It's been a long slow start-up to Spring, but here we are: Memorial Day is right around the corner.
That means it's time for an Open Studio tour!
Our Jericho-Underhill group once again has its hub at the Emile Gruppe Gallery in Jericho Center. This is a good spot to pick up your maps (both the local and the state-wide) and to view samples of work by our group as you plan your tour. Also on display at the gallery are photography by Bruce Gilbert-Smith, and watercolors by Kathleen Bergeron. The yellow maps for our local group are very handy, if you need good driving directions.
In previous years, I exhibited my "studio" off-site. This time, I invite you to visit the studio itself.
Come and see what I keep on hand to inspire me, what materials I use, and more. Try your hand drawing with walnut ink, or charcoal, or who knows...
Here's a typical painting day for me: everything at hand! Everything!!!!
The last few months have been an interesting "germination" period. Most recently, the week I spent at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson yielded new work: more "Monster Fashion" drawings (bigger and bigger!) and a self-portrait diptych that is in the very early stages. These are just two of the many things I've started recently, but yes, there are a few finished pieces as well. I am looking forward to sharing them with you.
To get you started, here's the map for the local tour!
