The Essex Art Association is currently hosting an exhibition called “Easy Street.” It features an array of artwork, ranging from lush landscapes and bustling city scenes to portraiture and still life. I attended the opening reception with my mom, who has two pieces on display in the show. They are also for sale, so definitely check them out! The gallery is open daily, from 1-5 pm, at 10 North Main Street in Essex, Connecticut. This exhibit runs until July 18th.
Art Prompt: black history month
Materials: poster board, Copic markers, Sharpie, acrylic paint
Thoughts: This was my contribution to the Black History Month bulletin board at the Women’s Center of Eastern Connecticut State University. It will be on display along with fun facts, words of wisdom from black leaders and history-makers, all February long. We might even keep it up through March, since that is Women’s History Month.
By now you’ve probably noticed I’ve fallen behind on my 365 Day Art Challenge. I think I bit off more than I could chew! Having been hired at a second job, and with the multiple snow storms, things were bound to get hectic and my time got very limited. So sadly, I’m going to have to tap the brakes on a 365 Day Art Challenge. Instead, I will finish posting some of my art from January. I want to thank you all for your support through this. I’m bummed I wasn’t able to keep up, but this has sure been a learning experience. Maybe when things calm down a bit, I can jump into the art ring again for a different week-long or month-long challenge. For now, I hope you enjoy the rest of my art doodles and sketches. Thanks!
