New England Arts for Animals

March 18th was the opening for the New England Arts for Animals exhibit of paintings of animals juried in to this show housed next to the Cold Water Creek in the Derby Shops in Hingham. People may come in and vote for their favorite paintings till the end of the month and the popular votes will appear in a calendar to raise money for this group. The opening was well attended and the guests enjoyed a harpist and a beautiful array of food. A raffle for gifts could also be bid on. It was a wonderful time given by hosts Jill and Don.

I will let you know if any of my pieces were chosen. It is a tough choice with many wonderful paintings and photos to choose from!

High Street Antiques

I just reconnected with an old friend from high school who just took over an quaint antique store in Ipswich not too far from the famous Clam Box restaurant. My friend Donato and his wife are hoping to continue the high traffic and thought that adding my artwork to his shop would help that happen.
I thought that the paintings looked great where he hung them and he assured me that he has many "new" antique gems that he will be displaying along with them. I can't wait to see the room when it is finished. I am sure with his enthusiasm and taste, it will be a success! He almost sold one piece the very same hour we hung it! Wish us both luck!!!
