Fortunately we left a day early for New York City where I exhibited again at the Architectural Digest Design Show this year. An untimely late winter blast created a minor blip in the show's setup schedule so we were hotel-bound for a day but fortunate to have gotten into the city ahead of the white mess. Looking out the window through the veil of the falling snow I spied this water tower perched atop a distant building. I've always loved these towers, like rockets poised for lift-off at any moment they sit silently overlooking the city's streets and it's indifferent passerbys. Some things have a certain 'cool' factor and, at least to my eye, these have it!
Mark will be displaying some works (available for sale - sales tax free!) in beautiful Watch Hill, Rhode Island from July 29th through August 7th, 2016. The biennial show, the Watch Hill Memorial Library Art Show, is a benefit exhibition that takes place at the Watch Hill Chapel directly across from the Ocean House. Daily hours are noon to 4pm. While there enjoy the quaint village of Watch Hill, it's pristine beaches and the one of the oldest carousels in the country.
I am often fascinated by the effect the weather has on the things around us. Some of the most beautiful objects are devastatingly weather worn. Mother Nature is certainly in the process of creating another work of art out of aged blue boards that still remain on my 1920's vintage garage, the place my heavy machinery calls home and the other half of my studio.
