Reception for Marblehead Arts Association Exhibit

Dear friends,

I wanted to invite you to the Artist Opening Reception for my watercolor exhibit at the Marblehead Arts Association. I have 6 original watercolors on the Meet The Artist Wall.  The Reception is at The Marblehead Arts Association, 8 Hooper Street,  Marblehead (Tel: (781) 631 2608) on Sunday September 8 from 2-4 PM. Google the directions which are easy - the trip is essentially driving up 1A N.

I used beautiful handmade paper, a white mat and cherry frame for Orchid Sculpture, below. This orchid 'called' me to paint it because the leaves are so sculptural.

There are 4 other artists showing their work as well. There will be refreshments served.

Hope to see you on the 8th.

Best, Anita

New Exhibitions!

Hi - Hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful summer August weather. If you're a winter lover and hate the heat, you're in trouble. I, however, am a summer person and I say "BRING IT ON!" More sum, warmth and flowers!!!

Here are my exhibitions: Solo show at Marblehead arts Association at "Meet The Artist Wall". You see it as soon as you walk through the door of the association - 8 Hooper Street, Marblehead. Dates: August 29-October 6.

I'm also having an exhibition of my watercolor and pastel archival prints at a restaurant called Putterham Grille, 1210 West Roxbury Parkway, Chestnut Hill. They are all for sale and the restaurant is neat. Very supportive of artists and always has art on the walls. Dates: September 12-October 30. The Reception is September 19 at 6:30. Come for hors d'oeuvres and wine. And say hi! I'll be there.

Notice, my newest pastel is available as a print. It's gorgeous as a print.

Come see it. Bye for now. Anita

My New Pastel "Remembrance"


I'm so proud of this pastel painting, I wanted to share!! It's hanging in my home in Newton, MA - it's available as a giclee print only because I want to keep the original. But the giclee is printed beautifully. It looks like velvet!

I was going to submit it to the next Concord Art Association's juried show, but will have to choose another watercolor or pastel!

Hope you like it! 

Newton MA Mayor's Exhibition

I wanted to let everyone know there's a wonderful exhibition through Newton Open Studios currently on exhibition.

There are many interesting works by several artists.

Go to 1000 Commonwealth Avenue, 2nd floor. The show will be up through August.

And enjoy!!

"Liquid Scapes" Show

Hello Everyone,

The next exhibit at Arts League of Lowell is "Liquid Scapes" and will start on August 30 and go till September 29. The address is 307 Market Street, Lowell. The show promises to be an interesting one, with many interpretations of water.

My two paintings in the show are very different from each other. One is a very 'dreamy' painting called Fog:

And the other is a dramatic painting of the moon with Venus over the ocean:

I painted both while looking at the water at very different times and places. Fog was painted in New England and Moon with Venus (and it IS the moon with Venus) was painted during the night while I was vacationing in Captiva, Florida. Both from very real life!!

If there's a reception for this show, I will let you know.

Meanwhile, take advantage of the many "water sources" or beaches we have around the Boston New England area while summer lasts!

My New Paintings and "Fabrication of Imagination"

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to bring you up you up to date about my paintings. Magnolia is a new watercolor painted on handmade paper. It's currently exhibited with Vintage Tea   (pastel) in the Arts League of Lowell,
307 Market Street, Lowell MA. I have several paintings, giclee prints and cards in this art coop.

The building, which houses this gallery/coop, is one of many interesting old beautiful brick mill buildings in Lowell.
In the 1800's Lowell MA was a center for the textile industry, and now many art galleries and studios are in residence in these interesting, large windowed, light buildings.

 The exhibit there now is a fabulous juried show called "The Fabrication of Imagination" and is a must see! The Reception is Friday, August 9, from 4-6. Here is one piece among many diverse works designed with fabric. You won't be disappointed going to the gallery!

So go on Friday if you can - or any other day: Wed.-Sat. 12-6, Sun 12-4. You'll see my work  and the new show. Happy viewing!
