The Show Scene
Greetings to All,
Since I'm managing two blogs now, some of you may get two posts by this title. This is just to point your attention to several shows you might want to catch this month, some of which will be coming down very soon.
With all the art activities that are happening, perhaps some of you did not make the opening of GAL's second member show at Scranton Library last Thursday. The Viewer's choice award went to Denise Casey for her oil painting, Azaleas. The exhibit will be in place for just about two more weeks, until June 28. If you've not yet had a chance to see it, I think you will enjoy this very contemporary exhibit of just 40 paintings, with plenty of air around each one -- quite a contrast to the recent MAS juried show.
If you have any open space in your art calendar, you might also want to catch the following offerings:
Essex Art Association Elected Artist themed exhibit Calm and Chaotic - at EAA, 10 N. Main St., Essex - Showing only two more days through June 12 - another excellent and very contemporary/abstract exhibit.
Clinton Art Gallery, Reception - this Saturday, June 13, 5-7 PM after an all-day open house serving light refreshments - 20 E. Main Street Clinton. This is a small co-op gallery that I've joined recently, showing the work of 17 artists. We're two doors up from Cindy Stevens' gallery, which opened around the same time as CAG, a little more than a year ago.
Connecticut Watercolor Society 75th Annual Exhibition at John Slade Ely House on Trumbull St., New Haven - June 13 through July 12, opening reception June 21 - 2-5 PM. This promises to be the final CWS show at the magnificent JSE House, as the building is being sold. I am told that CWS will continue to bring their biennial exhibit to New Haven in the future, using the gallery of the Creative Arts Workshop.
Lyme Art Association themed maritime exhibit American Waters - at LAA, 10 Lyme St., Old Lyme, (juried show plus exhibit by American Society of Marine Artists) - June 12 through July 31, opening reception June 19 - 6-8 PM
These are just a few shows on my personal radar this month. I'm sure you know of others.
