Hello friends. I hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of their summer. My oldest daughter graduated from High School last week. I am super Happy for her and very excited to see her move into the beginning of adult hood. OK so onto some show news or event news lol.
Lets start off with shows for the season. I am doing a few things different this year. Including my home sale that may go live to the internet for fans and collectors that live far away and cant make it out.
First SOMETHING NEW!
September 24th 11am-5Pm I will be opening my home to the public. Well my Work studio area. 😉 This area will be transformed into a spooky space filled with New creations. All of these creations will be offered for sale. I will have all sorts of paintings, one of a kind functional art pieces, hand made Jewelry, 3D art pieces, and some of my clothing designs. I am offering this so fans and collectors can come out and meet with me in a not so crazy setting as some know my shows get pretty busy and its hard to chat with so many people around. I live in the Hudson Valley Region of New York Ulster County to be exact. The address will be posted a few days prior to my Spooktacular event. This is a one day only event. Will last only between the hours of 11am-5PM. NO EXCEPTIONS. Unless notified email in advance for a later or earlier time in the day. The Hudson Valley offers many great fun things to do in the Autumn season. If you are from out of the area and would like to make it to my In Home Spooktacular event plan the rest of your day at a local farm picking apples and pumpkins, eating at one of the many great restaurants or check out some of the Haunted Houses that will be opening that weekend. Plan ahead create your own Spooktacular weekend!
October 1-2nd The Hudson Valley Garlic Festival. THE DATES have changed for one of my most favorite shows!! The garlic festival usually opens the last weekend in September every year. NOT this year. It is now The first weekend in October. 🙂 No problems here. I’m in lol. I cant miss this Great fun filled show.!! The Kiwanis club does a spectacular job organizing this event every year. You don’t want to miss The Hudson Valley Garlic Festival if you are in the area that weekend. LOTS AND LOTS OF GARLIC!! Free samples of Food galore. Arts and Crafts vendors, live music, cooking demonstrations from the nations top chefs., garlic farmers from around the country, a children’s area with arts and crafts tent where children can decorate their own pumpkins and other fun things for free. Wear COMFY shoes and dress to entertain the weather. Temps are always up and down that time of year. I will be in the same spot right next to Junction stage. Look for my tent or my friend Merve the Mummy standing right outside. You can purchase tickets on the Hudson Valley Garlic Website or at participating stores or you can wait till day of your visit and purchase at the gate.
October 8th 12:30-4:00 The Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Mark your calendars fiends!! I will be hosting a Spooktacular painting class once again in the breathtaking Sleepy Hollow Cemetery chapel. Tickets will go on sale in September. SO if you want to go… Clear the date and time and head on over to this fun event. I will be offering up how to create 2-3 different scenes on 11″x 14″ canvas panels. Participants get to choose what scene and characters they want to create the day of the event. Everything will be provided for you. Just bring yourself and an open mind. must be 18 or older. I do offer classes for younger age groups but these must be booked in advance. The Chapel itself is unique with Stained glass windows that tell the story of Washington Irving. Once you step on to the grounds of the cemetery. It is like you are transported to another world. The world of the dead that is. Not in a creepy way but in a most peaceful way. The grave sites are some of the most spectacular you will ever see in the country. The Sleepy Hollow Cemetery offers tours of the cemetery during the day and at night. Farther into the season the groups get larger and more frequent. You can roam the grounds yourself but you may miss some of the prominently named that are resting in the cemetery. It is VERY large and you can most definitely get lost without a map! SO find a map and get to walking. Go tot eh sleepy Hollow Cemetery website to check out dates and times for their guided tours. Don’t forget to mark your calendar October 8th!! Tickets will go on sale in September.
More show dates will be added shortly. 🙂
