After a long break from painting, I’ve been working, more like struggling, on 2 paintings for an April exhibit at UForge Gallery in Jamaica Plain (767 Centre Street). It’s a new gallery with an admirable mission to foster creativity and art accessibility to both artists and the community in general. The opening reception is on Saturday, April 9th from 6-8pm and I’m looking forward to seeing what Rob Festa, photographer and UForge’s co-owner has done with the space. While you're there, be sure to stop by Salmagundi, a most fabulous hat and accessories boutique right next door.
Also mark your calendars for the CRAFTOPIA in Pawtucket, Rhode Island on Sunday, April 10th from 10am to 4pm. There’s a fantastic lineup of 75 local designers and artists along with delish food and offerings from yummy area restaurants. Definitely a worthwhile trip to find something handmade and unique for yourself or a loved one!
Lastly, I leave you with some evidence from today's walk along Commonwealth Avenue that SPRING is officially upon us. yay.
