02.03.14 - Please don’t walk but run to this show also bring along a female artist.

TDP_Place_Settings_SigIt is finally here, a whole wing dedicated to female artists. Why it has taken hundread of years for

such a place? I cant tell you. I can tell you that the JUDY CHICAGO show is wild. I won’t add more to that

because you must experience it for yourself. So if you have a female friend, daughter, wife or transvestite bring

them to the Elizabeth Sackler Center for Feminist Art.

The Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art is an exhibition and education environment dedicated to feminist art—its past, present, and future. Among the most ambitious, influential, and enduring artistic movements to emerge in the late twentieth century, feminist art has played a leading role in the art world over the last forty years. Dramatically expanding the definition of art to be more inclusive in all areas, from subject matter to media, feminist art reintroduced the articulation of socially relevant issues after an era of aesthetic “formalism,” while pioneering the use of performance and audiovisual media within a fine art idiom.

Canterbury Hill Gallery, a place where art lovers, art investors, and collectors go for innovative
new works in painting, crafts, and fine jewelry. The owner Meg, Lustig is grand daughter of the famous Max Kuehne. Their family has a long tradition
of art and business in a wonderful fun mix.

I show my work at the gallery. I love supporting Meg in her revival of the Rockport painting scene once again.
The up coming year Meg has some vintage Rockport parties and new artwork coming to town!
Canterbury Hill StudioGallery is down the road from the Motif #1.

Built in the 1840s as Rockport became home to a colony of artists and fishermen, the shack became a favorite subject of painters due to the composition and lighting of its location as well as being a symbol of New England maritime life. Painter Lester Hornby (1882–1956) is believed to be the first to call the shack “Motif Number 1” a reference to its being the favorite subject of the town’s painters, and the name achieved general acceptance.

06.09.12 - Abstract Painting on Mt Washington, NH peak 6822ft

Painting on this peak in the sky the only thing higher are airplanes. The paintings done here are almost at the top of the mountain. Due to the commercial feel at the top I found it best to paint slightly below the top of the mountain. The clouds acting like curtains make circular compositions showing the sky or mountain behind them. What surprises. Some tidbits about the mountain-

”The mountain pushed us off her knees.
And now her lap is full of trees.”
Robert Frost (1874-1963), U.S. poet. “The Birthplace.”

Before European settlers arrived, the mountain was known as Agiocochook, or “Home of the Great Spirit”.
