It was a surprise today when I pulled up my Blog to see that my last posting was 2 months ago. When so much is packed into one's life, days become weeks and weeks become months. But it has been interesting and active times!
Having the opening of my solo show in Newport, Oregon was one of the big events. The series, Educate the Girls of the World represents 16 paintings focusing on my greatest interests education, equality, and women's rights. After matting and framing all of these pieces, I was able to display and see all of this series in one place.
Newport Visual Art Center scheduled a reception and art talk, which was a first for me. This exhibit has also been given an extension and will be on display until the end of August. If you are at the coast, drop in and see my art. Olive Street Gallery is in the Performing Arts Center, 777 W Olive St, Newport, OR 97365, Tues-Fri, 10am-5pm. From there, the exhibit will move on to Albany for the month of September.
Tied in with my show was a wonderful workshop at the Visual Art Center. The classroom is the best ever, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. I also have to give kudos to the great group of artist who took the workshop.
And that about wraps it up. If you've made it all the way to the end of this very long post, here is your reward.
