Color – Light – Passion Solo Exhibit January 22 – March 2
There are very few opportunities as an artist to see a whole collection of your work displayed in a solo exhibit. I can say it is a thrill. My exhibit at Bentley University opened last Wednesday, January 24, with a nice reception. I have 23 pieces in this exhibit, all completed during the past 18 months. Many friends and family attended, but as pleasing were those on campus who came to see what I do when I am not working as a college administrator. Their comments were so encouraging.
A year ago, this was not in my view as a possibility. I have so many paintings, but hadn’t really focused on a cohesive collection. I remember setting specific painting goals for myself in January 2017 which included attending two plein air paint-outs, joining some juried associations, revamping my website, trying to understand social media better and maybe —maybe —-investigating the possibility of a solo exhibit in the future. Big goals – all accomplished. There is true value to setting specific goals and then committing to time frames and taking action. This will be a hard act to follow! However, this year I plan to continue participating in plein air events, painting several days each week and approaching some Cape Cod galleries. I also hope to host my first two workshops – Art Escapes on the Cape – this summer. Let’s see how I do!
