s “Down East” exhibition at the Saco Museum. Catherine Kernan and her daughter Josephine Graf juried the exhibit and my piece “Construction Zone” won first place! The show is up through October 28th.
Pleased to have my working waterfront paintings and my urban monoprints on exhibit at the Green Lion Gallery in Bath, ME. Thanks to all who came out on opening night. Exhibition is up through September 10th.
My monoprint, Urban Salvage, is on exhibit at the Cotuit Center for the Arts on Cape Cod as part of the exhibition, Marking Time, Boston Printmakers 70th anniversary show. Since they hung it next to the bar (and by the hallway that leads to the restrooms) everyone is sure to get a good look at it!
Here’s a link to all the works in the exhibit which runs through September 16th.
Spent a terrific week in July at Meca’s Stephen Pace House residency in Stonington with my critique group. We meet monthly to look at and talk about each other’s work. This year we decided to apply for the residency… the big challenge – finding a week in the summer where we were all available! But we mostly pulled it off, with 7 of the 8 of us attending.
I was only about 4 hours off the plane from Iceland when the Meca Collect art sale opened up for preview night. The new president of Meca, Laura Freid, was introduced and spoke to the packed house. Many thanks were given to Stu Kestenbaum for his excellent job filling in as interim president this past year. I am thrilled that all 3 of my pieces in the sale sold…2 to local collectors and one has gone all the way out to Southern California!
