Woo-hoo!

This week, our online gallery features 4 new artists.

“Mama’s Home.” Artist Sabra Gallo says: “On a family vacation to Costa Rica several years ago, we had a fantastic late night excursion to watch sea turtles come ashore and lay eggs. Truly magnificent creatures, and no photos (or flashlights) were allowed, so they were as undisturbed as possible. I made this mosaic to represent the images I will forever have in my mind’s eye.”

“Pride” (Amy Schneider)

“”Outside Angelina’s” (Ellen Wentworth)

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)

“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.”
