A Good Thing Keeps On Going Out On The 'Neck
I had a great show at the Kahn Studio in Gloucester. The atmosphere at Rocky Neck is wonderful and I came to understand why it is the oldest continuously-running art colony in the Americas. I did not want to leave. I wanted to stay and keep showing my work; I wanted to stay and paint. My wish came true when I mentioned this to my hostess, Ellen Lefavour, who in turn informed me there was one vacant space left for the season. That's when things got really interesting.
Seizing the moment, Stevie and I sprung into action and snatched it right up. We began an amazing adventure that put us in the position of opening our own studio and gallery space within one week of learning the space was available. All the hard work I have put into producing beautiful, interesting works and making sure they are tastefully presented meant that I had a lot of work ready to show. This was incredibly satisfying. We cleaned the space; no time for much else before hanging the works, as our goal was to have a soft opening for the Adriana Mederos Studio on July 7th for the monthly Nights on the Neck event. We did it and the public's response was fantastic! We had the place open and fully operational by Saturday. This means we also have a working studio from which I will be able to do demos for some of the different techniques I use in my work. I am so excited everything has worked out so flawlessly!
Be sure to put Rocky Neck on your weekend (or weekday!!!) schedule as we'd love to see you in our new place. Beaches, restaurants, sightseeing, and vistas abound, so bring your camera and hit the road to the North Shore! We're there Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 8 p.m., now through Columbus Day 2011.
