Early Summer Shows and Awards
I am very pleased to have been included in 2 juried pastel society shows, and one online competition this past June and July.
Connecticut Pastel Society’s members show Purely Pastels opened June 17th, at Lyme Art Association’s Goodman Gallery, in Lyme CT. My piece, Crown Jewel, won the Bronze Award for Excellence. I am very honored to receive this award, one of the top awards in an extensive list! I am also pleased to report that the piece sold on the second day of the exhibit!
Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod’s annual show For Pastels Only on Cape Cod opened Saturday June 18th at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, in South Yarmouth, MA. This is the 5th consecutive year I have been included in this wonderful national show.
Dive In (Study), below, was included in the exhibit.
2016 UArt Online Competition
My piece Safe Harbor was juried into the 2016 UArt Online Competition. Almost 600 pieces were submitted to this show, and only 100 were accepted. It is a fabulous collection of work, by an amazing collection of artists. I was honored to be included!
