ArtsWorcester: Art On the Line

2013awsquare2WEB ArtsWorcester, an art association in Worcester, MA, hosts and annual event entitled "Art on the Line," which is an art sale to benefit the association. As a member, I was invited to participate by contributing four small works of art to be sold at the event. A preview of the work that I donated for ArtsWorcester: Art On the Line can be seen in the image above. They are 8"x 8" pieces, done in a mix of watercolor, pen, pencil and acrylic on paper.

The event takes place on Friday, October 4, at the Aurora Gallery in downtown Worcester. Myself, along with other local artists, photographers, and designers, have created and donated 200 8x8" works on paper specifically for this event. The squares will be suspended in ArtsWorcester’s upper gallery, and sold on the spot for $20 each. All proceeds will help keep the gallery exhibits free and open to the public.

The event begins with a preview at 6 PM for "First In Line" ticket holders. "First in Line" tickets are $35 each, and come with first choice of the artworks and a complimentary glass of wine. At 7 PM, the doors will open to the general public for a suggested donation of $5. No artwork will be sold before 6 PM, and the sale ends at 8 PM.

"ONE" - ArtsWorcester's Summer Show

Last Friday, June 7th, I attended the opening reception of ArtsWorcester's "One" show, which will be up until July 30th.  It was a wonderful evening to see fellow artists and patrons at this event. I have one painting in the show, titled "Passing." It is a framed, 9"x 12," landscape oil painting. This is one of a series of my paintings of the same size and similar content, that are influenced by Turner and Whistler, two painters whose work I admire. These paintings will be added to the website as they are completed.

2013OneAW "Passing" is located second from the left. Also, a fellow ArtsWorcester member and good friend, Cynthia Woehrle's, painting is 3rd from the left on top.

Here is a close up of "Passing." passing

If you have a chance to stop by the show I would appreciate it. ArtsWorcester is a great local organization for connecting, supporting and cultivating arts in Central Massachusetts. ArtsWorcester's Aurora Gallery, where the show is hanging, is located at:

660 Main Street Worcester, MA 01610
