Happy Fourth of July!
Wow! Is this year going fast! I hope you and your families and friends are well and beginning to venture out and reconnect with one another. The past year has been so difficult in so many ways. I enjoyed an ice cream social tonight with friends who have a good view of the Carroll Valley-Liberty Mountain Fireworks. It was a lot of fun with make your own sundaes! Yum- I’ll be back next week! Likewise, I hope you are enjoying the holiday.
I’m especially looking forward to a new exhibit that I have been invited to join at the Foundry Art Market in Chambersburg, PA. The Foundry is an artist’s cooperative with painters and print makers, but it also includes artisans creating functional works of clay, wood, fiber, and jewelry! It’s a beautiful gallery located at 100 South Main Street in the center of Chambersburg, with featured artists’ work also on display on a rotating basis at the Denim Coffee Shop at 15 North Main Street. The Foundry has a regular Spotlight exhibit that presents the art of members and/or invited guests and I’ve been invited to show eight special images- six color and two black and white from July 23- September 5. They represent a range of my work from Maine, Ireland, Scotland, and Gettysburg- two of which I have printed and framed for the first time and I think that they came out beautifully. See Afternoon Paddle from Acadia National Park above and Ladies View from Kilarney National Park, Ireland below.
Please join us if you can. Chambersburg is located in beautiful Franklin County, so enjoy a day in the countryside and a drive with family or friends. The Foundry Art Market is open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 12-4pm, and on the second Saturday it is open 10-5 (which would be August 14 for this show.). Enjoy the opportunity to see all of the members’ wonderful work and my images as part of the Spotlight Gallery starting July 23, or you can visit on line at The Foundry Art Market and on Instagram and FB at #foundryart
