For the foreseeable future, all my galleries are closed, all my shows have been postponed, and in-person visits are probably best delayed. I am (trying to) continue to paint in my new studio in Francestown and to stay positive.
I hope you are staying well too and that we can reconnect in person on the other side of this pandemic.
(So FYI, I am trying to post on social media, but to be honest, my mental health is so much better when I am not on it very often.)
But I'd still love to hear from you!
Please email me at email@example.com or call or text me at 603-315-9060.
Just say hi and let me know how you are and what you are doing to stay grounded.
(And of course if you wanted to buy some art or commission me to make you a one-of-a-kind painting, I'd love to hear about that too! : >)
It's all setup and I am so eager to show my cute new studio space off!
But good things come to those who wait — or so my mother always used to tell me. So I am envisioning a really fun grand opening party, on a beautiful spring day, with my front barn doors thrown wide-open! And with lots of happy, healthy, friends and supporters. I will be on cloud nine!
I also hope to be part of Francestown's Labor Day Arts & Crafts Festival, host my open studio here in October, and do other pop-up shows and events — among other things. Part of the reason I moved here was to be part of a community and make it easier for people to find me. (Somewhat ironic, no??)
Studio B, as I am calling it, is two floors — the downstairs can host gatherings and the upstairs is my work space. The building, I believe, was once the original fire station for the picturesque town of Francestown, which is located on the north-eastern edge of the Monadnock area (and just six miles from my house!)
The fire station is attached to the Francestown Village Store, which everyone is hoping will re-open this spring or summer. With a cafe!
Please sign up for mailing list so I can let you know when all these events are happening.
Thanks so much, as always for your interest and support!
(After a brief hiatus, the Wren store and gallery has re-opened (but now closed until the end of May) and I have/had been showing my work there again.)
AND I have a solo show planned for July 2020 with the opening reception scheduled for Friday, July 3 from 5 to 7 pm. Trying to visualize my artwork filling up the entire gallery, plus lots of friendly faces, and of course, a beautiful summer evening where we all go out for a beer at the local pub and toast our good health and good fortune afterwards!
My May solo show has been postponed until August, with a tentative opening planned for Friday August 7th from 5 to 7 pm.
This show is part of the Harris Center's 50th Anniversary celebration year and I am so honored to have been asked. The Harris Center has been part of my life since I moved to New Hampshire in 1990. Over the years, I have been a field student, a camp counselor, a colleague, and a board member of this wonderful land trust and environmental education organization.
I am dedicating my exhibit to Meade Cadot who has been a teacher, mentor and friend of mine for 30 years.
My plan to is to paint 8 of Meade's favorite birds for this exhibit — so stay tuned.
Seasonal: Christof's International Fine Jewelry & Art, Provincetown, MA
I tried showing my artwork here last year and it went to well, I am going to do it again!
Barbara, the owner, is just so wonderful, engaging, and enthusiastic, I am excited to see what Summer 2020 brings. (Aren't we all!?)
Christof's is located at 241 Commerical Street, right next to the movie theater. It's actually in the same building as the theater/mall complex (aka Whaler's Wharf) on the left when facing the main entrance.

Ongoing: Valerie's Gallery
A very charming gallery and high-end gift shop located in the heart of downtown Portsmouth, NH. Valerie also has a shop on the main drag in Newburyport, MA. Both are worth checking out!
A lovely space with some very talented local artists. Amy Sullivan, who owns the business, is also curating shows at LabBelle Winery in Amherst and Portsmouth. I am scheduled to have a solo show at the beautiful Amherst location from late October 2020 until January 2021. Stay tuned for further details as they become available.
This cute little shop is also a woman-run business located in the heart of New London, just across from Tucker's Restaurant. The owner is named Kim, and you will recognize her by the big smile that always seems to be on her face. Tell her I said, hi!
