Monhegan Island Open Studio/Gallery 2015

Hello, Friends!

I am excited to say that we are less than a week away from opening our studio/gallery on Monhegan Island, Maine! Throughout this post, you'll see several new paintings that will be exhibited in the studio this summer.

The studio will be open to the public daily from 12:00 noon until 3:00pm or by chance or by appointment. The dates of the open studio will continue through Friday 31 July. If you are on the Island, please stop by and say hello; we'd love to chat with you. Both Katy and I will be out painting at various locations around the Island as well as in the studio.

Evening Receptions:
Looking for something to do during the evening hours? Watch for our announcements on the Island Rope Shed, at Shining Sails Bed & Breakfast, and on the Freight Shed on the dock as we will be having a couple of evening wine and cheese receptions in the studio. We look forward to meeting you and sharing stories of Monhegan!

Katharine Krieg will also be offering a three-day workshop on Monhegan on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, 13-15 July.

Here is what Katy has to say about her workshop:
"This 3 day plein air workshop is about what goes into laying the groundwork, or armature, for a successful painting. Design, composition, value, shape placement, limited color palettes, and keeping things simple will be the focus throughout the 3 days. After a short demo in the morning, students will create paintings using knowledge discussed from the morning demo. Watercolor and oil mediums will be used although drawing will be demonstrated for creating field sketches. Group is kept small for individual attention."

Additional information is included in Katy's blog at

There are still spots open. If you're interested, contact her through her web site at for further information or to sign up. As in the past, I'm sure that an informative and fun time will be had for all!

In Conclusion:
Look for us on Island during the month of July!
All for now. Until next time...
