The Farmington Woman’s Club Craft and Pie Fair will be at Henry Wilson Memorial School, Farmington, NH on Sunday, November 19th this year. This is this their sixth year!

Approximately 50 vendors will be offering handmade products, in addition to crafts they will have a variety of homemade holiday pies for sale. They will have numerous items at their raffle table, a gift wrapping station.  Proceeds will benefit their Community Service and Scholarship Fund. The event starts at 9am, and from experience I know if you want one of the delicious pies, and believe me you do, you need to come early in the day!

I’m always impressed with their fair and how many people it brings to Farmington. I’ll have a double booth this time. I’ll be selling some of the Happiness Tree Decor items; trees, topiaries, baskets, and cornucopia for fall I’ll also have some of my holiday wreathes & swags. Most of the space will be for my paintings, collage work, monoprints, and some of my photography. Please come down that day and support local artists and craftspeople.

 

 

Go Back In Time- At The #Museum Of #Farmington #History

2014-01-26 15.08.20

This post contains the online collection and archive information for The Museum Of Farmington History.  I am the curator there as many of you know. Right now the online museum has a small representation of what we have available in the full collection, but as time goes on, many more items are being added at regular intervals. We have thousands of items to put in, so it will take quite some time. It will also take additional time to build exhibits and weave together the stories from people in town.

When I was six, NASA launched two of the most important spacecraft in their history, the Voyager probe 1 & 2. That’s a long time to be out exploring and sending back data. It’s the 40th anniversary of their launch and NASA has put out a few of promo posters. There are also two info graphics about the Voyager mission that may be of interest. Enjoy!

Mystical #Myth #Monoprint #Seahorse

I’m in place where a familiar theme begins to emerge in pieces I’m working on. It started with the seadragon monoprint and now has manifested in this acrylic monoprint of a mystical seahorse. I’m thinking of creating a unicorn, winged horse, and griffin. We’ll see where that goes; I’m having so much fun making these I can hardly wait to start the next one!

Artist Gina Adams Honors History Of Broken Promises That Preceded Standing Rock

Two Vivid #Landscape #Paintings

Leaves often remind me of glass beads. I’ve always loved the way light filters through glass. When the light is fullest I love to look up through the canopy and watch the light dance through the leaves. Those two thoughts fused to create these two landscapes. I’m going to call them Light Dance 1 & 2.

#Glass #Photography

Glass has a vibrant soul. I love looking at colored glass. I like staging, lighting, and photographing it to see what you can bring out. Light it differently or put in in a different location and it takes on other qualities that were not present in the first location. Continue reading “#Glass #Photography”
