ARTmonday: Art + Cocktails Truro (Paintings, Collage, Mixed Media)

Last weekend I held a pop-up art gallery event on the Cape. My husband hung 96 works of art on our very bare white walls. It was so much work, but it looked fantastic, and ultimately everyone had fun. We even sold some pieces.

We hung oil paintings, acrylic on board, ink and pastels on rice paper, collage, acrylic on canvas, encaustic, and others. Styles included graphic abstracts, abstracted landscapes, portraits, marine-inspired abstracts, and more. We also had a lot of photography, which I will post next Monday.

Here is a sampling of work we displayed from 18 different artists. You can check out some installation photos on my StyleCarrot and StyleCarrotCurates Instagram accounts, as well as some artist’s feeds; we used #artandcocktailstruro. If you’re interested in learning more about or purchasing any of these pieces, email me at stylecarrot@gmail.com

ARTmonday: 10 Colorful Landscapes by Portland, Maine Artist Joanne Gravelin

In searching for local New England artists last week on Saatchi Art, I came across the work of Joanne Gravelin, a Portland, Maine-based artist who creates colorful landscapes in mixed media.

Gravelin, who grew up in rural Vermont, studied printmaking and painting at Maine College of Art. According to her bio on the Demark Art Center in Denmark, Maine where Gravelin was an artist-in-residence, her work depicts “scenes of the failed American Dream, false paradises, natural wastelands and suburbia.”

I’m following Gravelin’s work (and cat) on Instagram @MyLastPlaceOnEarth with my new art-dedicated Instagram account @StyleCarrotCurates, which I hope you will follow! It’s all art, all the time. (My decor, flowers, food, cat, books, art, sunsets, etc account is @StyleCarrot if you’re not already following, please do.)

Here are ten of Gravelin’s colorful landscapes. Sorry I don’t have full info on every one. I’ll try to contact her and update. Plus, I may need one for our Florida condo.
