‘Tis the Season, at GreenBoat Design

It’s now the season of Yuletide, and Christmas, and Hanukkah, and whatever other festival of light you may celebrate. And we love giving gifts. I have a few ideas to offer, in several different venues:

At Old Barn Hollow Market, on Vestal Avenue in Binghamton, I’m showing and selling Yuletide cards and earrings. It’s a lovely little store, full of the wonderful aroma of gluten-free baking, produce, and, at this time of the year, handcrafted gift items.

At the Fine Arts Society’s December Members’ Show at City Hall, you’ll find 3 pieces of my artwork (yet to be decided), as well as the artwork of many other talented FASST members — and on opening night only, December’s First Friday on December 7, you’ll find more of my earrings along with one-night crafts by other artists and artisans.

At Cooperative Gallery 213, on State Street in Binghamton, I’ll be showing more artwork and earrings, and perhaps some Yuletide cards as well, along with dozens of other Cooperative members showing their work and gift items in the annual Holiday Show.

And at the Broome County Arts Council gallery, State Street, Binghamton, also opening on December 7, you’ll find 2-dimensional art originals from me in the BCAC Members’ show there.

The National Small Works Competiton show at the Windsor Whipworks Art Gallery, Windsor, NY, opens on December 1, and my drawing, Profile, is one of the juried pieces in that show.

AND… although I’m a great proponent of shopping local — which, by the way, is the only way you can find my earrings — remember my Etsy shop, and that you can shop local by clicking the “Shop Local” link on Etsy’s front page. Also take a look at my in-progress gallery on Fine Art America, where you can buy giclee prints of my work — and the work of other local artists — on canvas, paper, and many other substrates and formats.

Quite the exciting season. Let it snow!
