Wonderful opening reception at our new gallery, Five Points Gallery, in town last night. Works by Power Boothe and Joe Fig. Good attendance and some very interesting pieces. I loved Power’s large red painting and was especially drawn to his smaller monoprints and ink sketches. Joe Fig is just beyond words. One must see his pieces to really get a feel for how much time and effort he has expended on them. They are just meticulous!

Saw lots of familiar faces and was reminded that as much as I want to leave this place, a lot of memories have been created here…lots of connections.

Hoping the people behind this new vision for Torrington are correct and that this former industrial town is poised for better things in the future. If last night’s opening is any sort of gauge of that, then we are headed in the right direction.

My Silly Valentine

Recent mixed media collaged assemblage for a members show at our Canton Gallery on the Green titled ‘Love & Chocolate’.

Been working on a new collage….after gluing the images down I realized that the word ‘PROTEST’ is showing through the dark area on the right hand side. Works for me! (though I shall probably have to emphasize it more)

The new show which opens this Friday, February 14th, at the Canton Gallery on the Green is titled ‘Love & Chocolate’.

I did manage to work out a collage to enter but have not really felt the creative jusices flowing for the past month or so.

It should be an interesting show though, so I would hope there are some sales at the Opening Reception this Saturday night!

Not a very clear photo…actually rather blurry. This is the grouping on my wall at the top of my stairs. It includes a piece recently purchased (just above the light switch) from my friend Scott Rolfe.
