Mary Ulm Mayhew

These "little" paintings were juried into "The Little Show" at the Cultural Center in Cedarburg.  ( All 5" x 5" )


Also, Mayhew has a solo show at "Artisan Gallery" near Madison, Wisconsin, in a small historic town named Paoli. The show is  scheduled for June 10th through June 24th.


In addition, she will be participating in the Cedarburg Plein Air Competition, June 16th thru June 23rd, here in Wisconsin.



 

Anne Laddon:

Studios on the Park continues to grow. (see www.studiosonthepark.org) Right now we are teaching art classes to elementary kids. It is thrilling to watch them. I will be having a show at the Bakersfield Museum in June which is keeping me focused.

**********

Ann Dettmer:

My next solo show opens April 1 at Mary Martin Gallery in Charleston SC and runs through the month.  I will attend the opening and this will be my first trip to Charleston, so I am excited about exploring the area.  Then, I open Sept 2 at the Grand Junction Art Center in Colorado with the show running through mid November. And, of course, I am also represented by SmithKlein Gallery in Boulder CO, Howard/Mandville Gallery in Kirkland WA, and North Moon Gallery in Ouray CO. After a couple of intense years in my life during which my energies were turned elsewhere, I find it deeply gratifying to again immerse myself in my work.

JANUARY 2010

Peggy Kingsbury participated in the benefit paint-out for Camp Fire USA in October. The four-day event included 35 invited artists painting the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. Each artist donated one piece for a December auction/sale. In addition, each donated a two-hour “quick draw” painting for a silent auction at the Champagne reception on the final day. Kingsbury was awarded second place for her quick draw painting of Ashley, one of the quick draw models.

Judy Crowe states, "I was very very excited to receive an invitation right before Thanksgiving to become a signature member of American Women Artists (www.americanwomenartists.org).  I was not expecting this at all since I have not been in any of their shows.  It was out of the all since I have not been in any of their shows.  It was out of the blue so needless to say I was very surprised but very thankful and excited to become a member."

Ann Templeton reports, "I have joined two new galleries, Wimberly and Fredericksburg, and will have a one-woman show in Claremont, Georgia on Memorial day.  I am also rejoining Ann Buell's in Ruidoso in the spring."

 Pam Flanders describes her activities... "It HAS been a busy end of 2009 and beginning of the 2010 for me...I am in 4 simultaneous shows this month, not counting the show ending at the Studio on the Park in Paso Robles.  They were/are all local shows. One of my venues was a new contemporary condominium building at 2121 SE Belmont St that had empty lease space on street level near downtown Portland.  The large empty office space was offered to me free of charge until rented.  The residents were so pleased to see me filling those empty walls with fine art and hoped I would make it an official gallery.  Ah, ha....lots of great compliments and a few sales.  However, it seems my presence there for 3 months enticed someone to finally lease the space after 2 years of seeking businesses to do so.  They achieved their goal and I had great exposure in a new upcoming area of town.  A solo show at another downtown building on the SW Waterfront:  www.theardea.com at the 30th floor Penthouse Gallery began in Nov and continued through the end of the year.  Now I still exhibit there with 2 other local art buddies through the end of this month.  It participates in Portland's First Thursday Art event originating in the famous Pearl District.   I also have a solo show at the US Bank Lobby on 16th and Weidler St in Portland continuing to the end of this month as well as a group show at the Aurora Gallery in Vancouver, WA."

Arizona Artist, Ginger Bowen, was recently asked to become a Master Signature Member of American Women Artists.  She also won the prestigious National Arts Club Award at the  Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club 113th Annual Open Exhibition, held in New York. Upcoming events include the newly formed AZ-Eight Art Group's "Color  Fast" Show and Sale.  The show opens March 10 and runs through April 10, 2010 at SunDust Gallery in Mesa, Arizona.

Ann Dettmer reports exciting news...

"Sometimes a different perspective is good; I have one this year.  

