Just down the street from the DVAEC is The Artists Gallery at 4 E. Church St., Fred., MD I had the chance to run into some friends at the gallery and to see Chris Stovall's works. Her show is "Birds & Bees" paintings on wood and canvas. Colorful pieces in a abstract realist style. Along with her paintings she has clay pieces that were treated as scratchboards, China clay with a coating that is removed to expose the white background. Marilu does scratchboards as many of you know and could have seen at Artomatic. Yet, these are hanging free form and have dimension to them, similar to a relief sculpture. A interesting compliment to her paintings.

I went in and out of a few of my favorite shops, The Muse on Market St., is one stop I like to make when looking for a special artsy gift. The evening was lovely, the sky was clear, the temp's were dropping some and I love the architecture of Historic Frederick, so of course I ended my evening with a few photographs.
Sunday, the artists from Artomatic got together one last time to celebrate a grand event. At the moment it looks like we will do a repeat performance in 2015. As the day came to a close, we took the art of the walls and called it a done deal! Till the next show, till tomorrow!
