Lots of Pictures..

I wandered the halls of the Soda Plant last weekend photographing the various art 
that premiered at Art Hop, minus the crowds.  Enjoy!

Oak Tree View
My submission to 'Represent' in the S.P.A.C.E. Gallery.

'Represent', a group show comprised of artist's affiliated with S.P.A.C.E.

Below are a couple of my favorites from this show!

The Backspace Gallery hosted the 5 & Dime again this year.
Anyone can submit.  Only rule: priced under $100

A couple of my submissions:

Hanging Plant #1

Oregon Trail

Sven, the Monster

My studio after Art Hop weekend.  

The halls of the Soda Plant held the 20 Mediums art show.
I had 2 pieces in the watercolor category: 
Perkin's Pier and How-to-Lasagna.

I'm always fascinated by the mediums I do not work in.
One of my favorite pieces under the category wood.

My absolute favorite piece in the show was under the category fiber. 
It is sheep's wool weaved and balled up.  It would look beautiful above a 
dining room table I think.  It reminds me of clouds and percipitation, and maybe 
that book about raining meatballs!

Some other great fiber pieces:

Art Hop Thanks!!

I want to extend my appreciation to everyone who made this year's
Art Hop a success.  There was a little rain on Saturday evening which 
seemed to thin the crowds for a few hours but it didn't keep people away 
all night.  Sunday, a usually mellow day, was the busiest yet (and the day
I made the most sales- go figure).  

I spent Friday hopping myself so I apologize if I missed you, but with so much
great art and music it's to hard to resist taking part.  I finished off the night at my
end result and pick up a "map" of the ceiling.  I was lucky enough to participate 
and paint a tile.  I completed my tile early on and wow was I impressed with
the finished collage of amazing artwork.  If you missed this installation it is a must see
(and the pizza rocks!).

Saturday I put in some volunteer time at S.P.A.C.E. in the morning hanging flyers, 
and putting up vinyl stickers.  It got me up and out of bed early and best of all I 
was given an awesome S.P.A.C.E. Gallery t-shirt made by a fellow collective member.
They are still for sale in the Backspace if anyone is interested.

A few days, after all the chaos of the weekend, I went around the Soda Plant 
and photographed my studio space, the gallery shows and the 20 Mediums
show in the Soda Plant hallways.  I will post some pictures of my work and a few of 
my favorite pieces by other artists in the next couple days.

****On another note****
Sunday I sold a piece from my birch bark collection that depicted a Colchester sunset
over Lake Champlain.  Unfortunately I never had a chance to get a photograph of the piece. 
If you are the painting's new owner and you happen to be reading this I would really 
appreciate if you could snap a picture of it and send me a copy.  I'd gladly give away 
any illustration print of your choosing in return for this favor.

Once again to everyone at Art Hop...THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
Until next year :)
