January starts with a sweet invitation! My painting above has been invited to the MJI (Members Juried I) exhibit at Concord Center for the Visual Arts (also know as Concord Art). The show opens Thursday, January 16th, with a reception happening that evening from 6-8 PM. This exhibit will run until February 9th. This show was juried by Penn Young and Emily Eveleth. (I have been a fan of her donut paintings for many years.) There is about 80 works chosen for the show and it is a honor to be among such a talented group of artists.
This painting, mixed media on 300 lb cold press paper, has India ink, crayon, graphite, mono print and acrylic. It is an abstraction that continues to evolve in my exploration of memory. Here one can see multiple layers emerging and/or obscured yet seeming in flux as memory continues to be.
I ended December with an rejection on 12/30 for a show in NYC so starting out the year with an acceptance is a small kindness in a new year.
