77th Annual Moonlight and Miracles

I was lucky to join fellow artists Jen Kelly, who put this event together, Diane Scott, Vincent Crotty and Karl Nestleberger at the Marriot Hotel in Quincy for the 77th Annual Moonlight and Miracles Gala to raise funds for cancer awareness. Jen had prints of our work made into cards to sell for this wonderful event. Tim Wakefield of the Red Sox and Lisa Hughes of WBZ News were the celebrities on hand to support the South Shore Hospital. Jerry Bennett and the Sultans of Swing was the band and they were incredible. The whole place was rocking! What a great time!

Art Exhibition in Abington

Sean Flood ( welcomed me to join his friends in an exhibition that included a great jazz band in her home town of Abington.
Friends from all over came to see this ecclectic group of artists. This was something you think you would find in the city yet it was less than 2 miles from my house on the fourth floor of an old warehouse. I sold my painting "Springtime at the Trinity". This was a great way to spend my birthday!!!

Got-Art? Opening Night

Thursday night was the opening for a wonderful show in Holliston, Ma by Got-Art? I was greeted by gallery director Julie Jenkins and her amazing energy in a wonderful historical barn lit up like a christmas tree. Many people came out to see the show with quite a few of them leaving with art in hand from this 4 day show.
I was really impressed with a young artist named Sean Flood who painted some great large cityscapes. Turns out he has a studio in Abington! Now how come I never heard of him before the show. I can't wait to see the work he produces as he matures!
There was food and music and great art to be had! I really enjoyed myself and felt grateful to had been invited to such an eclectic show
