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.

This past week, while working in the print studio, I got to a point where I was focused on a piece that just wasn’t resonating for me. My (mentor/teacher), Esther Maschio, gently told me that the only way to get to a better place was to keep working. After rifling through one of my sketchbooks I found a figure drawing that I had done a few months ago that always appealed to me-so I started rolling ink on a plate while using my leftover palette of blues, whites, graphite grey and black. It was like jumping off a diving board after standing still for too long. There was nothing to lose and my experimentation ranged from painting, to scratching, to applying a trace type of drawing. It was a very ‘in the moment’ experience. Above are the results from two stages of the process-moody & blue.
Inspiration brews during Monday lunches with my art buddies. Working in the printmaking studio, sharing ideas and encouraging each other on is the best way to start the week. No electronics-just good will, creativity and courage.
