Main Street Mural ~~ CuriousCity Museum

It is with the greatest delight that I introduce my newest mural to the CuriousCity Children’s Museum! The mural is a stylized illustration of some of Peabody’s most iconic buildings arrayed along Main Street. It is wrapped around a corner in the museum’s temporary location at the Leather Museum at 205 Washington Street, Peabody, MA. This mural joins my other murals in the EpiCurious and Curious World exhibits.

The mural includes City Hall, the old Post Office (currently Arc Works) on Foster Street, the Fire Station, Civil War Monument, Public Library, and O’Shea Mansion. Along the bottom of the mural are an array of cars and trucks to inspire play.

Tree Show ~~ 1/11/20 – 2/2/20

Marblehead Arts Association will present Tree Show, an exhibit of artist members’ paintings of trees, which will run from January 11 until February 2, 2020. The opening exhibit will be held on Sunday, January 12 from 2:00 till 4:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

Trees are my favorite subject, and I selected my painting, Twitter (acrylic, 16″ x 20″) for this exhibit. The painting shows a winter tree bare of leaves, but alive with branches full of colorful tweeting birds.

The show was the brainchild of artist member, D.L. Kaulback, and it will be hung in the Dining Room and Hendrick Gallery of Marblehead Arts Association’s Hooper Mansion at 6 Hooper Street, Marblehead. All the entry fees for this exhibit will be donated to the Tree Committee of Sustainable Marblehead. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday & Sunday, noon-5 pm and Saturday, 10-5 pm.

Member Showcase 11/8 – 12/15/2019

Salem Arts Association is excited to close our 2019 exhibition schedule with a showcase of member artwork. All current Salem Arts members were invited to bring in our best work to show the community what we have to offer in all of our diverse styles and artists disciplines.

I have 5 entries in the show:

All Year Long, acrylic, 14″ x 30″ framed. This painting was inspired by a Chinese panel I saw at the Peabody Essex Museum. I tried to replicate the metallic background with copper, gold and bronze acrylic paint.

November, Salem; acrylic, 16″x20″. This painting is the view of my neighbors’ houses and leafless trees out my kitchen window a couple of years ago. The yellow house is now repainted gray, and the white house’s roof is now rust with solar panels!

Essex Marsh, acrylic, 4″ x 12″. This painting is a tiny part of a larger painting I did of Cox Marsh in Essex, on location.

(Shown) Salem Trolley 1910, acrylic, 9″ x 12″. This painting is one of the illustrations I did for In the Middle written by Virginia Frazier. I remember riding of these growing up (not in Salem) and the driver would have to stop the trolley to get out and rehook the car to the cable when we went over some bumps in the road.

The Swing, acrylic, 8″ x 8″. I know the rubber swings in kids’ parks are safer, but I still miss the comfort of the old wooden swings they had when I was a little girl. You could swing on these all afternoon.

The opening reception is on Friday, November 8, 2019 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Music! Refreshments! And, of course, lots of art.

Salem Art Association is located at The Bridge at 211, 211 Bridge Street, Salem, MA 01970. Gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays from 12 noon until 5:00 p.m. Email us at Info@SalemArts.org, or call  SAA at 978-745-4850.

GALA Dark Arts Oct. 3 – Nov. 4, 2019

GALA is presenting their show, Dark Arts from October 3 until November 4, 2019. This exhibit is based on a Dark Art or Halloween theme. The show’s planners were inspired by the Arts After Hours production of Carrie The Musical based on the book by Stephen King.

I have two entries in this show. Nevermore is a mixed media piece showing a stylized raven sitting on an autumn tree limb. It was inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s poem, The Raven. The artwork has a mottled metallic background on which I painted tree branches using acrylic paint. The raven and colorful fall leaves are collaged with various types of paper. It is 20″ x 24″ framed. The second entry is Nocturne, a 10″ x 20″ acrylic painting on 1-1/2″ deep gallery wrapped canvas. It shows a wolf howling at a full moon. This painting was inspired by a family of coyotes living near my house!

The opening reception for Dark Arts will be held on Friday, October 4 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. A $5 donation is requested. GALA is located at 25 Exchange Street, Lynn, MA. Please go to galleriesatlynnarts.org for more information.

Salem Dark Arts Show 10/4 – 11/3/2019

Dark Arts is Salem Arts Association’s seasonal exhibit exploring Salem’s history with witchcraft, religion, and Halloween festivities. And we can’t have dark without light so be free to share your fun art too. Salem Arts has encouraged any local artists to explore their interpretation of these themes in various mediums and styles.

My entry is Stairway to Heaven, a mixed media piece combining a charcoal study of a skeleton with collage, using the sheet music to Stairway to Heaven, composed by Robert Plant and Jimmy Page for Led Zeppelin. This artwork is framed and matted to dimensions of 20″ x 24″.

Dark Arts has been juried by Nathan Lewis, Director of Exhibitions and Public Programs, Montserrat College of Art.

Nathan Lewis is a nationally exhibiting fine artist, curator, instructor, and lecturer; having been involved in events at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis Institute of the Arts, Northern Spark, and more. He received his BFA in studio art from the University of Texas–Austin and his MFA in Visual Studies–Photography from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. His personal work deals with the paranormal and uses the uniqueness of photographic processes to allude to the otherworldly.

The opening reception for Dark Arts will be held Friday, October 4 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public and will feature art, music and refreshments.

Salem Arts Association Gallery is located at 211 Bridge Street, Salem, MA 01970. Gallery hours are weekends noon until 5:00 p.m.
