Swampscott Art Association is proud to announce the Spring Member Exhibit which is being held at ReachArts in Swampscott, where I am the Featured Artist Registry Member this month. Here is how ReachArts describes themselves on their website:
“ReachArts is an artistic hub in Swampscott where the community creates, collaborates, exhibits, performs, educates and learns.
We transcend difference in culture, age, ethnicity and economy by fostering a passion for artistic expression that can be shared, respected and appreciated by all.”
My entry in the exhibit is my painting, Knowles Landing (acrylic, 16″x22″) which I painted en plein air at the beautiful Knowles Landing in Gloucester, MA. My husband Tom and I spent an idyllic afternoon there on a hot summer day. Tom sat in the shade and read while I painted as fast as I could before the tide went out and the sun changed position too much! Just as I finished folding up my easel and was closing the paint palette, those two beautiful birds flew into view. It is as if they saw that my painting needed a little bit more!
ReachArts, 89 Burrill St, Swampscott, MA from May 1 to May 11, 2022. The opening reception will be held Sunday, May 1 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
