This is my second year doing the Painted Poetry exhibition. It is a unique event and has proven to be a bit of a challenge both years. It begins when the artists send in a jpg of a finished painting. The poets do the same with a poem. Then, each artist receives a poem written byt one of the poets, and each poet receives a photo of a painting originally submitted by an artist. The artists must paint a picture inspired by the poem. The poets must write a second poem, this time about the painting they received. The result is an exhibition with a pair of poems/paintings from each pair of writers/artists.
This Wednesday evening, at 6 PM, the opening reception will be held at Surf City library. The poems will be read aloud while the corresponding painting is projected behind the poet. Come on out to see this beautiful collaboration of pen and paintbrush! You won’t be sorry!
This Sunday I will be moving to the other end of the island for the Harvey Cedars Arts Festival at Sunset Park (under the water tower). Come on out and check out the many wonderful Artists there, including many folks from both Pine Shores Art Association and LBI Arts Council.
This weekend I will be at St. Francis annual Fine Arts Show & Sale at St. Francis of Assisi, in Brant Beach. It is an indoor show so no matter what the weather there will be a cool comfortable place for art buyers to come and check out the work. Opens at 9:30 each day.
It is very exciting to see my work on display at the new AtlantiCare medical campus in Manahawkin, NJ. Below are some shots from the opening reception.

Here is a photo of the attending artists at last week’s opening. There is work by 41 different artists in this new building! Really proud to have been chosen for this project and am honored to be included with wonderful fellow artists.
