December Members Exhibit @ Galatea Fine art

You’re invited to the opening of the December Small Works Show at Galatea Fine Art on Friday, December 3. This member’s group show will have a wide variety of art in many media. I’ll have three oil paintings in the show, as well as a small sculpture that I made this summer. It’s part of my “beach bones” series, and reflects some on what was happening environmentally with our water last summer.
 
The show runs for the month of December, and there are a lot of great galleries in the South End with reasonably priced art showing this month.
 
l also have works in the Concord Art Association Holidays Original Exhibit, December 2 – 21. Another exhibit of small works for the holiday season.
 
My studio will be open during Fountain Street Studios Friday Stroll, Friday, December 10, 5:30-9pm.
 
Happy Holidays, and I hope you make time to see the art.
