summery day

It's been like summer here in Arlington. It was in the 80s yesterday, today it was up there, too. Gardens are bursting!

On the art front, I am getting ready to submit a piece to the Danforth Museum of Art members' exhibit. Last year, two of my Orbs pieces were accepted. I will be submitting a grouping of the Glyphs pieces.

I now have 4 pieces at a new gallery in Arlington, 13 Forest Gallery.

At the Arlington Center for the Arts, we have just about completed our April Vacation Arts Program - our theme is Tibet - Roof of the World. How did I know 9 months ago when I planned the theme that the topic would be so hot? We had a wonderful Tibetan musician play his instruments for our 70+ campers. I am so proud of this program! We are truly transforming lives through the arts!

As I work for Golden Paints, much of my teaching revolves around helping students understand the versatility of the medium and what all those different products actually can do for them.

Appetite  - four day exhibition in Melrose, MA featuring my work and my friends Patti Brady and Catherine Bertulli.

Lisa Crossman, Ph.D., Curator - Fitchburg Art Museum, had this to say about Appetite  
Appetite begins with instinct and results in vibrant, playful excess. Catherine Bertulli hosts the artist-organized pop-up exhibit in her large studio in Melrose, MA. Each artist toys with the seduction of the surface such as the draw of bright colors. Bertulli’s monumental towers are impressive illusions, shimmering columns of gold, turquoise and other brilliant tints. They are eye-catching objects. Yet the aniline dyes are fugitive­­–presenting only impermanent effects–and they are hollow, only a shell of architecture. Adria Arch’s palette too confesses her interest in forcing the unexpected through experimentation–freezing a mark in time and then responding to it, and intuitively combining fields of color with shapes and patterns. Her paintings are pleasurable in their leg…
