October 6, 2018 News from the Studio
Saturday, October 13th (rain date October 14th) is Art in the Park taking place in Van Saun Park NJ from 11:00am - 3:30pm with live music, a food truck and 100 local Bergen County artists exhibiting their latest paintings, drawings, photographs and mixed media artwork. It is inspiring to see so much creativity and to be able to network with a diverse group of artists at all stages of their careers! Having participated in recent years, I look forward to getting feedback from judges, the pubic and other artists. This year I will be exhibiting my just finished ocean themed oil paintings so stop by and let me know what you think!
Here are my 2017 and 2016 prize winning exhibitions. "Ocean & Fish" features iconography from a recurring dream of tidal waves - loosely based on the Jersey Shore's Manasquan Beach, a beloved summer destination. The Ballet Rehearsal Series was inspired when my daughter started performing in dance recitals. Attending dress rehearsals I was struck by to the expressions of young girls anticipating their moment on stage along with the interesting stage lighting effects. Seeing these 2 exhibits side by side highlights their very different color palettes - cool greens and blues for "Ocean & Fish" in contrast with warm reds for the the "Ballet Rehearsal".
