SHOW NEWS

Holiday show in Connecticut

Lots of my paintings in the Mark Twain Library benefit show in Redding, Conn.! I submitted two framed works, "Light Fall" (see below) and "Through the Grass" (at right). Both were accepted. The great thing about this show is that artists can bring their own "portfolio," or bin, of unframed works. Mine is packed full this year, with lots of new works. You can see some below.

The show is short: from Friday, Dec. 1, to Sunday, Dec. 10. It's always a very high-level show, show work by lots of excellent painters, so if you're in the area, it's worth a visit.

"Cerulean Days" features 12 new paintings. The cover image is the May painting, of Arroyo Burro Beach in Santa Barbara.

Here are a few of the new matted paintings. Clockwise from top left: "The Light at the End of the Woods," "The Road Past the Beech Forest," "The Promise of Happiness," and "The Quiet Stream." These are all small paintings—4 x 6 or 5 x 5—and matted to 10 x 14 for easy framing.

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."

Here's a video of the award presentation:

BEST IN SHOW! "Two Fields" is only 8½ x 5 inches. I painted it last fall while doing a demonstration of painting on Yupo, the synthetic paper I've been using for a while now.

Also in the art league show in August: "California Oaks," above, shows the very tall grass that grew in Santa Barbara this spring, after all the winter rain. "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).
