Today is art delivery and art pick-up day. I am heading first to Gloucester to pick up my painting Channel Marker to my Heart that was in the new members’ exhibit for the Rocky Neck Gallery. From there I am driving to Essex to deliver new work for Art in the Barn.

Art in the Barn is a one weekend art exhibit and fund raiser. It takes place at the Cox Reservation and on display is a bounty of art from paintings & prints to sculptures, ceramics, and jewelry. Over 150 artists are juried in and the show attracts over 3500 art lovers. Due to the limited time (June 11 -13th) the works are on display the public is in a buying mood. Plus the added benefit is supporting the organization that sponsors the show: Essex County Greenbelt Association.

From their website here is the description of the organization’s mission:

The Essex County Greenbelt Association is a member supported nonprofit land trust that has conserved nearly 13,000 acres of land in Essex County. Greenbelt works with local communities and landowners to acquire and protect ecological areas, farmland and scenic vistas. One of our major goals is the creation of "greenbelts" consisting of river, trail, and other natural corridors, coastal systems and visually intact landscapes.”

So I am delivering 2 new oil on canvas paintings: framed, signed, photographed and labeled, and 10 new (7” x 10”) oil on gessoed paper paintings: matted in 11 x 14, 6 ply archival matboard, and signed, photographed, labeled and shrink-wrapped.

The show runs:
Friday, June 11 from 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Saturday, June 12 from 9:30 AM - 6:00 PM
Sunday June 13 from 10:00 - 4:00 PM

I will be there Friday from 1 -4 PM  stop by and say hello.
