November Exhibit at Historic Northampton

About a month ago I got an email about a sudden opening in the Contemporary Art at Historic Northampton program for the month of November. The organizers were looking for an artist with an already-made body of work who could tie the work in to the collection at the Historic Northampton Museum. I thought immediately of my Pilgrim series, so I fired off an email and within a couple of days I was selected to fill the opening.

Thus began a frenzy of activity in the midst of which I now stand firmly.

Speaking of standing in the midst, I'm calling the show 'Welcome to Nonotuck.' Nonotuck is a native American word that means "the midst of the river" and Nonotuck is the name of the place that became Northampton, Massachusetts, in 1654.

Below is an e-card with all of the information about the show. If you're in the area, I hope you'll stop in to see the show!

Congratulations Annie on your show! How serendipitous that you had a body of work that worked so well with the museum's theme. Wish I could extend my stay in Massachusetts and be able to enjoy it in person. We'll raise a glass to our Blurb book edition of these prints.

Lovely, lovely, lovely! I love all your woodcuts but these are really stunning.
