Late September Shows

 What a great weekend! SPARKcon was a fun and creative festival in downtown Raleigh and I was part of the creative energy at bazaarSPARK. As circus acts, chalk artists, acting, singing, dancing, drumming and Zumba took place, 50 artists were manning their booths and showing off their creative wares.  I was prepared with new designs in my watercolor pendants and also some of my favorite smaller oil paintings.

The weather on Saturday was gorgeous, sunny and cool which encouraged art lovers to make their way through the streets of Raleigh. Sunday brought nastier weather, but the artists that stayed had a fabulous time keeping warm with hot cocoa and coffee from Starbucks. All in all, it was a great time and I would participate again!

These crazy clowns were part of the fun. They marched slowly down the street to Safety Dance .
My work is currently hanging in several other locations right now too. Two of my paintings, Origami Peace Dove and Ascension are both at the VAE gallery in Raleigh as part of the gallerySPARK section of SPARKcon. My Chickens are hanging at the Walter Greer Gallery in Hilton Head with the Art League of Hilton Head. Origami Boat is hanging at Indigo Pines in Hilton Head and this piece, The Girl in the Cloche Hat, is part of the All That Jazz show at the Halle Cultural Arts Center. All pieces will be hanging for the rest of the month. I will be creating a monthly newsletter to update fans of my art on new work and shows in which my work will be included. The fall and winter is already shaping up to be a busy time, and I would love for you to be included in the excitement. If you are interested, please email me here with "newsletter" in the title and I will include your email on my newsletter list. If at any time you would like to be removed, just let me know and I will take you off the list.

 My wonderful and talented husband, McGeath Freeman, is also an artist featured at the All That Jazz show at the Halle. His painting, Una Mas is shown here:
