Art Work Art Gifts Artist Painted



Art Gallery Shop

The holidays are creeping up and I sure am busy! Make sure to scroll to the bottom to see my new art collections, perfect for gifts!

 I have been painting like crazy, entering art shows, hosting art shows in my home, and trying to learn to market my art...it's exhausting and super wonderful, all at the same time!  Did I forget to mention, taking care of my family -two daughters, husband, and our dog!  Yes, learning to carve out time for my art is a full time project.

To share with you some of my most recent art events is my pleasure.

I hosted a Gallery Hop in our home.  It was a lot of work, but worth it all. I had about fifty people come through and sold a lot of new and older works of art.  My home was turned into a gallery for the evening and a lot of wine, good food, friends, conversation, and art happened. It was a wonderful evening!

The following are the details of this art call.

Art Show Info
Believing Is Seeing
In the world of science as in much of life, seeing is believing. In the world of art, more often the reverse is true: believing is seeing. In the studio an artist borrows from her own imagination and vision, whether from a very personal inner world, or from the material world around her. Starting with a blank canvas, a lump of clay, or a found object, and drawing on her own life experience and beliefs, the artist transforms her vision into art, sharing her truth with others. This juried exhibition of WCA/DC members’ work affirms their belief that art can be seen all around us.
The Women’s Caucus for Art - District of Columbia Chapter has issued a call for entries for a juried show that opens on December 2, 2016 at Artists and Makers Galleries in Rockville, MD. Rebecca Cross, owner of the Cross MacKenzie Gallery in Georgetown, will jury the show.

Artist Interview



Hello!

I am excited to share this recent interview, written by author, Jenn Brink. Jennbrink.com

The article was written for the Fort Hood Officers Spouses Club Newsletter.


December’s FHOSC member spotlight is on Christy Tremblay.  Christy is an Army spouse, mother of two, and profound painter.  I met up with Christy over lunch to talk about her art and what inspires her. 




Christy, a Seattle native, says art has always been a part of her.  “I can’t remember not wanting to do art.  It’s an outlet for me.”  She met her husband, before she began painting professionally, while he was stationed at JBLM.  Next thing she knew, she had traded the stability of her childhood for life as an Army spouse.  At first, Christy taught elementary school, sometimes as an art teacher and sometimes as a teacher who used art in daily lessons.  After her oldest was born, she quit teaching and began to take her art more seriously.  Her husband, knowing that art was important to her, easily fell into it making sure that wherever they live she has her art space.

 

Over the years, she has taken classes and workshops to expand her talents and experimented with many different mediums.  Each phase of her journey has lended form to a style all her own.  Christy told me, “I try and see my work as an artist as always in process and working towards my long term goal of one day opening my own art studio/gallery - outside of my home.”  Her paintings tend to be abstract and mixed media.  Although she mostly utilizes canvas, paper, and wood.  She has also painted on metal and other surfaces.   

 

Working to find a way to expand her art, she decided to paint a house every day for six months. Christy started a blog on March 24, 2014 where she posts her day’s painting, along with a quote or statement about the painting.  It has turned into a series.  I had to ask, “Why a house?”  After consideration, Christy explained that she grew up in the same house and always thought that she would give her children the same stability.  As we all know, that is not the life we military families lead.  Her paintings reflect her feelings of what a home is and have become representative of the stability that is there for her and her family, despite moving every couple of years.  Christy believes that, “It is important to keep working on what you’re passionate about and what your goals are for the future...when we as military families get to finally settle in one spot.”

 

If you’re interested in seeing or purchasing the house series or other works by Christy.  She is doing a show at the Salado Winery on January 24, 2015.  She will have all 183 houses that she has painted as well as some of her larger pieces on display and for sale.  The Salado Winery plans to keep her art up and for sale through the Texas Wine and Rogue Art Festival on March 28 and into April.  You can also view her paintings online through her website www.studiotremblay.com

or her blog (no dot after the www) wwwapaintedhouseaday.blogspot.com.
