December 2002 ~ At Maureen's
Announcement: I will be showing off my Venice Windows (including some funky shapes) and Marian will be showing her paintings. It is a "His 'n Hers" right-side-of-the-brain group show. And you are invited, bring your right-side. Especially Friday evening if you can make it, as we'll be there then. Palette supplied, but bring your palate for the munchies.
Location: Maureen McManus' house, (617) 484-2620, 42 Barnard Rd, Belmont, MA (Mapquest for directions)
Time: Friday December 6, 6~9:30 pm (also open Sat and Sun 1~6 pm)
Hope to see you, JB & Marian
can appear daunting and cold; snooty openings and
outrageous, inflated prices can inhibit people from enjoying the experience
of looking at and owning original art.
Luxuriating on a honeymoon in Venice for a whole month, John turned to the
right side of his brain and wandered aimlessly. His camera discovered the
fantastic combination of decay and beauty of the windows and doors of
Venice, Italy Alexandra Sheldon
Her paintings are inspired by walks at the Fresh Pond Reservoir in
Cambridge, MA Virginia Peck
A recurring theme that emerges in her work is the incredible diversity in
the human face and its ever-changing emotional landscape. Another area of
interest for her has been land and waterscape painting. Mindful of how
little of nature is still unspoiled, she hopes these paintings will inspire
all of us to treasure and protect the land that is left
Marian Dioguardi She is
a purist using only paint, panel and pallet knife. She is challenged by
color and contrast, form and shape and the way in which everyday objects
occupy space. She tries to capture moments and objects inspired by simple
beauty Jill Pottle
Taking abandoned furniture from decades ago, Jill breathes new life
into it through the application of paint, beads and found objects
Emily Malin A physically
challenged artist living in the Boston area, Emily works at home with the
assistance of her art teacher. Despite neurological impairments due to a
childhood illness, she is able, with limited movement in her left arm and
hand, to create her vivid watercolors
I'm glad that I did come
that night. Your windows of Venice came out more vivid on print than on
screen, it seems. I never got to talk to Maureen but wanted to thank her
for hosting this event. Very cool and fun.
Oh I really did enjoy it. Such talent all in one room. I
especially also enjoyed meeting Maureen --how great that she opens up her
home for such an auspicious occasion and chatting with Jill Pottle.
Thanks so much for telling us about the show.
Congratulations! Both of you produce beautiful stuff! I've still got lemons
in my head from one of M's paintings. Now I'm off to visit the dog-site.
Happiness + sales = celebration — whoopee!
