HI Everyone I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. I have a few announcements this month for those that are interested, including a new featured interview with me in a Philadelphia newspaper, a couple of virtual shows, and the upcoming Chester County Studio Tour. And of course, I'm still busy in the studio making new art. See below:
Update to my interview: I originally did the interview with the reporter a few weeks ago and I mentioned the upcoming rescheduled Chester County Studio Tour and in the interview at the time I said was unsure if it would go ahead. The tour is a go, and takes place September 19-20. (My host is Ivystone Studio in Downingtown, and we will also be hosting an unofficial pre-show on September 18, 5-8 PM.)
New Gallery in West Chester Now Open!
Very recently I was asked to show some work in a brand new gallery in West Chester, PA. The David Katz Gallery is located at 128 East Gay Street and features work by artist David Katz as well as small works from a variety of area artists. I have ten minis currently at the gallery. While the space had a 'soft opening' earlier this July, the official Grand Opening will be Saturday, Sept. 11, 5-8 PM. In the meantime, you are welcome to check out the space (masks are required).
This free annual tour features hundreds of artists at studios all over the county.
Masks are mandatory for admittance and our tour stop will be taking extra precautions this year, including limiting the amount of people in the barn gallery at once. Additional details to be announced soon.
County Collector Lynnette's "County Collector" for the 2020 Chester County Studio Tour (available for 75 dollars during the Saturday and Sunday of the show ONLY) is "Owl and Blue Moon", 6x6 inches, ink and acrylic on hardboard. For more information on the County Collector program, or for maps or other details about the tour, please go to https://www.countystudiotour.com/
Private Studio Visits Available Since many of my art shows and festivals have been cancelled due to the coronavirus, I am now allowing private appointments to visit my artwork in my Norristown, PA, studio. Email me at lynnette@Lynnetteshelley.com with inquiries. All visitors will need to adhere to Covid prevention guidelines such as wearing masks, and no more than two visitors at a time. Please note that unfortunately, my studio is not wheelchair / handicap accessible as it is only reachable by staircase.
