Accepted to The Smithy Membership Gallery - Cooperstown, New York

I am excited to say, I was recently accepted to The Smithy Membership Gallery in Cooperstown, New York. This is a new venture for me as I begin to connect with the local artists' community in the Cooperstown area. My husband and I own and operate Pail Shop Vineyards two miles from Cooperstown in Fly Creek, New York. We live here in the summer and most weekends through out the year, so meeting other artists and becoming familiar with our local art scene interests me. In addition to hosting art exhibits and teaching art classes in our tasting room, we are working to develop additional ways to support the visual arts at Pail Shop Vineyards.  I believe my new membership in The Smithy will assist me in this pursuit as I come to know and work with other visual artists in the Cooperstown area.

Solo Exhibit - Cooperstown Art Association

August 26 through September 30, I have a solo exhibit of new work at the Cooperstown Art Association Gallery on Main Street in Cooperstown, New York.  The opening reception is Friday, August 26 from 5 to 7pm.
