Working in the print studio at the South Shore Art Center in Cohasset, MA is a weekly exercise that helps to keep me creating artwork on a consistent basis while connecting with other local printmakers. As a Gallery Artist I have been invited to submit a piece for the upcoming Gallery Artist Showcase that opens May 29- June 12, 2015 in the Dillon Gallery. The opening reception is Friday, May 29 from 6 to 8 pm. My submission is the above monotype entitled Pink Garden.
Summer is closing in and the outdoor art scene is percolating. The 60th Anniversary for the South Shore Arts Festival is slated for June 19th-21st, 2015 in Cohasset, MA. Two of my pieces have been selected to be included in the Juried Show and one in the Members’ Show.
The Arts Festival is an event not to be missed as the South Shore of Massachusetts celebrates the local creative community. The above monotype entitled meadow will find it’s way to the fine arts tent in the Juried Exhibit. Please visit.

OK-it’s Boston so we can all relate to ‘The Departed‘ but at the Distillery Gallery in the South End it takes on a new meaning as the current exhibit has a collection of works by artists that previously were members of their artists community that have, well, departed. Whenever I’ve been lucky enough to stop by the Distillery Arts Building I’m always impressed with the creativity and diverse art and artists that sift thru here.
In this current exhibit that runs through April 7, 2014 the spirits of the departed artists are pulled together for a diverse array of styles and mediums that all have a very contemporary voice. Each piece is unique to the individual artists and yet the artworks pull together as a cohesive body of work.
The Distillery has been operating for more than 20 years and has been a hot bed of an artists community inside a 19th century former rum distillery building. If it’s in Boston you can best bet there’s a history lesson to be learned. Anyway, The Distillery Building touts that it has housed nationally and internationally acclaimed artists and artisans.
Each piece in the exhibit is thought provoking and engaging. Whether it be the subject matter, compositions, color usage or the technical aspects of the pieces.
Visit The Departed exhibit while there’s still time… The gallery is open weekdays from (around) 8am through (at least) 6pm, and by appointment. They are located in The Distillery building at 516 E 2nd Street in South Boston, MA 02127.
