I am SO looking forward to this weekend! My small town in North Carolina is having not one, but TWO art shows on Saturday which make for a fantastic afternoon/evening out!
First up is my good friend Margaret Harrison‘s solo show at Southwinds Gallery! You will not want to miss seeing her beautiful watercolors in person!! A multi-talented artist, she will also have her recently published book, Howtogetbetternow, available for purchase and to be signed. Small pastel paintings, cards, and many other delightful creations await you at her show from 4-7 pm.
From 6-8 pm, Debbie Schiappa, Florbela Nienaber, and myself are in a 3 Woman Show together, just around the corner at Eclection. This is where we have been drawing for several years in the cold months of the year when we are unable to be out and about drawing downtown. Eclection is the perfect place for artists to draw and paint due to the revolving menagerie of amazing hand works by area artisans. Chris and Amanda, owner and manager of the shop, do an incredible job showcasing the work of these artists and the three of us are tickled to be invited to show some of our drawings from this magical place. We will have originals, prints, and cards for you to view and purchase if you like.
If I could be so bold as to suggest that you clear your calendar on Saturday so that you can attend these events, I know you will not be disappointed. Better still would be to attend Margaret’s show at 4. Eat an early dinner at Giada’s at 5. Come to our show at 6 and stay at Eclection for the evening festivities of music in the Breathe Lounge there.
What a day it will be!!!
