New beginnings…

To me, every morning brings about a new beginning, a chance to start fresh.  Some days, I wake full of pep and vinegar, other days are lack-luster and I get little accomplished.  Oh well.

The winter’s blast of snow and chill has me wanting to find warm places to gather and I can’t think of any better places than art galleries.  They are free to enter and a place to have brief encounters with strangers where you share a common interest in art.  I don’t go merely to meet new people, but it is a pleasant side effect.

Thursday 1/6 curator Susanne Altmann’s talk starts a 5pm.    “A woman’s work is never done”  followed by the opening reception 6 – 8:30 at the A.I.R. Gallery 111 Front Street, Brooklyn.  The exhibit runs  1/5 – 1/30

Wednesday 1/12 – Juried competition deadline for “Human + Being”  is fast upon us – Center for Fine Art Photography I think I might enter a few images from my “Cambodia – Past and Present Tense” series. It’s all a crap shoot as any artist who submits images to juried exhibits can attest to, however if you are not in it, you can’t win it.  Jene Youtt has a number of his photography prints that have won awards and believe me, he is one of many creative photographers who enter.

Friday 1/14 Opening reception 7 pm  “Into the Void” exhibit at Icosahedron Gallery 606 West 26th St. NYC. Exhibit runs 1/8 – 1/29

Sunday 1/23 Opening reception 2 – 5pm “Art Collections 7” at the George Segal Gallery, Montclair University, 1 Normal Avenue, Montclair, NJ.  The exhibit runs 1/18 – 2/19. This is their annual fundraising event with over 100 artists’ works in various mediums displayed and for sale for the discerning collectors. This juried exhibit is a must see as Jene and I each have a print showing.

Take a break from the cold, meet some artists and share a glass of wine while you peruse the collections of some of the finest artists in the metro area.  A wonderful way to start the new year.

Wishing you a Happy Healthy New Year
