Carol L. Douglas Studio Annual Student Show
The VB Brewery, 6606 New York 96, Victor, NY 14564
Opening reception, Sunday June 8, from 1-4 PM
|Kitty's Dog, Moke, by Christine Long|
I have an elderly Jack Russell terrier with whom I have a love-hate relationship. Yes, he is pea-brained, attacks small animals, and tries to bite the mail carrier, but he’s also affectionate and loyal.
Yesterday, one of my students, Christine Long, dropped off this painting for our student show. It could be my Max, with the breed’s characteristic pose and slightly worried expression. It will be in our student show in June at the VB Brewery in Victor.
|Three abstractions, by Cath Bullinger, Brad VanAuken, and Carol L. Douglas. We're auctioning these to raise money for the Open Door Mission.|
In April of last year, Cath Bullinger, Brad VanAuken and I collaborated on three abstractions. With the passage of time—and the addition of frames—I think they were quite wonderful.
Of course, they were an experiment, so when I was asked whether one of them was for sale, I was nonplussed and dropped the ball. They’ve been hanging around my studio since.
The three of us have decided to auction off the three paintings to benefit the Open Door Mission here in Rochester. They’ll be hanging in our student show. Just stop by in the month of June and pencil your name and bid in on the silent auction form. At the end of the month, the highest bid wins. And with an opening bid of $50, you have a decent shot of getting a nice painting for a great price, and the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping a great organization.
|Camden Harbor Reflections, by Pamela Casper.|
Two of my 2013 workshop students have graciously volunteered to send work for the student show. Both are working artists. Pamela Casper lives in NYC and has shown extensively in the United States and Europe. Nancy Woogen paints, teaches and exhibits in the Hudson Valley.
There are still a few openings in my 2014 workshop in Belfast, ME. Information is available here.
