The Everson invites 60 artists to create a work of art in 60 minutes. A big tent is put over the park next  to the museum under which the artist set up their gear. There are sculptors, painters, printmakers, potters, and jewelry makers among us. A frantic hour is spent on a single piece as guests put raffle tickets in their favorite artist's bucket. At the end, a lucky winner is drawn from each bucket and that person goes home with fresh art.

Artists were invited to paint a Adirondack style rocking chair. These are put around Clinton for the summer. At the end of the season, an auction is held for each chair.

Open Figure Drawing

Every Wednesday at the Westcott Community Center, Syracuse, NY

I have been attending Open Figure Drawing since it started with Johnny Robinson in 1989. Even though I can't claim to be a "regular" I have been attending on and off all these years. I participate in the group shows and special events and occasionallty will lend a hand. I had taken some figure drawing classes with Gary Trento, but I credit this group for leaving that door open for me. Drawing and painting the figure from life is among the best art making experiences I've had.

I spent a week at the Humble Hearts School for the deaf in Nairobi, Kenya. We did some blockprinting and sold greeting cards with those images as a fundraiser. Since then we have used the children's artwork and my artwork to creat holiday cards as a funsdraising tool.
