I spent a lot of time driving today, down to South Yarmouth and back, to deliver my painting to the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, where it will be up with the show For Pastels Only, hosted by the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod. The show runs from June 17 to July 12, with an opening reception on June 20. I'd never been to South Yarmouth before, and it was a perfect day for a visit--mid 70s, sunny and breezy. The Cultural Center is a beautiful building! I think it was a bank in a previous life, since there's a large (open) vault in the center of the back wall. And a lovely bonus was that the show that's ending this week, the work of oil painter Christopher Zheng, was still up:
Gorgeous, no? I spent some time wandering around, looking at his beautiful paintings. I also got a sneak peek at the pastels being dropped off by other artists, and I think this will be a stunning show! Everything I saw was terrific--not a dud in the lot! I'm really honored to be sharing the walls with such an accomplished group of artists. I got a surprise also--when I checked in my painting and unpacked it, I was told that it will be appearing in the show program! *Gulp!*
