Trummer's On Main

Next week, Northern Virginia Artists League (NOVAL) hangs at Trummer's on Main, an elegant restaurant in picturesque Clifton, VA. Executive Chef Clayton Miller of Trummer's On Main has been named one of Food & Wine magazine's Best New Chefs of 2010. If you're a Top Chef connisseur like I am, you might be in awe, too.

I will have three pieces in the show, which will last into November, and the Opening will be August 25 from 7-9pm.


Less than two weeks remain!

If you're in Central Michigan or you just want to see a great exhibit, visit the Great Lakes Pastel Society's National Show (and my Barrett House Meadow) before August 1. It's not too late...yet.

PS - Happy Birthday, Ma, my favorite Michigander!


Designer's Choice

The quiet time had come for me at the Workhouse. My Featured Artist show was over and I was looking to gear up for what the Fall brings. But I have good news in between!

This month I was chosen at the Designer's Choice among the Workhouse Associates "for a piece or body of work." I'm not sure which criterion I met, but the large, pretty gold star is attached to Skyline Stands, so I'll assume that's my lucky ticket.This show will be on display through August 1.

The Designer's Choice is an award presented by professional designers of Association of Interior Design Professionals (AIDP), who work closely with the Workhouse fulfilling the desires of their clients as they tour with them through the galleries and studios, perhaps taking pieces to the clients' home for viewing in situ. Participating artists all over the campus sign up for the MAD Artist! program to allow their paintings to receive some extra mileage.

Many thanks to AIDP and the Workhouse for making this possible.


Potomac River Regional Art Show

This year, I decided to participate in the Annual Potomac River Regional Art Show, an exhibit hosted by the Colonial Beach Artists' Guild. Two of my pieces from Cape May are hanging there. I'd not been to Colonial Beach before, so it was a treat to drive down.

Colonial Beach's Second Friday Art Walk on July 9 runs from 6 to 9pm and it will include the Opening Reception at the Town Center located at the corner of Washington Ave and Hawthorne St. In another gathering, awards will be presented at the end of the exhibit on Sunday August 8 at 3pm.
