The Berkshire Salon, Eclipse Mill Gallery

While the list is long of dreamy places to live/work as an artist, the Eclipse Mill in North Adams, Mass. has made it to the short list. Since moving there any time soon is totally out of the question, I decided to participate in their Fifth Annual Berkshire Salon. And yes, I'm exhibiting another river rock painting there. I've recently sold half of the latest River Rock Series, so I'm busy creating more for an exhibit this August. That may very well be my last river rock exhbition.

I'm craving working on a mixed media piece to break things up a bit. I love the juxtaposition of representational work side by side some very abstract pieces. It keeps me balanced in some way that I can't explain.

a wonderful evening of art

It was just one week ago today that First Fridays Artswalk in Pittsfield, Mass. had its inaugural event. After months of planning led by Leo Mazzeo and Mary McGinnis,  Friday May 4th arrived. The rain stopped, the sun came out and a beautiful evening of art, friends and life in the city unfolded. Armed with a camera, George captured many wonderful moments that evening. And this is just the first of many Artswalk evenings to come. The first Friday of each month we will hold an Artswalk in downtown Pittsfield, so if you live near by or are visiting the area, we hope you'll stop by.
