Art Show at Lotus Kitchen, February 26, 2016

A friend of mine who manages a local cafe (Lotus Cafe/Kitchen) located on the island in Solomons, MD asked if I would be interested in doing an art show displaying some the things I’ve painted at the cafe.  I was excited that she asked me and thought it sounded like a fun idea and a fairly casual way of doing my first art show.  So I agreed!  I hope that you can attend!  Following are some details including one of the painting & audio pairs that I’ll be presenting.

Description: I will be hanging some watercolor paintings in Lotus Cafe.  I am pairing audio clips with some of the paintings and you will be able to access them via the web.  So if you are interested in hearing the audio clips please bring a smartphone or computer and some headphones.

Below is an example of a painting and audio pairing.  I’m excited to share more of these at the show.  Please let me know what you think!

  1. Spencer, this is great! I was expecting the audio to be music, so the surprise of hearing your voice and learning about the painting was a bonus. The time spent listening will give your viewers time to enjoy the painting and vice versa. Bravo!

    1. Thank you for your comment Tracey! Yes, it will be interesting to see how the audio pairing thing works out. I think it would be helpful if the installment was longer to give people a chance to come back and listen. During the “show”, people may be too busy getting oriented, socializing, listening to the music. We’ll see. Also, the other audios are of sounds, and other people sharing stories. More variety than just me talking in all of them. Wish you could make it to the show!

  2. Hi Spencer! Lailah & I are visiting your site and enjoying your paintings. (And Annie Dillard!) She likes the weasel and “the blowing bubble one.” I wish I could’ve come to your show; I’m so glad to find you sharing your work here.
