It is with great excitement that I announce I have been accepted into another juried show, the Mixmaster @ the Matt Juried Members Exhibition at the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury CT. The show opens Sunday, February 11, 2018 and work will be up until March 13, 2018. The work that will be on display is my painting Attack of the Cupcake Virus, 2016.
If anyone is in the area I hope to see you at the opening, February 11th from 1:00 to 3:00 pm!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I wanted to give an update on how things are going in my artist practice.
I moved back to CT this past spring for a promotion at work, and a couple of my artist friends and I got an apartment together. We all continue to make work and encourage/support each other’s art. I have my own studio space where I have been continuing some work I began last fall, as well as starting some new work!
After relocating, I found out that I was accepted into an art show outside of D.C. called Wet Paint at the Workhouse Art Center in Lorton, VA. The show opened June 10th and ended August 5th. (See show photos below!)
I have been applying to more shows, and am getting ready to apply to graduate schools for their MFA programs, as well as any other opportunity that crosses my path.
Just a small update, if I get into any more shows I will post about them much sooner! Thanks for reading.
I found out in December that I was accepted into the New Waves show for emerging artists held by the Virginia MOCA. I was one of 27 artists accepted out of 282 applicants for the show. I am very excited for the show to open. If you’d like more info about the show, please visit:
I’m very excited to announce that I will be doing some traveling this fall! From October 4th until December 6th I will be backpacking through France and Italy, seeing as much art as possible and experiencing the cultures.
During that time, please visit my facebook page, instagram, or twitter to follow my progress! I will be sure to post as many photos as possible!
I participated in a group show of local artists yesterday at the Rockafeller Restaurant on the Virginia Beach oceanfront. While there wasn’t as much foot traffic as expected, I did get to meet an artist named Ed Obermeyer, who has been showing and selling his work for some time, is well traveled, and had many wonderful suggestions for where I can show my work and get it professionally framed and photographed.
One of his recommendations was that I approach the Richard Stravitz Gallery in Virginia Beach, as he has know Mr. Stravitz for a while and felt that my work is high end and would sell in his gallery. I called the gallery today and explained my referral, and now I have an appointment to show Mr. Stravitz my work! I am ecstatic, and hope that my meeting goes well tomorrow!
I am very excited to announce that I will be participating in a local art show, on Sunday July 28th, 2015, at Rockefellar’s in Virginia Beach, down by the ocean front! This is a group show and several other artists will be there. I hope to post with more info and photos as the date comes closer!
If anyone is interested in hearing more about it, please contact me.
I have been in Virginia Beach for about a week, and am trying to locate studio/storage space for all of my artwork/supplies! I am also preparing to work on my first commissioned work. There may be some delays in this process, as my mother broke her ankle this weekend and I have been helping her stay comfortable so she can get better.
Once I find a studio/storage space, I will post another update.
Yesterday was a very exciting day for my artistic career. I graduated from the Maine College of Art with my Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Painting!!! I am very excited to be embarking on my next chapter: moving to Virginia Beach and setting up my practice there.
These past four years at MECA have not only taught me the necessary skills to be a painter and artist, but also how to find my way into the art world. I know that my next endeavor will be to find a gallery or co-op in which to show my work and hopefully sell it. I will pursue grants and odd-jobs to support myself and fund my new studio practice.
Thank you to all of my supporters! Stay tuned for more news about my trip to VA and what my set-up will be once I get there!
