What's New? Locally Sourced... Art!

It's been a busy summer with lots of painting work squeezed in between family travel and I enjoyed every minute!

The fruits (and veggies and flowers) of that labor will be on exhibit at a semi-solo / two-person show in Muscoot Farm's Main House Gallery during the month of September:
Farm to Table - landscape, still life and intimate interiors

Right now, most are in the staging area, aka kitchen!

I'm so pleased that Leslie Carone is joining me for this exhibit. Leslie's serene oil and pastel landscapes of local farms, gardens and rural scenes are a perfect Muscoot theme. Come see, and you can take a bit of farm country home with you!

My own locally sourced art work features fruit from Stuart's Farm as well as flowers and cheese from the Pleasantville Farmer's Market. And feathers from my backyard! Very exotic.

 Muscoot Farm is on route 100 in Katonah, just south of route 35. It's a historic farm, complete with chickens, goats and pigs! And on Sunday there is a farmers market with locally sourced goodies (see the theme here?!) 
 Please join us any Saturday or Sunday during September, but for the most fun, stop by at our reception
Sunday, September 11th from 1-3pm

Leslie and I are also pleased to participate in an art exhibit in the magnificent barn at Stone House Farm which will benefit the Somers Land Trust's mission to preserve open spaces. Reservations are required for this event which includes informal tours of Stone House Farm which is on the National Register of Historic Homes.
Picture these walls - covered with art!

Please share this post with all your art-loving, country-craving friends! See you  in September!
