1846 Edwin

still life, acrylic, 6" x 6" $100 click here  to purchase 

I attended the opening reception for Site Specific, A Selection of American Perceptual Paintings at Concord Art Association tonight. Curated by George Nick, this exhibit is dedicated to his mentor, Edwin Dickinson. Over 30 artists are featured including a lot of my favorites like Catherine Kehoe, Nancy McCarthy, Kimberlee Alemian and of course George Nick and Edwin Dickinson!  
The exhibit runs until August 13th. 


  1. it has been too long since i have posted. thunderstorms got me up very early this morning so i went to your blog.

    i am not sure but i think i saw a painting by edwin at a museum in KC a few years ago. maybe Lillian will remember.

    for the first day of summer this still life is bright and cherry kinda reminds me of the gardens around here.

    keep painting


  2. Hi Marge, I had never seen a painting in real life by Edwin Dickinson - I have books here but of course, it is not the same - they were so delightful to see in person, I think I might go back - the opening was very well attended, it was a festive vibe. I'd also like to wander around Concord a bit when it is not a weekend - it has been a while since I've been there and I recently read an article in the New Yorker about the Concord 'Ladies 4 O'clock Club" that I'd like to find out a little more about this club.

  4. Edwin would have loved this still life. i like how you added in that one pink flower. it made a nice break in the flow of yellow flowers.

    i was not with Marge the day she saw the edwin in KC.
