Spring News from Diane Sawyer Fine Art

After a cold winter and rainy early spring the trees are bursting out green, flowers are blooming, and spring shows are everywhere. After hunkering down in my studio all winter its been a real pleasure to see the work up, celebrate, and get outside to drink in the warm weather.

I hope you can make it to one of the shows below. I look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones! Exhibition highlights of my spring season include:


Closing Party— this Sunday May 7th, from 1–4pm

Milton Art Center’s 2nd Annual Juried Exhibition

March 24th– May 20, 2017

It was my pleasure to be the Coordinator of this diverse and exciting show at the Milton Art Center (MAC), featuring the work of more than 40 artists. It was great working with juror Brian Goslow of Artscope Magazine, and meeting so many talented artists from all over the region.

Finally, I am looking forward to a trip by bike and train through France this summer. I’m planning on doing a lot of sketching, gathering new inspiration to carry me through next fall and winter.


Happy Painting!!
