Pierscape...Week Long Arts Festival!

How does a week long festival of fine art, drama, poetry, Italian food, creative writing, sculpture sound to you?  It has been an annual event here in Sydney, NS since 1997 and never disappoints.

The Whitney Pier Society for the Arts is gearing up for another great festival  
May 9th - 14th, 2011

I spent most of last weekend and early part of the week getting some paintings ready for this wonderful event. Here are the four  I submitted, they are all 5x7 inches:

Mixed Media
watercolor, watercolor pencil, acrylic
5x7 inches
Live Simply
Be Happy

Three Amigos

Live Simply
5x7 inches

Be Happy
Watercolor with collage
5 x 7 inches

Three Amigos
5x7 inches

I was going like a mad woman trying to get the paintings finished and finally framed, but in the end I was happy with the result.  And hey, I wouldn't complain if I sold one or two :-)

I always enjoy  Pierscape.  And opening night is a real treat.  Here is an example how things looked at the fine art display from last years event.   (And if you look closely, you can see one of my crow paintings.  It's kind of like playing Where's Waldo. )

Everyone is invited to the Opening ceremony at 7:30pm on Monday, May 9th in the Whitney Pier Memorial Junior High (199 Jamieson St. Sydney, NS).
There will be a large exhibit of fine art, as well as music and refreshments.
Dr. Elizabeth Beaton will be  the special guest and key note speaker.

You can even join in the festivities by participating in one of these amazing workshops, too!
