Last night, I had the great opportunity to be a featured artist in the Corry Area Arts Council Auxiliary Concert and Art Show held at the First Presbyterian Church in Corry, Pennsylvania. The evening began with a concert starring the womens' singing group, Ladies Choice. They sang songs of faith and also a few Irish Airs. (And you know how I love my Irish music!)
Afterwards, the doors were opened to the art show. I had set up the panels we use at the Artists' Guild and showed a mix of my older and newer work. One painting was even finished the day before! "Bright My Eyes Are" took about three months of hard work, but I wanted to pair it with a new painting I was working on so I painted my butt off for a month and was able to get "Lorcan" ready in time. There were also some of my black and white photos, a newly framed series of flowers, some portrait paintings including two that hadn't been shown yet, a couple from my Celtic Inspired series, and a small collection of "Birds."
It was a lovely evening and I'm grateful for the opportunity to show my work, all the nice people I got to talk to, and all the wonderful compliments. Thank you to everyone who came out and to the Corry Arts Council Auxiliary for supporting local artists!
