New Opening at the Morean Arts Center

Proud to be in such good company!

I opened an exhibit of watercolors only at the Morean this past Saturday for Artwalk, along with encaustic artist Leslie Newmann and two glass artists. We were all lucky enough to open in conjunction with a very successful new exhibit that drew a record crowd of 300+ from the Tampa Bay area on Satturday night. Four of us are part of the Morean’s new program, Salon30, individual exhibits that hang for 30 dyas and are then replaced by other artists. We are all eager for this program to succeed. It means income for the Morean and exposure for artists who seldom show outside their studios due to high gallery commissions. You rent your chosen space and no commissions are taken. If I sell one painting, I’ll pay for my costs. If not, I’ve always got my private open studios at McNulty Lofts for interested visitors and collectors.
