The art show at Belle Grove is FAST approaching. Get all the details here.  It’s hard to believe it was January when we told you about the invitation to show art at the Belle Grove Plantation.  You can read about that here.  Make plans now to come.  There will be something going on each day in addition to the art sale that benefits Belle Grove.  We will be having two Paint Parties….one that the iconic image of the Signal Knob, the view from the porch at Belle Grove and one is for all ages (Wildflowers) so get the kids rounded up and come join in.  You can click here to register for the Paint Parties.

I’m excited to announce that I have been invited to show my art at Belle Grove this June along with two other regional artists. We visited the house yesterday to meet and discuss the show.  It’s the first time they are going to display local art throughout the house.  I’m so excited.

This beautiful old home is a terrific place to show art and for people to see a wonderful example of a manor house.  We will keep you updated on all the details as we get closer to the show on June 22-24, 2018.  There will be an “Meet the Artists” Reception on June 23rd as well as classes and workshops on June 23rd and 24th.  It will be a great time to visit Belle Grove.

Last January I shared a post with you about my friend Jean Barbour.  She attended art classes with me for  several years.  You can read that here.  Yesterday I had the great pleasure of helping her husband, Chuck Barbour, hang Jean’s art in a display at our library.  Her work looks so nice hanging there.  And it was fun to reminisce about the pieces as we hung them.  She enjoyed painting so much.  She enjoyed her family and travel and often painted from photos she took while on trips with her family.20171102_1645561257582090.jpg  It was always a delight to have Jean in class.  We miss her.  Jean’s art will be on display at Samuels Public Library through the month of November.

Yesterday at the Capon Springs Artists Retreat we created Paper Paintings.  And it was thrilling that so many came to give it a try….26 paper painters to be exact!  Terrific!!!  What fun we had creating wonderful animals, flowers and scenes using only torn and cut paper.

Then last night everyone displayed the work they have done since Sunday and we had live music for our “Art Show”.

It was terrific.  If you didn’t come to the Artists Retreat you should KICK YOURSELF!  It is so much fun.  The good news is we have dates for the one in the spring….May 20-24, 2018.  Mark your calendar NOW!
