Group show

                       I will have one of my paintings accompanied by two short poems in
            the cancer survivors exibit at the U.R.I. gallery in downtown Providence, R.I. . This
            group showing has works by about 30 artist relating to the theme. The show runs from
            Oct. 4th through the 30th. Opening reception is on "Gallery night" Oct. 15th-- 5pm--9pm.
                       This ended up being a quik think and do challenge as I submitted work
            months ago & received a phone call last Tues. informing me of where & when to deliver
            my works. Oops somebody forgot to e-mail me! No big deal tomorrow I will drop off my
            entry and it will be in the show. I am extending an open invitation to attend, and please
            remember the October is breast cancer awareness month. Thank you.

Views up close--local art

I visited with two local artists this weekend. It's so enjoyable to see
the works up close & talk with the artists in person. I first went on
Sunday 9/13/09 to see the works of  Lydia Stein @ AS220's 94
Mathewson st. gallery in downtown Providence.  I liked the unique
style & ideas of her works. It was a very informative & enjoyable
visit for me.
I next went to view the works of Julie Beck on Monday 9/14/09,
@ Tazza, also in downtown Providence. I first started following
Julie's blog here on blogspot. I was caught by the items she painted,
as they were familiar to me from younger days. It was again a very
informative & enjoyable visit.
Thanks to both Lydia & Julie! I need to close with the fact that I am
not a critic, but a fellow artist & lover of art. With this being said, I
think one should see for themselves.
                            Take care, all,
