Fish and Fowl Show

Fish and Fowl Show

I managed to get my prints for the show framed and ready. Jane Morais installs the show Tuesday, September 30 in Berkeley Springs, West VA, Ice House Special Exhibit Gallery. Of the exhibitors, Olin Yoder and Jane have been my colleagues at CCBC, both now retired; Harvey Kirstel was in the Art Department at UMBC for years, now retired and Mark Adams I met many years ago when he was painting mostly nudes. He is now participating in a painting a day project on the web, which means his work is accessible to many more viewers and buyers. Below is an oyster picture in the Dutch tradition I nabbed from his site.

Dana and I plan to go to the opening in Berkeley Springs and stay over a night, as the reports are that it is a one of the”Top 100 U.S. Art Towns”. Years ago when we were planning our Interdisciplinary Humanities Courses at CCC, my colleagues and I stayed at a B&B there and the Art Department and later the Computer Graphics Department did two day curriculum revision retreats at Coolfont. Student Government used to go to Coolfont regularly with the student club leaders for Leadership Training. I am not sure that still happens. Times change and the money gets spent by different priorities.

At the top is the show announcement card and below the new pieces I made for the show. These in this blog entry are all digital. I had made real watercolor and marbling fish items earlier in the summer. The digital prints have some of my scanned marbled papers as source files. Some include the blend/extrusion forms I have been working on in Adobe Illustrator and I hope will show up in the next Illustrator Wow! Book by Sharon Steuer. They have been worked on both in Illustrator and Photoshop.
