I've got about ten pieces on view at two local venues this month, which I think is pretty cool and exciting.  Three pieces at Artspace Community Art Center in Greenfield and the balance at Sawmill River Arts Gallery in Montague.
The Artspace exhibit (Slatts & Co.) is an annual group show of figurative work by a number of local artists.  This year the curator is featuring color pencil montages by Kevin Slattery, an art maker from Northfield.  Sawmill River is exhibiting some seasonal-related work by member painters in Season of Color and is also showing paintings by members as well as some excellent craft work by members and consignors.

My work in Slatts & Co. includes a reclined figure at rest in a field of impressionistic flowers and grasses.  From my vantage point it is bold in its presentation and coloration.  I used cadmium red mixed off and on with titanium white for some screeching pinks; I occasionally blended it with other colors but didn't allow myself much time to consider it before hanging.  Anyway, it's there and maybe a bit out there as well.  Here's a tiny, tiny image....wish I had something better.

Ok, maybe I shouldn't even post the picture..........but the pink is, wow, bright enough to make out even if the image isn't!  I think I might have shocked myself!!

Screeching pink! Love it! I wish the picture was a little bigger so I could really really see it.
