The Danvers Art Association is staging a virtual Fall Art Show on the DAA website, www.thedanversart.org. which goes up November 9, 2020. Members have submitted art in many different mediums. Because of safety concerns about COVID, there will be no reception or in-person gallery time.
I have 2 entries: Twitter, acrylic, 16″x 20″, $350 –Psyched to receive Second Prize!!! I had painted a smaller version of Twitter, inspired by bright birds in a leafless winter tree, tweeting in the morning near my window. I think it was cardinals and blue jays. It made me think of how fun it would be to paint even more colorful birds against a gray sky on a larger sized canvas.
Black Lives Matter, pastel 14″ x 18″ matted & framed, $250. This pastel was done in a virtual Zoom workshop I took at Salem Arts Assoc, taught by the fabulous artist Janet Schwartz. She had all of us do renditions of her powerful photo of the BLM march in D.C. and it was fascinating to see the many renditions of the same subject from different artists.
