"Spring Has Arrived"

- Spring Has Arrived -
Acrylic on canvas - 6"x6"
I painted this small piece for the new exhibition at Rail Walk Studios & Gallery, "It's Hip to be Square." I have a total of eight pieces in ths show. All the participating artists have created works of art in a square format. I've been painting on square canvases quite a lot in the last two years. That format is very appealing to me. Not sure why; perhaps it's the pure symmetry, which is quite a contrast to my loose style.

The show opens Saturday, April 2, 2011, with a reception from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. Lots of "square" food will be served. We hope to see everyone arrive wearing their "square" attire. There is an art and music event going on next door at Looking Glass Artist Collective at the same time, so there is plenty to do Saturday in the Rail Walk Arts District.

Rail Walk Studios & Gallery is located at 409 N Lee Street, in Salisbury, NC. Plenty of free parking. For those who can't make it to the reception, regular hours are Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. The show runs through May 28, 2011. Be there or be square!
