"Last Light" wins a prize!

2018 SHOW NEWS

The 2018 show season is starting up. I submitted two paintings to the Greenwich Art Society's 101th Annual Exhibition. "Last Light," the January image in my 2018 calendar, was accepted—and won a prize! Exactly which prize I don't know because I couldn't get to the reception where the awards were announced. The curator for the show was Randall R. Griffey, Curator of Contemporary Art
at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.

The show is up and viewable till April 13, at the Bendheim Gallery at the Old Town Hall, 299 Greenwich Ave., in Greenwich, Conn.

I painted "Last Light" from a photo I took in the car, as we were driving north up the Taconic Parkway in New York.

Time to paint!

The show at the Mark Twain Library in Redding, Conn., in December was very lovely, lots of first-rate paintings. We went to see it during the week and thought I'd sold two unframed works. When I went to pick things up at the end of the show, it turned out I'd sold one painting, and the other, apparently, was stolen! Well, at least I sold one. And someone wanted the other (an old "found" painting, a section of a larger painting that I'd considered a failure) enough to swipe it. A kind of compliment, I guess.

No shows for the next few weeks. Time to paint!

October shows

All three paintings I submitted to the Trinity Fall Show in Lime Rock, CT, were accepted. They made appearances in other shows this summer: Light Fall, Great Falls, and Mt. Everett and the Housatonic—all shown below.

Meanwhile, Swamp in the Fall, also below, is hanging in the Greenwich Art Society student show.

Best in Show!

Here's a lesson in shows and judges: The painting that didn't get into the Greenwich Art Society's spring Bendheim show, "Two Fields," won Best in Show at the Housatonic Valley Art League Member Show, on display in August in Great Barrington (at Jennifer Commons, for those of you in the area). 

The judge for the show was Ira Barkoff, an abstract landscape painter from Washington, Conn. Take a look at one of the websites with his work, and you'll see why "Two Fields" resonated with him. Here's Artnet.

Also in the show is the Bendheim entry, "Light Falls," and a painting from this spring, "California Oaks."

"Light Fall," below, which was accepted into the spring Bendheim show, is from an indifferent photo of a creek in Alford, Mass., taken last fall.

The Sheffield show lives on...

For those who couldn't make it to my solo show at the Sheffield library last fall, my husband, Rob Jenter, made this video, which includes a tour of the show and a stop-action view of the party. Take a look! It's 2½ minutes.

The music is "Come Rain or Come Shine," arranged and sung by Rob (more of his music can be found at his website).
