Going to the dogs in Northampton

Too smart. Too cute. Loaded with attitude. And don’t ask me to give you my paw. The answer is no.

Artist Jane Lund has put together a show of paintings, photography, and sculpture called Animals in Art: An Invitational Exhibition at the Northampton Center for the Arts. The show’s intention is to celebrate our furry (and not so furry) animal friends.

If my dog Lady chose to read this blog, she would insist that an unlimited supply of food treats and praise be provided to all the animals depicted in the show.

Apparently there are more than fifty artists in the show including Pam Barlett, Rachel Folsom, Stephanie Gerilamatos, Amy Johnquest, Robert Markey, Ali Osborn, Betsy Stone, Gregory Thorp, Tom Ulrich, and Frank Ward (and one of our past Sculpture/Installation Fellows, Ariel Kotker, contributed a lambscape). The exhibition runs from December 10 through December 31, 2009. The opening reception will take place this coming Friday, December 11th from 5-8pm and will include a performance by West County Jazz.

Gallery Henoch, NYC Still Life Show
By Kathy Erskine Jenkins
Ellen Wineberg is in a group show called "Still Lifes" at the prestigious Gallery Henoch in the super-trendy Chelsea area of NYC .  This past Saturday was the opening party and I was lucky enough to attend.  Ellen's work is fabulous! Colorful, warm and witty like the artist. She is in very good company, too, with painters such as Steve Smulka, Janet Rickus, and Robert Jackson.  
 Gallery Henoch, 555 West 25th Street, NY 10001 917.305.0003 or at October 3-31

Off to the Ballinglen Arts Foundation  in County Mayo, Ireland to paint for 2 weeks.
We'll have a stone cottage on the cliffs.
Traveling with Catherine Kernan on, gulp, the wrong side of the road.
Hoping to do watercolor collaborations with the wind and the rain.

Today's view of the studio. Many teddies. It's a series about possibilities and choices.

Fun with Photoshop filters, here's Shepherd Fairey!
A wonderful Sol Lewitt exhibit takes up 3 floors of its own building at Mass MoCA in North Adams, see his huge wall paintings, plans, and a video on how it was created in that space.
