I gave myself a treat last week (when it was NOT snowing!) and visited two favorite galleries.
The George Marshall Store Gallery was actually in the middle of taking down their Winter Invitational exhibit, but the charming curator, Mary Harding, was there and turned the lights on for me. Based on the gallery's website, I missed some wonderful paintings. But look at the ones I DID see! (Apologies for those paintings which are unattributed. Sometimes I just get too excited to be a good documentarian.)

|Man with Ice Chipper ( Michael Stasiuk)|
|Amy Brnger "Winter Roses"|
|I hope to make THIS into a painting of my own.|
|And this one, too.|
The Newburyport Art Association is pretty much "on the way home" from York, Maine. So I stopped into see their Members Juried Show, Part 1. Just to prove what a small world it is, the curator from The George Marshall Store gallery was the juror for NAA! I love that they displayed HER criteria for judging.
