"Line by Line - Three Women Working in Colored Pencil": September 1 - 29, 2009

Throughout the month of September, "Line by Line: Three Women Working in Colored Pencil", will be on display at the Hudson Gallery in Sylvania, Ohio. The artist's reception will be held on Saturday, September 12, 2009, from 5 - 7 p.m.

The show features approximately thirty colored pencil works by Michigan artists Bonnie Auten, Dianna Wallace Soisson, and myself. It is a pleasure for me to have the opportunity to exhibit with two such gifted artists. From Bonnie's engaging and vibrant still lifes, to Dianna's lovely florals and water themes, to my western images -- this display provides a great deal of diversity, and has something for everyone.

The Hudson Gallery itself is located in the historic section of downtown Sylvania. It specializes in custom and archival framing, and is recognized as one of the area's top venues for original artwork. Owned by Scott and Barbara Hudson, the gallery is also a representative for Labino Glass and features contemporary art by various artists..............And an additional note regarding Scott and Barbara must be made here: one would be hard-pressed to find two lovelier and more genuine people. They are an absolute pleasure to work and talk with.

We hope to see you at the reception!

  1. Great write-up Lynda. The show sounds (and looks, from the one photo) wonderful. I wish I could see it and will be at the opening in spirit.

    How did they get your frameds pieces above so well matched? Did they reframe everything?

  2. Thanks, but all of our works are academically framed, so mattes are white or off-white, and the frames are black or dark-brown....... I wish you could be there too, and will get pictures!

  3. Three fabulous cp artists - this must be an amazing show! I am so delighted for you Lynda. I wish I could see it in person. I look forward to seeing pics. Have a terrific time at the reception and may the exhibition be a huge success!!!

  4. Thanks so much Teresa. To our knowledge there has not been a colored pencil show in the Toledo area, and there seems to be alot of interest in this show already. For my part, I am simply grateful to have this opportunity......its a first for me.