For a year I neither created nor sold much visual art.  Instead I created, as best I could, a safe and loving environment in which my mother could live her final year in her home.  Sometimes when I thought about my career during that time of caretaking, I thought: "I used to be a painter."   I can exhibit a flair for the melodramatic when pressed.  

So now, almost four months after Mother's passing, I again have solitude, opportunity for long stretches of contemplation and reading... the things which feed and inspire me to play with color and shape and to make marks on paper and canvas.  My gratitude is poignant and, yes, bittersweet, for it was her passing which opened again this space of quietude which has always been so important to me.      

I am again open to the the energy, excitement, magic which inform my work and allow it to thrive, inspiring myself and others.  I am not starting over but certainly continuing fresh, new, in some ways innocent... yet deepened.   

So while many of you may be talking about paints, framers, which galleries are doing best, classes you are teaching, shows, painting trips, etc... I am relearning how to float in the stardust at night, to find the universe in a poetic line, and to walk even through grief, fear and regret (along with joy, love and kindness) with a sense of the magic of life.  This feels deeper than exciting to me; it feels more like renewing.  

I do have two solo shows summer 2010: oils at Smith Klein Gallery in Boulder CO and mixed media explorations at the Durango CO Art Center Art Library.  I guess having a chance to rebuild my career and my attitude is the good news I have to report.  And that I am alive, thriving and learning to celebrate it all.  I wish you all well.

AUGUST 2009

Ann Templeton was recently named "Master Landscape Artist" by three organizations: The Nomades del Arte, Plein Air New Mexico, and Plein Air Colorado."

Mary Ulm Mayhew participated in the 44th Annual Manito Art Show in the fabulous North Woods (Manitowish Waters, WI) July 16th through 19th.

The juror was Nancy Lamers, Art Professor, Alverno College, Milw. WI. The judge’s comments on Mary’s painting, “Mississippi Migration”: "This is a gem of a painting, small yet full of impact. The gestural hand in laying down individual strokes of paint is deft and experienced. Selected daubs of color, pink spots connecting to pink above and below and blue spots in the foliage connecting to the blue of the sky make good use of color repetition. The oil paint itself is juicy with gorgeous strokes, their built-up edges being allowed to speak for themselves as beautiful paint."
 

Mississippi Migration, Oil, 10x12

Mary adds, “As an interesting note, Manitowish Waters is the home of "Little Bohemia" where "Public Enemies" was filmed in part. Pretty exciting to see the real bullet-riddled windows in the lodge; and the place was filled with tourists, so we had a big turn out at the exhibit and tons of sales."

From Pam Flanders:

“I am in three simultaneous exhibits here in OR at the moment. I am very pleased to be in the upcoming statewide exhibit for PAPO (Plein Air Painters of Oregon) entitled "Celebration Oregon", honoring Oregon's Sesquicentennial. Forty artworks were juried into the show, which will be displayed for the month of October at the High Desert Museum Gallery in Redmond, OR and will be highly publicized. The opening reception will be Oct. 2nd from 5-9 PM.”

Pam’s work is also in the Arts Alliance of Clackamas County's "Art in Public Places" juried exhibition, which will hang through August. She also has seven works at the Developmental Services Building Gallery through Sept 11th.

FROM CHARLOTTE ABERNATHY:

I've been putting most of my creative energy into poetry these days, putting together some chapbooks of my poems, and participating in poetry readings around the state.  Right now, I'm trying to incorporate some of my paintings with my poetry to publish an illustrated collection.  I do have a few art items to share:    I'll be giving an oil painting demo this month for the Southern Oregon Society of Artists, in which I'll show some ways capturing the excitement of outdoor painting while painting from photos or slides.  This summer I'll be participating in a  weeklong artists' residency at the Fields Project in Illinois, followed by an exhibit.

From Ann Templeton:

I’m a signature member of an organization called Plein Air of Colorado, and
was recently named (per artists' vote) "Master Landscape Artist" for their
group. Consequently I will be the featured artist for their group when they
do their annual show in Dallas, early April, at the Southwest Gallery of
Art.

