Though it may not seem so when you step outside, fall is right around the corner – and with it, new exhibitions. I’m excited to announce my participation in two upcoming shows this fall, and hope you’ll join me at one or both.
The first is the 2017 Decorator Show House in Ellicott City. Since 1987, the Historic Ellicott City Decorator Show House has brought local artists and designers together to decorate rooms of magnificent Howard County homes. This year’s show house is the White Hall Estate.
The estate was built between 1800 and 1810, and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. Myself and my fellow artists from the Artists’ Gallery of Ellicott City have been invited to display artwork in the specific areas of house, lending those who attend the show the unique and exciting opportunity to wander a historic estate while catching glimpses of the work of local artists.
The Show House will be available for public viewing from Sept. 24-Oct.22, Tues-Sat from 10-4pm and Sundays from 12-5pm. Tickets can be purchased online, or at the door, and proceeds benefit the Historic Ellicott Revitalization Grant Program and the restoration of Carrollton Hall.
The second exhibition I have planned for this fall is a joint show with my friend and fellow artist Carolyn Avery, at The Yellow Barn Studio and Gallery from October 7-8. There will be a reception, with refreshments and snacks, from 2-5 p.m. that Saturday. The exhibition will be open each day from 12-5 p.m.
I’m looking forward to exhibiting some of my collected works alongside my friend, and hope to see you there. You can find The Yellow Barn Studio at 7300 MacArthur Blvd., Glen Echo, Md.
Enjoy the rest of your summer, stay cool, and I hope to see you this fall.
