The May and June Art Walks have come and gone. The crowds have been steady and the weather has cooperated most excellently. For the June Art Walk, my works were in two venues - The Points of View Gallery on Pleasant Street - "Mainly Maine" a two person show with Ed Morton - and my studio on 98 Maine Street. A big thank you to the Points of View artists for their support, help and feedback for the "Mainly Maine" show, and particularly to Ed and Betty Morton and Bonnie Dickey. The "Mainly Maine" reception during the Art Walk was quite enjoyable and the show will be up through June. My better half, Alex, handled "gallerist" duties at the studio on Maine Street during the June Art Walk. The just-finished "Bowdoin" 10 inch X 10 inch drew some attention. It was painted from a snapshot I took during the Bowdoin Common Hour - Museum Pieces in 2010. Alex also advised me that fielding comments regarding the 300 plus (1974 - 2011) "Art in America" installation / pile of magazines was a bit vexing. "Looks like a Mayan temple design." Hmmm, what to do with the "Art in America"s for the July Art Walk (if they don't sell first)?
