This is an on-going online show. Each month A Color Project changes the hue it uses for inspiration.
The first month was yellow and I entered with the Star Alps Delta sticker from the 1970's (above) mentioned in my Pecha Kucha Talk (below).
As the hues come up and as inspiration rises I participated in this fun and color rich project. I entered images thru December 2013 starting in March with a brilliant yellow, then April an amazing copper like green, May was a phenomenal red, June a deep purple, July a soft gray, and for August celestial blue .... my last images was posted in December 2013.
Happy New Year to you all,
This year I am starting off the year with a speaking engagement at the Fleming Museum in Burlington VT for an event called Pecha Kucha Vol. 9

OPINION: Are non-traditional venues a help or hindrance to the fine arts?
by Caroline Tavelli-Abar
Thank you for posting!!
“The role that “fine art“ plays in our culture is to expand our way of seeing and understanding the world around us. Artists through their study and perseverance develop a sensitivity and insight to our world”
...Yes, I find this to be true for myself as well
“that the layman does not have."
...There is a wonderful honesty in the vision of a person not used to looking at art that can help artists of any caliber further understand the world around them, and sometimes even clear up blind spots we all have. [...]
This show "Opportunity Knocks" at Judy Jensen’s Spontaneous Intermittent Gallery lasted for two months in the summer of 2008.
Many of my works were on view that summer of 2007, the events included work in the windows, a three person show, and a group show.
Festival of Fine Art
Festival producers are publishing a catalog of festival participants. The purpose of the catalog is to documents festival participation and create a record of the work. It is also a useful reference for those folks who wish to learn more about an artist.
The catalog will be released at the Gala Reception on June 1st and be available at the Church Street Marketplace Sale on June 2nd and at Frog Hollow Vermont State Craft Centers as well as at Kasini House Artshop at 64 North Street in Burlington.
