This year I was invited to take part in the Main Line Art Center's Fine Art Sale and Preview Party. Five paintings are included in the show and "Irises in June" was featured on the invitation. This is a wonderful event, and I am pleased to be able to help raise money for a fabulous local resource. The Preview Party is April 15th, and the show continues through May 25th.

I am delighted to be included in "Water As the Source", a juried exhibition at The Alumni Gallery, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art. The show runs from April 29th through July 17 with an opening reception on May 6th, from 5:30 to 6:30. The painting I will be showing is "Popham Beach in Winter". Popham is a beautiful and popular beach near Bath, Maine. On the January day that I walked the beach, it was below zero degrees and very windy. The empty beach was intensely quiet except for the sound of the wind in the dried grasses on the dunes. It was incredibly beautiful.
