Big doings! — Joel VanPatten

Lots of big things happening in the VP Studios this summer. And most of it is last minute, unexpected and very exciting!

 Joel's work was juried and approved as part of the Art on the Green, put on by the Center for the Arts in New London,  New Hampshire. Acceptance to show time was less than a week so we were too busy putting a booth together to promote it much.

It was so nice to see everyone at the show and response to Joel's work from the art community was very positive! Big thank you's to friends Holly and Chris Nagle for helping with booth design and materials. It was Joel's first outdoor show and a bit of a learning curve. 

However, that was a great jumping off point for two other shows later this summer. Next up is "Art on the Bartlet Mall", part of Yankee Homecoming in scenic Newburyport, Massachusetts.  (No really, it's scenic, picturesque, and a disgustingly perfect seaside town. Can't wait to attend!) That is a weekend show, July 29 & 30 and part of the events kicking off Newburyport's week-long celebration.

In August, it's a short trip south to Nashua,  New Hampshire for the Nashua Art Association's event in Greeley Park. (Also a location that is picturesque and easy on the eyes.) That event is August 19-20.

Other blog posts are coming soon, including Joel's adventures in the museum world.
