The Freelance Artist Network that I started in 1985 is still going strong! Thirteen artist members are exhibiting at the Falmouth Art Center June 2-30th. Enjoy a variety of art from, painting with tissue paper, 3-D cut paper, oil, acrylic and water color paintings, children's book illustrations and more. Check out the center for hours at:

Sandy Valpey Cordts FAN member and exhibitor, booked the gallery. Susan L Harte designed the postcard.

Erica Szuplat, Sandy Valpey, A. Michele, Linnea Leeming, Christine Hannon and myself, labeled  the cards, books and hung the show last Thursday
The opening was very well attended. I liked this display of black and white outfits with cut paper artist Susan Novich from FAN on left, and the most fabulously dressed lady between us!

 In the small pictures are: myself with my tissue paper paintings, High school friends of mine, Lugene and Michael, Sandy Valpey Cordts with Executive Director, Suzy. and Fan member and exhibitor Carol Way Wood. 

For the demo part of the evening, Sandy explained how she creates her architectural renderings to an engaged crowd. And I showed kids and adults how to color with aqua pencils and water filled brushes.  (A. Michelle who spent hours hanging the show, is pictured coloring at the far right of the coloring table).

Some kids colored, but mostly adults! My coloring books, posters, and DIY greeting cards will be on sale at the gallery all month long. Check them out on if you can't get to the gallery.

Fabulous food was brought by FAN members. The most exotic snack were the little boiled and salted crispy crabs brought by member and exhibitor Susan Medyn.
Pictured here are some of the artfully painted and colored book marks that were colored at the opening.

Other FAN artists exhibiting but not pictured above are: Lesley Breen Withrow, Nicole Tamarin, Mary Beth Cryan and Erica Campanella.

 The night Ended with my BFFs at Sea Food Sams. Clockwise from bottom left: Sandy, Lugene, Corey and me.
