I am pleased to announce participation in two special exhibits back east with 11 of my paintings from Cuba.

The Cynthia McBride Gallery 215 Main Street, Annapolis, MD is having an opening reception for sixteen artists invited to exhibit with works from the recent “Paint Cuba” Invitational plein air painting event hosted by B. Eric Rhoads, publisher of Plein Air Magazine. The opening is this Sunday, May 1, from 1-4 p.m. I have seven paintings at that gallery and am picturing two here. The show runs through June 24th.

McBride Gallery to see some of my other pieces in this exhibit “Cuba Today: from studies to studio”. Each artist has a couple of plein air paintings done in Cuba, together with larger similar studio paintings.

Art on the Waterfront Gallery in Apalachicola, FL is also hosting artists from the same plein air painting trip to Cuba, with an opening on May7th. That show also runs through the month of June. I have three paintings from our trip at that gallery, with one pictured here. The gallery is located at 117 Market St and is open from 11-5 daily.

This was an historic plein air event and I am still working feverishly on new pieces done from studies in Cuba at my studio on Lopez Island, WA. The most amazing thing I felt about this painting experience was the half-century “time warp” that exists in Cuba! Not just the old cars which number in the tens of thousands just in Havana, but the entire country, it’s people (very friendly) and culture which has developed distinctive styles of music, art, dance and drama, like no other place I have ever travelled!

My paintings done from this trip reflect that unique sense of time and place . . . we will be having our own special opening at Windswept Fine Art Gallery on Lopez during Memorial Day Weekend. Watch for details and invitations to our preview celebration, Friday May 27th!
