Koda, left, and Squirrel, by Susan Miiler
Susan Miiller, organizer of the Small Works Animal Exhibit that is involving Art for Shelter Animals Project painters, has made a lovely poster for the show with some ASAP paintings and these two pieces that she made.
I really like Susan's work. Check out her website, http://www.susanmiiller.com/ and you will see her very distinctive style, with lovely lights and shadows, and rich and interesting colors.
I'm so happy that she is offering us this opportunity to show - and I am so thrilled that the ASAP painters are pitching in!
Here's the lowdown on the shows:
Susan Miller has engineered two exhibit opportunities that are open to ASAP painters. They are both intended to benefit the Port Jervis/Deerpark Humane Society, in New York state, near where we used to live. It's a good shelter, and could really use our help.
Here's the website: http://www.pjhumane.org/ . The animals to be painted are at the very bottom of the home page.
First of all, of course, when you finish your piece, please send an image to me or Sheila for posting on the blog!
The first exhibit takes place in the office of Jeff Parker, 156 Pike St., Port Jervis. Parker is a podiatrist and an artist and an animal lover. He has a very nice space to show and sell art. That exhibit goes from July 26-Sept. 10.
Then, the work will move to the Deerpark Museum, for a one-day show on Sept. 18. Anyone who is in the area is invited to come and demonstrate during the day.
After that, the work will go to the shelter, in the usual way.
As always, you can frame the pieces if you want, but you don't have to. It would be great if you would put a wire on the back for hanging.
Please mail your pieces to:
