Abstractions 2015 is the next exhibit at the Arts League of Lowell, ALL. This is an open juried show.

I have a soft spot for this exhibit, because this is how I came to know ALL. I think I’ve been in this exhibit 2 or maybe even 3 times in the past. Hopefully, at least one of my pieces will make the cut. (I wish I had 3 of the new series to submit, but I didn’t get them completed in time to be framed. )

These are the pieces. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

I belong to several arts organizations and I must admit that WCA-NH, Women’s Caucus for Art – New Hampshire Chapter,  is one of my favorites. (I need to tell you that story some day.)

This year we’re celebrating our 20th anniversary. Hard to believe! One of our celebrations is an upcoming exhibit in our capital, Concord, NH. We will have simultaneous exhibits in 3 separate venues. A couple of brave souls are going to sort out which pieces will go in each venue. (Glad I’m not on that committee.)

Anyway, I thought you might like a peek at what I’m submitting. I’m not sure if both pieces will be used as we’ve gotten a terrific response to this call. Once the venues are sorted, I’ll post the details of the exhibits. If you’re nearby, I hope you’ll be able to check out these exhibits. There are incredible artists in this group.

Last night, Saturday, August 29th, was the reception for “Transcending Reality”, the annual exhibit of the Abstract Artists’ Group of New England. It was a lovely reception – lots of conversation with both old friends and new acquaintances, live music by Barbara London and Rick Kress, lots of art to check out, fresh flowers as well as food & wine.
This is our largest show ever, with over 150 individual works of art by 20 artists. We even ended up with a small works wall containing lots of very affordable pieces of art 8” x 8” and even smaller. The exhibit will run through Saturday, September 5th at Newburyport Art Association, 56 Water Street, Newburyport, MA.
I’m always extremely proud of this show. Although we are not a juried group and we don’t jury the individual work, I still think that our shows are amongst the most interesting and the strongest exhibits at Newburyport Art Association.
You’ll find lots of color, lots of creativity, a variety of mediums and sizes. We have wooden sculpture, textile pieces, large oils, small oils, acrylics, collages, encaustic, mixed media, watercolor, pastels, and even mosaics. There are large pieces and small pieces and lots in between. And don’t forget to look for my mixed media collages while you’re there.

Here are a few of my pieces from the exhibit –

If you go to the exhibit, please let me know what you think.

It’s that time of year again. A couple of exhibits are ending and new ones are beginning.

Yesterday we drove to Plymouth to pick up my work from “Force of Nature – Exploring the Power of the Feminine” at Plymouth State University. It was sad to see this exhibit come down, as it was a wonderful exhibit with work from all across the country. I had hoped to get another day at the exhibit earlier this month, but the rest of my life was just too busy.

The exhibit at the Sheafe Warehouse which is part of the Prescott Art Festival will come down tomorrow. Just this weekend left to view it! If you live in the area and haven’t had a chance, it’s worth the effort to get in. Plus the location on the river is breathtaking.

Tomorrow we start another exhibit. The Abstract Artists of New England is having their annual exhibit at  Newburyport Art Association starting Tuesday, August 25 and running through Saturday, September 5th. Tomorrow evening we’ll all drop off our work and let our hanging committee do their magic. Since the gallery is closed on Mondays, Tuesday will be the first day the exhibit is open to the public.

I was very pleased to be included in the current exhibit – “Force of Nature – Exploring the Power of the Feminine” at Plymouth State University this summer. I can’t believe that the exhibit closes this week.

I got to see the exhibit twice – once when I gallery sat one evening and again when I went to the reception. It’s a truly wonderful exhibit and I had been hoping to get there again last week for another visit. Unfortunately, I was being very unrealistic about other items on my schedule and couldn’t make it work.

I suppose the next best thing to seeing an exhibit is to see the catalog. My copy arrived a few days ago and I’m pleased.

The exhibit organizers worked really hard on this exhibit and the catalog shows that. If you’d like to buy a copy, just go to the MagCloud website.

Earlier this week, several members of the New Hampshire Art Association “hanging committee” gathered at the Sheafe Warehouse to get the Prescott Park Arts Festival Open Juried Exhibit ready for public viewing. Due to unusual issues with the building, we’re a week late getting set up this year.

This is always an interesting exhibit to hang because of the setup. A large part of the exhibit goes on movable panels which we position in two rows down the length of the building. The panels are made up of pairs of hollow core doors hinged together and painted in a neutral color.  There are also spaces on the interior walls of the building for larger pieces.

This is a fun exhibit. Because of the location in the heart of the Prescott Park area and the connection with the Prescott Park Arts Festival, we see lots of traffic for this exhibit, including visitors from around the world.

If you find yourself in Portsmouth this summer, please consider stopping by for a wonderful selection of local art.

The hours are:

Monday                                     Closed
Tuesday & Wednesday            12 – 5pm
Thursday & Sunday                12 – 7pm
Friday & Saturday                  12 – 8pm

Somewhere towards the back, you’ll find  my piece –

Ethel Hills - Bands of Color #35 - Mixed Media Collage on Mat Board - 7" x 5"
