Last Friday night, I went to the "Prints of the Year Show" in Portsmouth, that's hanging in the NHAA Gallery. I was happy to see that my print "Goffstown Stream" was hung in a great spot near the entrance. My friend Lori and I had a good time visiting the two exhibit openings that our works are part off. Thanks to her husband, who drove us, and her brother and sister-in-law who came along for the fun. The evening was capped off with a yummy dinner at a Mexican restaurant in Portsmouth.
Last weekend, my friend Lori, and I brought our prints to Portsmouth to participate in the "Prints of the Year Show" at the NHAA Gallery. I had quickly finished the final layer of the "Goffstown Stream" print (see previous post), and framed it in time for the drop off.
At the Gallery
The funny part of the story is that we have art in two shows, and both galleries are having their openings on Friday night. One is in Concord from 5-7pm, and the other is in Portsmouth from 5-8pm. The plan right now is to go to Concord's McGowan Gallery right at 5, and then drive over to the seacoast in time of the second one!
I am an art teacher who loves to draw and paint, as well as illustrate for children. I also enjoy printmaking---especially block prints. Whatever I do as an artist, I have to remind myself---no pressure---it all starts by just putting pencil to paper.
