City of the Hills Festival CANO- Community Arts Network of Oneonta (formerly UCCCA)

Stagecoach Run Fine Arts Festival, Treadwell, NY

Woodworking and Fine Arts Weekend

Cooperstown Art Association Events

Autumn Cafe

 
In 2014 I returned to the 19th Annual Stagecoach Run Art Festival, the 6th Annual Woodworking & Fine Arts Weekend in Northville, NY and the City of the Hills Arts Festival in Oneonta, NY. I had another month-long solo exhibit in August at the Autumn Café, Oneonta, featuring my personal collection of my work over the years. I illustrated the book cover for Walking the Heart Path- Artists and Advocates in the Global Market.
 

In 2013, I had a solo show of recent selected works at the Autumn Cafe in Oneonta and a piece included in Cooperstown Art Association's annual regional "Essential Art" show. I also exhibited several pieces in CAA's Annual Miniature Invitational Show, "Postcards from Cooperstown", and was awarded third place in the acrylics, oils & pastel division at the Central Adirondack Art Show. I was a participating artist in the 18th Annual Stagecoach Run Arts Festival in Treadwell, NY and in the City of the Hills Art Festival in Oneonta, where I was awarded first place for the fine arts division.

In 2012 I participated in the Canandaigua Plein Air Competition in June and I had a solo exhibit, "The Beauty of Lake Atitlan", in November at the Community Arts Network of Oneonta (formerly UCCCA) in the Wilbur Mansion which featured my plein air and studio works from my 2010 Guatemala trip. I also had a few pieces in Cooperstown Art Association's invitational Miniature Show, "Bite-Sized", in June and July. I received the second place award for watercolors at Colorscape Chenango Arts Festival.
In 2011, I exhibited in Cooperstown Art Association's annual "Essential Art" and received the 'Carefree Gardens' award. I was also included in their annual invitational show, "Fur, Fins & Feathers". I was part of a four-woman exhibit, "Four Queens", at Studio Dionysus in Gilbertsville, NY.
