I got a great email from Moe, the owner of Red Riding Hood's Basket, asking if I'd like to exhibit some art at her restaurant! What a fabulous little place and opportunity.
Tin walls and ceilings and antiques fill this quaint place, originally a train depot:)

Opening back up Friday, March 18th, Red Riding Hood's Basket Facebook page has address, phone number and menus available to check out. I can't wait to try the chicken salad and homemade breads.

This place and these people welcome you to come set a spell, isn't that nice to find in our rush around world?!

The library is where you'll find the art, mine hangs there for the next month and then someone else has the room ;) I look forward to seeing all the art from local artists Moe has lined up.
I made some assemblage pieces using vintage photos, doilies, laces and picture frames, that were inspired by the history and energy of this beautiful place. Nice to let vintage stuff shine once again.
I've got an eclectic mix of mono prints, clipboard and canvas art hanging in the library. Please be sure to check out the art and contact me if you're interested in purchasing anything.

I'm very grateful to Moe for this opportunity to share my art with all the folks who'll be stopping by Red Riding Hood's Basket.

The Southwick Jog rail trail runs right by Red Riding Hood's Basket and runs south into Connecticut or north to Westfield. It's a great trail with a few small hills and traffic signals on some busy crossroads.

PS. My friend Craig, owner of Agawam's Java Stop, once gave me some coffee beans and asked me if I could make art with coffee and it turns out I can! His encouragement, support, wall space, recycled materials and ideas have been invaluable to my growth as an artist, thanks a million Craig!
