0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 64 Gallery

LGBTQ Pride. A rock band. James Joyce.

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 dwoog@optonline.net, to share your work with the world.

“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)

“First Red Rose of Summer, River Lane” (Larry Untermeyer)

“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.”

 

0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 61 Gallery

After 60 weeks, we’ve turned a corner.

Only 2 this week’s art submissions refer specifically to the pandemic.

This feature began as a way for reader/artists to express their feelings — about COVID, the quarantine, the political climate, you name — through their favorite medium.

Now it’s evolved. The works we feature are more wide ranging. They’re a bit more nuanced. Just one more sign that the world is moving on.

As always: This is your gallery. Some of you are professionals; most are amateurs. Experience does not matter. We want all your art!

Student submissions are especially welcome. So are artists who have not submitted previously. Email dwoog@optonline.net, to share your work with the world.
