Spring Planting

It seems like Spring brings the best art exhibits!  Among these shows is one that has the potential to expand the participating artists’ opportunities. Every year at this time,  Artwell Gallery in Torrington, CT holds their Show for a Show exhibition.  During the show, more than 50 major art museums and galleries from the tri-state region view the submissions and select works and artists to exhibit in their galleries.

I have decided to enter Flora, a painting I did for the Girls,Girls, Girls show at the IO gallery last spring.  She didn’t sell and has been hanging on the wall of my office, mesmerizing me with her huge eyes and mysterious beauty.  I almost don’t want to part with her, but…  she may plant some seeds of opportunity for me!


The Show for a Show exhibition runs from April 4 through May 17 with the opening reception on April 4 from 6 – 9 p.m.




Edit – 3/38/09 – I’m also submitting her for Illustration Friday‘s topic, Poise.  She does seem very poised, yes?
