My friend Adriana is a wonderful pastel artist and invited me to the show. The CNY Art Guild has their meetings on Thursdays so I am not a member. The show was nice, not spectacular. I am so much more of the avant garde art style. I get bored with endless paintings of monarch butterflies, chicadees and cardinals. There were however several pieces there that piqued my interest, one was of called hot and cold I think and it was an assemblage piece made of valves and temperature gauges. (Can you say STEAMPUNK?) another was a piece that I called best in show an assemblage called Dragon Fly over. There was lots of nature photography that made me realize I need to get my butt in gear and print out some of my stuff because I know it is on the same level as some I saw there, and perhaps more marketable. My friend Adriana does gloriously photographic pastel work, though and often of woodland scenes which is of course as I have said a thousand times or more where I am most at home. While I was there a woman stopped me and told me about another art guild that is on Tuesdays. Yay. And gave me her post card, her name is Maria Janina Rizzo, as I was leaving my friend told me that this artist is having a show next week, so we are planning to attend.
