Taking stock of your art supplies for the new year.

The new year is a great time for artists to take stock of what supplies are lacking and whats left.  I see a lot of clearance sales both in store and online which make it a perfect time to re-stock art supplies.   With one recent sale, I was able to purchase an entire roll of my favorite paper at half price.  I feel like I’ve been waiting all year to stock up!

For the month of January, three of my paintings (including the one posted above) are hanging with the Central New York Art Guild Show at the Baldwinsville Public Library in Baldwinsville, New York.  The link to their site:  I was thrilled they selected one of my paintings to advertise on their site.

A second show I’m in is the Associated Artists of Central New York “Outside/In” exhibition.  Karen Kozicki, a member of the Associated Artists, and a terrific photographer invited me to show as a guest.  This show opens January 10th and runs through February 28th.  The reception for this show is on January 18th from 2 – 4 p.m. at the Manlius Library where the show is hung.  That library link is:

A third show which began in November and will continue until sometime mid-February is a solo show at the Chittenengo Middle School.  This library space is not really accessible to the public (unless special arrangements are made) but is a show geared to the aspiring art students at CMS.
