Spring vacation has come and gone and I spent most of it a) recovering from what I'm pretty sure was The Black Plague and b) getting stuff ready for upcoming art shows.
First, my middle school student show is coming up on May 8, 2014 from 6:30-8 p.m. The annual F.M.S. Festival of the Arts will be a fantastic event as always and you can read more about it on Facebook Events or on my teacher web site. It is FREE and you will enjoy lots of art, music, photography, books, and more!
The second show on the books is the 55th Annual Acushnet Art Week Show on May 17 & 18 where you can see my original illustrations on exhibit for the FIRST TIME EVER. Usually, illustrations get scanned and used and then stashed away, so this was a lot of work to get everything (about 30 pieces) matted and framed and ready to hang. So that's how I spent my April vacation!
And there's more! ... I will be signing and selling books at the show on Sunday the 18th. As always, the award winning art works from the F.M.S. Festival of the Arts by my students will be on display, too. If you are an Acushnet resident and want to submit works for the juried show, or for more info about show times, see the Acushnet Art Show blog.
Here are some pics of the exhibit pieces ready to hang and starting to be packed. If you want to see them all, you've got to come by the show! Hope to see everyone there!
