Images Cinema–the Gray Wall of Fame–Exhibition Nov 1-30

If you are near or in Williamstown, Massachusetts, please come to the movies at Images Cinema—the films are always the most interesting and top notch…..and this month I have an exhibit on the gray wall.  I’m almost always there at least once a week, so instead of having an opening reception, I hope I’ll see you at the movies!

“This month on the grey wall of fame at Images Cinema:   Regional artist, Viola Moriarty, Still lifes and Figures in the Still life, oil on mdf or birchwood board, selections from recent works, 2011-12. Bold and alive, in both color and painterly brushstrokes, these works are also intimate and quiet, reflecting the personality of the painter herself.  THe collection references her current cancer treatment in the piece titled,  Live Your Life, My Oncologist Says….  Each painting is enigmatic or paradoxical in some way, and inolves a lesson Moriarty set for herself.  Viola Moriarty has had several shows at Images Cinema and is proud to call herself a member.  She has been painting for ten years, and is a 2012-13 recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant Award, and she gratefully acknowledges the foundation’s support for her work.”   —–check it out for the “In the Booth” series!




Livin’ la vida locally: Farmers’ Market and Elm Street Market

If you can be in Bennington on Saturday morning, please come to the Walloomsac Farmers’ market.  This year my Chiles received the honor of being the poster veggie for the market.  The original painting is hanging at the Elm Street Market on Elm Street along with a couple of others.  Both of these places are part of why we love living in this small town, the sense of how hard our farmers and local business people work to feed us and make our lives great.  It was seriously so neighborhood  feeling to see all the folks hanging at the Elm Street Market tonight eating ice cream or partaking of the winetasting.  And tomorrow morning Jon and I will get to go help out at our favorite farm stand, TRUE LOVE FARM.    Karen and Steven’s farm is one of my favorite things about my life.  So, if you are in town — stop by Elm Street Market and see the Chiles painting and pick up a great sandwich.  And come see me and get real beautiful fresh farm fare on Saturday morning at the Walloomsac market.
