Those are 3 of the very intriguing — and colorful — themes in this week’s art gallery.
We’ve also got beautiful spring flowers. Lots of ’em!
A gentle reminder: We want all kinds of art. Watercolors, oils, charcoal, pen-and-ink, acrylics, macramé, jewelry, sculpture — send it in!
We are particularly interested in student submissions, and readers who have not submitted before.
Some of you are professional artists; most are amateurs. Experience does not matter! Email firstname.lastname@example.org, to share your work with the world.

Untitled. Artist Eric Bosch says: “Like all kids of the ’50s & ’60s, we always imagined ourselves in a band. One of our pals — Bill Harley — actually made this dream come true, We all just got together for our annual weekend golf reunion in Vermont. I painted this for the occasion, and gave each of them a framed print.”
“Spring Flowers” (Julianne Lowenthal)
“Nature’s Beauty” (Lauri Weiser)

“Albino” (Karen Weingarten)
“Irises on Iris Lane” (Elena Nasereddin)
Artist Brian Whelan says: “Bloomsday is an international celebration of ‘Ulysses,’ written by James Joyce. The big thick book takes place in 1 day: 16th June. 1904 Dublin has celebrated it for many years. Now it has spread all over the world. There are readings, re-enactments, eating a kidney for breakfast, a brothel scene, etc. A few years ago I was approached by someone in Taiwan who was going to Dublin for the Bloomsday Festival. He wanted my image of Joyce to be reproduced on his group’s t-shirts. In their celebrations they came across a painting I did that hangs permanently in the library of the James Joyce Centre in Dublin.”
