Halls of Art XIII

Irony  watercolors by Meera Rao 

I am very pleased that my painting 'Irony'  (on full sheet of Arches watercolor paper) is hanging in the Halls of Art XIII  show at the Hampton  Roads Convention Center. The description on their web site says: Halls of Art, a display throughout the Hampton Roads Convention Center, celebrates the talent of Coastal Virginia artists.  Each work was chosen by members of the Hampton Public Arts Steering Committee, a group of Hampton citizens from various professional backgrounds, including the business community, Hampton Arts Commission board members, and residents, among others..  The show will run till end of Oct. I missed the show opening  but I went in last week and enjoyed it very much. 

I wrote about Irony in an earlier post and if curious please feel free to check it there.

Sharing the Joy

My India Art Sketch Journals at the Hampton Roads Artists Groups Juried Exhibition.

I am excited to be part of a wonderful and unique art show during the month of May at Hampton's Charles Taylor Arts Center!  As the Hampton Arts Magazine Diversions explains : "This invitational group exhibition features artworks selected and submitted by sixteen diverse artists' groups based in Hampton Roads.  These groups pre-selected entries from their member artists, which were then juried into the final exhibition. The exhibition presents both two and three dimensional artworks in a wide range of media, style, and content.  ......The resulting combination of talent, media and subject matter entered by our participating artist groups provides a spectacular exhibition experience."   And the exhibition is a beautifully curated feast for the senses and I feel humbled to be a part of it. 

FYI : The show runs May 3-June 1 2014 - a delightful way to spend an hour or two enjoying art :)

Secrets of my Soul

My Paintings at Poquoson Public Library May 2014

"Art is a microscope which the artist fixes on the secrets of his soul, and shows to people these secrets which are common to all."
~Leo Tolstoy~

I am grateful once again for the chance to have my paintings displayed at the Poquoson Public Library for the month of May as the 'Artist of the Month.'  It is a very nourishing, humbling and exciting time for me. If you are in this neck of the woods, please do stop by the library!
