I Heart Amtrak

Tomorrow's the day... headed down to NYC. I'll arrive in the evening and then Sunday probably spend most of the day at or around the Affordable Art Fair. I just thought I'd post one more time here about it – stop by the Uprise Art booth to have a look at my work and maybe even catch me for a quick hello!

Love me a long train ride...

New York City, here I come!

I've been really excited about this: I will have work exhibited and available for sale at the Affordable Art Fair in New York next week! I won't actually be there the whole time, but I am going to be at and around the Uprise Art booth on the last day, Sunday the 22nd.

April 18–22, 2012

Affordable Art Fair New York City

(Uprise Art booth B-6)

7 West 34th Street near Fifth Ave., NYC

If you're in the area, I hope you'll come out and say hello! It would be great to see you.

I will represented by several works: two acrylic paintings on canvas, two framed ink drawings, and five unframed collages on paper. This is all work completed in 2012, with the collages being the newest. To pique your interest, I'd like to share a series of images of the work that you can see in person at the fair – some shown here on the blog before, some not. Enjoy!

Still Lives: Work by Jan Nagle and Amy Greenan

I am so excited to tell you about my latest exhibition, which opens this Friday. It's a two-person show featuring me and my good friend, Jan Nagle, who works mainly in photography and video. Our work intersects in many ways and I can't wait to see how it looks hung together in one space.

Big thanks to curator Nancy Nixon for inviting us together for this opportunity at the Octagon Gallery of the Patterson Library in Westfield, NY. It's an amazing space – both gallery and library – that is worth seeing for the architecture and displays alone, not to mention the artwork. I'll be showing paintings, drawings, and collages dating from 2010 through 2012, including works never seen before, like this painting.

Blast Off! Two, Acrylic on canvas, 50" x 34", 2012.

I'm excited about this one because it is starting to bridge the "blacking out" of the house forms that I've been doing in the smaller works on paper that I've been enjoying making so much, into paintings on canvas.

I hope that if you're local you'll be able to attend the opening this Friday, or come see the show while it's up for the next month.

The details are:

Still Lives: Works by Jan Nagle and Amy Greenan Octagon Gallery at the Patterson Library, 40 S. Portage St., Westfield, NY
