Art After Hours

I did it! My first Guest Artist show at a local gallery, The Storyteller's Bookstore here in downtown Wake Forest. The opening reception for my month-long pastel exhibit, which will run through August 7, was Friday evening at After After Hours, and I was absolutely thrilled to see so many of my dear friends and fellow artists stop by.

It was such a joy to see so many friends and make some new ones, and I so very much enjoyed the opportunities to chat with people about my artwork and painting process. To top things off, a few pieces sold almost immediately and I trust they will bring as much joy to their new families as they brought me painting them. I was delighted to discover also that some of the local media even mentioned me and my show, including the Wake Weekly and Wake Forest Today - click on the newspaper titles to go to their respective articles. The exhibit will run through August 7, so if you're in the area, please do come by Storyteller's for a visit!

I'm so appreciative of all the wonderful people in my life, and the supportive and encouraging art community we have here in Wake Forest. Looking forward to the Next Big Thing - the Wake Forest Tour of Artists coming up September 6-7. I will be a participating artist, exhibiting several works as well as demonstrating my soft pastel techniques at Sunflower Studio & Gallery, and hope to see you all there!
