Matted and framed and out the door

After a lovely labor day weekend with my husband and daughter, I spent the week jurying my own recent work and matting, framing and photographing three pieces to submit to local shows.

Two prints off to the Concord Art Association's Frances N. Roddy Show to be juried by Jen Mergel, Beal Family Senior Curator of Contemporary Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

One downstairs to our ArtSpace Gallery Artist's Show to entice people to come visit during Open Studios, September 29th and 30th from 12-5. I will be giving a printmaking demonstration at 2:30 each day. Please stop by to visit.

I am always impressed by the people who work in the galleries and the incredible organization and effort put in to a show. The gallery committee at ArtSpace Maynard did a great job displaying a fantastic group of diverse works. Concord Art Association was a beehive of activity with piles of submitted works to be carefully logged in and made ready for the juror to view. Kudos to all involved.

A special hello to one of the Concord Art Association volunteers for the day, Kathy Deflice Secor, a friend from my early printing days at DeCordova who is doing some wonderful artwork as well as taking time to help with the show. Check out her website
