Andalusian me.


I thought it would be fun to have a venue for the work of my students and friends who are artists, with a little of mine thrown in on the side.

Today one of my students, Tina Eibl, came to class with this pastel drawing from one of the photographs in the latest challenge.  It was done on sandpaper!


Look at what I got in my email...a beautiful watercolor of our windmill.  It was sent by my friend Brenda Cretney.  A few years ago she was in my class and has since moved she is a member of the Rochester Art Club and as you can see, is very accomplished.  This is a strong example of good composition and technique.  That's what happens when you are willing to paint everyday.   Thanks Brenda!

It takes a lot of time and money to start a new gallery.

But that didn't hold back Kathy Weston and her husband Stewart.  She is an artist and he is a professor in the Biology Department at the college.

There are three parts to A Different Path.  They started off with a shop...most of the inventory gathered from local artists.

Unique and the kind of items I would have in our house.
This night light for has to be my first purchase.

There are also some socks that I need to buy...those mismatched hand knit kind.

The  second part is the gallery itself.  It made it's debut with work from the Arena Group.

This was one of the artists.  And she was wearing a pair of those socks I want!

Even to they were still working on the facade of the building, the show went on as planned.

The majority of the work is now complete (and done with great integrity I might add) and they are ready to go out to phase three.  Preparing studio space on the second floor.

We are fortunate to have a gallery of this quality in our little village.
