Follow the Artists In The book, 100 Artists of the Brandywine Valley copy

100 Artists of the Brandywine Valley Book CoverSince the publication of  100 Artists of the Brandywine Valley (Schiffer Publishing, Ltd.),  I have either promoted the activities of the artists in the book or have been part of joint book signings and art exhibits.

One on-going joint venture is my participation in the annual Chester County Studio Tour.  http://www.chestercountystudiotour.com/

 From my post from West Chester FIg magazine: It’s a “must” for anyone who enjoys seeing beautiful properties and meeting interesting people.  I’m referring to both the artists and the people you tend to meet along the way, but full disclosure:  I will be signing copies of my book, 100 Artists of the Brandywine.

 According to the organizer, Jeff Schaller (who is one of the “100” in my book),  the annual tour grew out of several years of discussions when  a group of local artists held monthly meetings at their studios to critique each other’s artwork.  

Another annual event for many of the “100” artists is the Historic Yellow Springs Art Show. 

Academy Students at Yellow Springs, encaustic on board
This painting was created using a multi-step process that included a silkscreen print made from a pen & ink drawing and securing the image to a board with encaustic paint.

Surprisingly, I was juried into the show in 2011 and have enjoyed many sales there.  Click here to view my work and that of the other exhibitors at Historic Yellow Springs.

 

I created this encaustic painting from photos I took from the Justice Center's parking garage in downtown West Chester. I several scenes taken from this spot.

 Me in Jamaica

Some of the paintings shown here were completed during one of my five art trips to Treasure Beach, Jamaica
A message from my teachers Alan and Libbie Soffer: We just can’t keep away from the balmy, musical sweetness of Jamaica. This year’s trip, February 7th to 14th, 2015 marks the 7th workshop at “Calabash House,” an all-inclusive B&B overlooking the lovely warm waters of Treasure Beach.
