Joyful Happenings

Hi everyone! Just a couple of announcements for our Museworthy community. Spring will be arriving in a few weeks – YAY!! – and it’s the time of year that reinvigorates us, lifts us up and out and about, gifts us with buoyant spirits and pours a feeling of expansiveness into our souls. So first, I’ve finally set a date for the Museworthy “Portraits and Pets” art show. Because I’ll be quite busy with a full art modeling schedule in March, the show will go up on the blog on Tuesday, April 4th. For those of you who still plan to submit something, if you could get it to me by March 26th at the latest that would be great.

The artwork of longtime Museworthy reader and friend to this blog Todd Fife will be on exhibit at the Tim Faulkner Gallery in Louisville, Kentucky. His “Oculi” series of bold, compelling portrait pieces created with graphite, watercolor, acrylic, ink, pencil, and gold and silver leaf, presents to the viewers a collection of expressive gazes in the eyes of various models. I am honored to be one of those models 🙂 The opening reception is on Friday, March 3rd at 6 PM and the exhibit will remain on view through March 30. You can read the press release for Todd’s show at this link. Congratulations Todd!

Lastly, the 2017 Whitney Biennial will open on March 17. New Yorkers and tourists who may be visiting our fair city this spring might want to check it out. Notably, it will be the first Biennial to be held at the Whitney’s new home in lower Manhattan. I wrote two blog posts about the new Whitney that readers can revisit if they’re interested; “Glass, Granite, and Urban Awakenings” and “Resurrection at the Whitney”.

Thanks for reading and I’ll see you all soon, friends!

  2. Claudia, Thank you so much for collaborating with me for this series. It is so wonderful, and it kinda amazes me, that one can actually form meaningful relationships over the interwebs. I am coming back to art after a period of over twenty-five years and I want all of your readers to know that YOU were one of the main instigators that kick-started my A$$ into creating art again! Museworthy is truly a deserving descriptor!

      Todd,

      “one can actually form meaningful relationships over the interwebs” <–
      So absolutely true. Writing this blog for all these years has proven it to me. It's a pretty cool thing!
      You are so generous giving Museworthy credit for kickstarting you back into your art. But I would say that the impulse to return to it was always inside you. If it took a "nudge" to push it back into action, then I'm honored to have done it. Mainly, I'm very, very happy for your enthusiasm and your success, and I wish you all the best!

    Ah, yes — here is a video from a typical early Spring day in New England: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2ZtiKYX6jM

      LOL!
      Bill, let’s hope we’re done with all that until next winter. But you should still be riding high from the Patriots Super Bowl win – a good winter event for you to relish until the lilacs start blooming 🙂
