That’s a Wrap!: Events to End the Year

It’s been a busy past month and I haven’t gotten the chance to write to you all during this time.  I’ve finally wrapped up (figuratively AND literally) the last few projects before Christmas.  One of the toughest parts about being an artist around the holidays is that I can’t reveal projects in real time because it would possibly ruin the surprise.   So stay tuned for some glimpses in the coming week or so of what I’ve been up to.  

​​One of the extra bonuses of the holidays is that you may get a little extra time off to do things with the family (or away from the family also).  If you’re looking to get out of the house to look at some art, these are the current places where I have work:

Arnot Art Museum

I was very honored to be invited to participate in the Holiday Art Market at the Arnot Art Museum in Elmira, NY.   The collection features artists from the local area.

For this show I submitted 10 paintings of different scenes from around the region.  There is a range of works that depicts local landmarks within the city (such as the Arnot Art Museum shown on the left) as well as the beauty of rural places found just minutes away. 
This collection will only be available for viewing and purchase until January 3rd, so be sure to stop by soon to see (or even adopt) your favorites.  The unique part of this show is that if you purchase a piece you are able to take it with you – which also means that if you want to see all the works you will need to make sure you stop by soon!  (Be sure to check their website for details on hours).

The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes

The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes is hosting their annual Holiday Member Show through January 5th in Corning, NY. 

For this show I am exhibiting one of my favorite paintings from this year depicting the Erie Street Bridge in Elmira, NY.  One of my favorite parts of painting this piece was contrasting the cool colors of the shadowed areas with the warmth of the sunlight peeking through in small spots.  It definitely is one that is best viewed in person. 

The official opening reception for this show is  December 29th 5pm-8pm during Corning’s monthly Urban Art Crawl, however the show is up and able to be viewed any time prior during office hours (see the ARTS Council’s website for more information on hours). 

Gallery 120 

I have one large pastel drawing currently at Gallery 120 in downtown Elmira.  If you’ve been following the shows that I’ve exhibited in the past (or currently), you know that I typically show my smaller acrylic paintings of local scenes.  This change of pace will be a rare treat for anyone who wants to take a look at an example of my portraiture work in person.

The show can be viewed until March 2nd, Monday through Friday 11am to 1pm at Gallery 120.  This gallery is a pop-up by Community Arts of Elmira located at 120 North Main Street in downtown Elmira.  The entrance can be found by walking through the gateway towards Clemens Square.  (The gallery will be closed Christmas day; check their website for further information regarding changes in hours).
If you’re wanting to stay cozy inside your house, I have you covered with that also!  Here is where to find me online to browse or buy:
