I had all but abandoned this blog for the past year (oops!). While maintaining two jobs and going through the process of buying and renovating my first house, painting was put on the back burner yet again. But I'm pleased to announce that things have settled, my new (rudimentary) studio is set up and I'll have new paintings to share very soon!
One impetus for getting behind the easel again is a show I'm participating in next month: ArtPeers Fall Festival. The show will run September 9–11, and includes around 100 local artists in Grand Rapids. Work will be displayed (and performed in) businesses along Wealthy Street in East Hills. It's the best part of GR, if you ask me!
My work will be shown at Art of the Table, a lovely little shop specializing in — you guessed it — kitchen and dining wares. They have a sweet beer, wine and cheese selection, and it's one of my favorite places to find last-minute gifts (Shhh, don't tell anyone!).
Location is subject to change, and opening reception details to follow...
