New Art Gallery Show Coming Up

January 2013 brings a New Year and a new show at Kathy’s Kove Art Gallery.  Continuing my Barns theme, I will include some new barn prints in the January-February show, as well as some prints from my “Carousel Crazy” series.  Call it a “Barns & Horses” show.  The gallery has been great fun – and a lot of work, but that kind of work is welcome!  I’ve collected quite a store of frames over the past year, so I’m well-equipped for the job.  Right now, I’m going through the photos and selecting which ones will make the cut.

I’m looking at the weekend after New Year’s Eve to install the new show.  If you are in the Warren County, NJ, area, drop by on that Saturday.  Kathy’s Kove Art Gallery is located at 5 Route 57 East, Washington, NJ. 07882.  See you soon!

“Carosel Crazy” Display at Clinton Book Shop

Today I hung a new display of art prints at the Clinton Book Shop, located in Clinton, NJ.  The new display includes paintography art prints selected from my “Carousel Crazy” series, featuring carousel horses I photographed during the annual 4-H Fair in Hunterdon County, NJ, this past August.  I love going to the fair!  My favourite part is the 4-H competitions where students show their animals and their handling skills.  It’s great.  Are there fairs near you?

The Clinton Book Shop has a nice children’s reading room in the back where my prints are on display.  These colorful 8×10 inch prints are installed in 8×10 inch clip frames, which are glass panels with a heavy cardboard back held together by metal clips.  I like clip frames because they are inexpensive and blend in with any decor.

All of the prints at the Clinton Book Shop are available for purchase, right in time for the holiday season!  Hope to see you there.  Visit the Clinton Book Shop website for more information and driving directions.

Cheers!

Anne Freeman’s New Gallery Up & Running

“Red Barn With Stormy Sky” – Copyright Anne M. Freeman

Hi All – I’ve been offline for a few weeks due to the hurricane, but now I’ve returned.  Good to be back!

I am so pleased to announce that the new art gallery at Kathy’s Kove, 5 Washington Ave, Washington, NJ (Warren County) is now up and running.  I installed my first show on Saturday, November 10, just a few days after Hurricane Sandy ripped through New Jersey.  Fortunately I did not experience any damage, and the gallery had electric back in three days.  Installing the show was a great diversion from the storm, for sure.  I installed my “Old Barns & Outbuildings” series for the first display.  With the cost of the storm, I anticipate that holiday sales will be slow, so I was sure to include low-cost item  like cards and postcards.  I’ll also be adding matted prints without frames.

On Thursday, November 15, we held a grant opening celebration at the gallery during the Washington Art Walk.  I was not able to do all of my normal marketing to announce the opening due to the storm, (I didn’t have internet access for two weeks!), but  folks stop by to visit, nonetheless.   It just felt so good to finally have the gallery open and a home for my work.

I encourage you all to check around where you live to find out if towns are holding similar events.  The Washington Art Walk is sponsored by the Washington Business Investment District, or BID.  Many towns have BIDs, so that would be a place to start.  If you live in commuting distance to Washington, NJ, visit the BID office website to learn how to become a participating artist.  Here is their link: http://www.washingtonbid.org/wash/index.php.  Not only did I receive free exposure – and was included in a press release put out by the BID – I was invited to be a part of the Art Gallery by the owner after seeing my work.  You never know what can happen!

The best thing I did for my photography was to get out there and share my work.  I hope you do the same!

Cheers!

Washington Art Walk A Success!

My Recent Art Walk Poster

This past Thursday evening was the Art Walk in Washington, NJ.  What a delightful evening!  The weather was warm and clear, which brought folks out to enjoy all of th art on display at various businesses throughout town.  I was stationed at the Warren County Habitat for Humanity office and thrift store, where my “Old Barns and Outbuildings” prints were on display.  Close to 25 people came through that evening to view and purchase my art.  Thanks to all of you who visited and special thanks to those of you who purchased prints!

It was recommended to me to have smaller and lower-priced items on hand for the reception.  I brought several nice baskets along that were full of 4×6 and 5×7 prints as well as a basket of 5×7 framed prints. Those were the big sellers that evening.  Inexpensive and easy to carry.  I also gave out postcards for the gallery opening in November.

I met a woman from the Phillipsburg NORWESCAP, who invited me to participate in their fundraiser this coming Friday.  I’ll be presenting a basket of framed 5×7 prints from my “Barns and Outbuildings” series and several seasonal prints.  They will also distribute my gallery opening postcard, for which I am very happy.  All in all, it was a very successful evening!

Does your town have an Art Walk?  If not, consider contacting your local Business Improvement District (BID), or if your town does not have a BID, check with the local Chamber of Commerce to determine what business promotion organization might be operating, and encourage them to sponsor an Art Walk.  Art Walks are a great way to bring people to your town and local business, and provide exposure to local artists.

Cheers!

Farms focus of October Art Walk 

 

The Washington Art Walk was launched last November by the Washington Business Improvement District and has been embraced by both the local Art Community as well as artists from as far away as Maryland, New York and even Rwanda.  Several Washington Borough Businesses within a walkable area participate by designating a section of their business for a “Mini Art Gallery”.

Although the art is on display for nearly one month at a time, there is an Artists’ Reception the third Thursday of each month from 5-8 pm, during which there is a chance to meet the artists.  Complimentary light refreshments are offered, and music or live demonstrations are often part of the evening as well.  The Art Walk has received much positive coverage by the press and offers an invaluable experience to the Community at large by making Art accessible to all and providing a home for Artists of varying backgrounds.

 

Farms are the focus of parts of the October Art Walk. The October artists’ reception will be held Thursday, Oct. 18, from 5-8 p.m.

 

Anne M. Freeman, raised “among the rolling hills” of Hunterdon County and currently residing in High Bridge, will feature Paintography (a blend of digital photography with artistic software) from her collection “Old Barns & Outbuildings.” The works will feature the details of seasoned structures from Hunterdon and Warren Counties.

 

“I am most intrigued by color planes and flattened perspectives,” she said of her work, which includes pieces solely featuring the colorful doors and windows of farm buildings.

 

She felt the collection of farms in this series, which is always a favorite, is especially fitting for the fall season.

 

Mike Dziomba, of Mendham, will make anyone who grew up on a farm nostalgic with his acrylic paintings featuring classic red barns, green pastures, and blue skies.

 

A self-taught artist, his focus is on rustic and quiet scenes. He scours the area for interesting subjects and then recreates the scene with his brush. His goal is to bring the viewer into the painting and instill in them the same sense of tranquility he had during the painting experience, he said.

 

Artists interested in having their work considered for an Art Walk should emailwashingtonartwalk@gmail.com. For a full listing of participating businesses and artists, or for more on the WBID, visit http://www.washingtonbid.org, call 908-689-4800, or check out the Washington BID or the Washington Art Walk on Facebook.
