A Photo Journal – Summer 2012

The summer of 2012 was ideal! I can not recall a season that was more fun, informative, and filled with creative camaraderie!

In June, my company West Wind Fine Art, LLC sponsored a painting demonstration by Richard Schmid and Daniel J. Keys at the West Falmouth Library on Cape Cod.

Then Daniel did two back to back painting workshops sponsored by my colleague Sheryll Reichwein and her artist husband, Douglas, at the Beach Rose Inn.  Both events sold out in a matter of a week and were extremely well received by artists in the New England area. Consequently, more events are definitely being planned for next year.

July 6th to 8th were even more special!

I was so fortunate to host an amazing Fine Art show – A Return to Understated Elegance at The J. Erik Jonsson Woods Hole Center owned by the National Academy of Sciences. And, on the evening of the 8th, Richard Schmid gave an inspiring digital presentation to a packed audience. Collectors traveled to attend Richard’s program and view the paintings and sculpture in the show from all around America. So, I’m really pleased to state that my mission to spread joy through Fine Art is definitely on a roll.

On a personal note, I want to express my gratitude to the managers of the Jonsson Center, Joanne Doherty, Donnie Elichalt and their assistant Ruane for their professional expertise in helping to make everyone feel so welcomed to one of the most beautiful and historic places on the Cape.