From Lindy Duncan:

As of Jan 1, 2009, I am no longer part of the Portola Gallery in Allied Arts in Menlo Park. It was a decision I made for various reasons and I will sadly miss the other members of the gallery. I will continue to be represented by DE Craghead Gallery, Carmel, CA; Nancy Dodds Gallery, Carmel, CA; Ayre Hill Gallery, Vienna, VA; and the Banana Gallery Hawi, HI. On the happy side of this decision was the move we made to Atherton and the wonderful studio space I now have. It is providing me not only a sunny and beautiful place to paint but with an opportunity to invite people to view my art and buy from me at the studio. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to come by. I will continue to teach workshops so please feel free to contact me. My fall schedule will include Santorini, Greece, October 3-10. For information on this workshop and early sign-up discount see www.toscanaamericana.com. This is a wonderful painting location and will be a trip to remember. Bring home beautiful memories in your paintings that will last a lifetime.

A New Year’s message from Ann Dettmer

"I didn't ask you if you could...  I asked you if you are willing."

I am willing...

    to pay honest and respectful attention to myself and all beings.

    to honor the whole process of living... the constant waxing and waning.

    to walk my path with clarity.

    to fully commit to my life, my work, my relationships.

    to embrace my responsibility for continuing to evolve.

    to live in full abundance.

    to live in full gentleness.

    to live in full kindness.

    to live in full, deep gratitude.

I am willing to live in Love.

Message to members from Evelyne Boren:

I feel badly for not having been part of the group's painting sessions. I keep hoping one of these days! I travel a lot with my husband, Michael, now 83, and painting for 2 to 3 one-person shows a year as well as my 3 watercolor classes per year (which I organize and run myself).  

Next annual one-person opening is at Nedra Matteucci Fine Art in Santa Fe. September 28th, 2007.  95% oils and only 5% watercolors, a big ratio change. I am thoroughly enjoying painting with palette knives. Please come to the opening should you be in town. In February, I received an E Mail from Roberta who manages Nedra’s Canyon Road Gallery, congratulating me as having become their number one seller. I was delighted, to say the least. But all that success keeps me on my toes and close to my easel. My classes both in Mexico, Provence and Tuscany have been sellouts every year, and if you would ever like to venture into watercolor, just to loosen up and get some color theory, come and join me; we have a lot of fun!   

Next year's dates are  Sayulita, Mexico, March 1 to 7th, 2008 . Provence, June 20th to 30th, and October 27th to November 6th, Tuscany. Both European classes are gourmet painting classes; we wine and dine for 7 hours per day, paint for 5 and sleep the rest. Not a bad ratio! But despite the fun we do come home with at least 14 watercolors.

Please don't give up on me, I miss you all! Happy painting Evelyne

Mary Ulm-Mayhew was in two recent Wisconsin competitions and gives us this report:

The Cedarburg Artist Guild Competition, in its seventh year, just ended. It is always the week starting with Father's Day and ending the following Saturday. Cedarburg is just 30 min. north of  Milwaukee and has a large concentration of Historic Stone Houses, as well as a wonderful main street -- always active and evolving. Anyone is eligible to enter the competition, and the first award is $2000. Total sales this year were in the neighborhood of $30,000 --  great for a two day silent auction.

The Downer Avenue Milwaukee Plein Air competition was held at the end of May. It is sponsored by the League of Milwaukee Artists and the Downer Avenue Merchants Assn. and is named for a street in Milwaukee, that is 2 blocks from the Lake front (Lake Michigan). Downer Avenue has an "Art Theater", great local produce and has the feeling of Old Milwaukee; it’s about two miles from Downtown. Palatial homes, Villa Terrace Museum and the Beaches were all included in the areas to paint. The awards were $1500, $700, $400 and some great gifts from the local merchants. If anyone wants a vacation to WI again, consider participating next year.
