The Smithy Gallery

I'm pleased to announce that I've been invited to participate in the group show "Earthly Possessions" at the Smithy Gallery in Cooperstown, NY this summer. Among the paintings of mine selected was The Things We Carry.
The Things We Carry, an oil painting montage of 8 women's purses surrounding an image of symbolic purse contents, was inspired by the book “The Things They Carried” by Tim O'Brien. In the book Mr. O'Brien writes about the Vietnam War, it's aftermath, and what the soldiers actually carried in their backpacks and the emotions they carried both during and after the war. After reading the book, I was intrigued by what women carry in their pocketbooks, both actual and emotional.
Other spring and summer venues I'll be participating in so far are:
2nd Annual Lion's Park Art Festival
May 26th
Stockade Villager's Outdoor Art Show
September 8th
