The next show in the Dane Gallery at Indian Orchard Mills in Springfield, MA is one that I have been organizing. It is called "Boca Remembrances", and is the work of nine artists including myself who have attended or given workshops at Casa de los Artists in Boca de Tomatlan, Mexico. It features the work of Bob Masla, who owns the Casa and gives workshops there every winter, one of which I attended a year ago. It also features the work of Heidi Coutu who conducted a workshop there in 2006, which was attended by a number of artists from our community at the mill.
The other artists featured are all artists from the mill who have gone to Boca in the last four years. In addition to myself they include Claudine Bouchard, Minoo Khanbabai, Beryle Salinger-Schmitt, Sue Tosh, and Jerry and Roberta Wilson. The works shown were either done at the Boca, or have been inspired by memories and sketches done there.
The reception will be this Thursday, April 8 from 5-7 pm. The show will run from 4/7 through 5/1.
