What a great way to start the New Year--getting ready for the opening of my art show at the
Earlville Opera House
this Saturday (Jan. 8).
It has been a year-long process from submitting my work to acceptance and finally, the hardest part which was deciding on which paintings to show. I am thrilled to be able to share several of my oil landscape and seascape paintings from my
French and Italian collections
. The paintings I have chosen are some of my favorite far away places. My hope is that when viewed, the onlooker will visually step through the painting and travel along each scene living their own story as they visually walk deeper into the painting.
I am honored to be selected by the Earlville Opera House for this opportunity and it seems fitting that I am displaying my artwork here at the Earlville Opera House for I have grown up in the shadows of some of its history.
The historic Earlville Opera House is the third building to be constructed on the same site the previous two having been destroyed by fires before 1895. The current building, which was built in the late 1890s, gleams in architectural history and serves as a local community center for the arts. I grew up in Hamilton, New York, and remember several special occasions when my mother would take me to performances at the Opera House.
I look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones at the opening on Jan. 8 from noon to 3 p.m. The show will continue through Feb. 19. The winter hours are Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 3 p.m. Click
