Last weekend for the Abington Show & Art Ops for April

This is the last weekend for the Abington Art Center Show! My friend Elisa and her father went this week to see the show. I am so touched and humbled by the support of my friends. There is nothing quite like the feeling of being loved by friends.

Elisa had given me the Rascal - a large side of a boat some time ago. The boat was called Rascal. It was red with large yellow letters. I love the musty old wood smell of it.  Here's the link to the blog post about the boat - HERE.

Of course, Elisa is still wondering why the piece is her rascal!

Just found this link about my show - pretty cool!

The Walsh Gallery at Seton Hall University seeks submissions for “Cell Mates,” two distinct group shows that will be on view side by side in adjacent galleries.   Curators Jeanne Brasile and Lisbeth Murray will divide the 2,000 sq. ft. gallery in half, creating two separate exhibitions of artwork inspired by cellular forms.  The curators seek art that addresses a wide range of topics related to cellular forms to create a discursive exploration into microorganisms and concerns derived from their study.  Exhibition dates are June 2 through July 18, 2013. $15/5 entries.  Deadline: Wednesday May 1, 2013 (receipt date).
