Friends of Pam and David

To all of you that followed this event, here is the update...

Comments from Carol Brightman Johnson, posted on her blog:

Thank you to all the artists and collectors who made the Friends of Pam and David a great success. Your generosity and good wishes did a lot! The show raised approximately $4,000. We don't have a final accounting yet, but that was pretty amazing, especially on short notice.

There were over 120 works of art at the Vanilla Bean, after the early bird sale, where the walls normally display from 30 to 50 pieces. What a testament to how well-liked and respected Pam and David are. The sheer number of artists who cared enough to donate something moved them deeply. Pam and David were surprised to find that so many of us think about them, and will continue to keep them in our minds and prayers. In some ways, the moral support is more important than money."


Friends of Pam & David / November 26 through December 1

I have already written about this event, but I wanted to include some new links for you to check out the art these talented artists have donated for the event.
It is a great opportunity for you to acquire good quality art at a very low price and at the same time you'll be helping out with the medical expenses of these very special people... Thanks!

Interactive Acrylics Workshop

About a week ago, the CT Society of Portrait Artists organized a workshop at the Darien Arts Center. For this, the fine artist Joan Polzin, representing The Chroma paint company supplied interactive acrylic paints for us to try, or I should say, "to play with", because we had so much fun trying this new the pictures taken by Jeanine C. Jackson:

Joan Polzin
These new acrylics are just amazing! They remain open for a longer time than regular acrylcs and can be kept workable by re wetting of dried paints. Joan Polzin, who has painted portraits with these paints in the past showed us the products and demonstrated how to use them. After her demonstration we all tried our hands on the product and loved it!

So here are two pictures showing the progress during the workshop of my little painting, even though is not yet finished. But I thought you might wanted to see what I did that day with these new interactive acrylics:

I know what you're thinking! Everyone working on portraits and I made a frog...well, this is my portrait of a frog!!! I hope you enjoy it!
The pictures of my painting were taken by Joan Polzin
The good thing about this acrylics is that you can save the left over paint in the refrigerator, so I did. About a week later, this past Friday, I made a little 6" x 8" Winter Scene on canvas using them. They were like new...perfect!

Winter Scene

I donated this painting to be sold for $100.00 to raise money to help my friends and artists, Pam and Dave Lussier. Pam has a very difficult form of cancer and is currently going through chemotherapy to get herself healthy enough to receive a kidney transplant and their insurance does not cover all the expenses...

Here is the information about this fundraiser:

hi there!

It's been a while since I last posted something in here, so today I decided to put it up to date. Here is a summary..

After my last post I was very busy getting ready to participate in Open Studios in New Haven...this happened the first weekend in October. Sorry I couldn't tell you before... It went well. I met many interesting people
and wonderful artists, one of them is Sikiu Perez (check her blog at She happened to be right next to me, along with other three artists, one photographer and two incredible painters. In the whole building we were 15 artists in total. Overall it was a great experience and best of all we've got to enjoy this fabulous view for the whole weekend:

Just, breath taking!!!

In conjunction with Open Studios, Artspace, which is the gallery that organizes the event, had a juried process for the exhibition that has been at their location ever since the Kick-off of Open Studios and will be on display until December the 13th and it's called "CONNcentric". I'm telling you this because my sculpture "Tucky" was accepted there!! Here is a pic...

isn't he cute?!

is located at:

50 Orange Street
New Haven, CT 06510
Phone: (203) 772-2709

Gallery Hours:
* Tuesday-Thursday 12-6pm

* Sunday-Monday CLOSED

The week after Open Studios I took course 3 of the Gardening Study School sponsored by the Federated Garden Clubs of CT. It's a three day course and ends up with an exam... I haven't told you this but I love to garden that's why I take this kind of courses. And as you can see my love for nature is represented in many of my works.

To end up the three weeks of strenuous work
, between my art work, my plants and of course, my three children I ended up sick!!! oh yes, the allergy season!!! and this season has been the worst!! Don't you think?

It's too late now and I think I better go to sleep. I'll continue tomorrow, after I deliver some artwork to a gallery in Hartford...let you know later...bye!



I'm so happy my sculpture "Lady Environmentalist" has been accepted into this nationally acclaimed exhibition & sale.

In this exhibit you can enjoy the works by Lyme Art Association Artists and selected invited Masters of Landscape Painting and sculpture around the United States. The show is sponsored by Essex Savings Bank & Financial Services and was juried by Elected Artists Robert Duffy and Michael Graves.

At The Housatonic Museum in Bridgeport, CT

Today, as part of the events related to the exhibition of "Why Not?!" (on view now at the Burt Chernow Gallery in the Housatonic Museum of Art) I went with two of my friends, Sheila Kaczmarek and Marjorie Lutz to the

"Lunch and Learn" guided tour of the museum collection

There, Ann Chernow talked about women artists in the permanent collection, such as her own Time After Time. She also talked about her friends, the visionary Jeanne Claude and her partner Christo. Ann’s late husband, Burt, founder of HMA, explains in his book on the couple how the two together invented a whole new approach to art, as seen in Running Fence. So Ann talked a little bit about this book and some personal experience with the couple.

After the talk, we took a Guided Tour of Housatonic collection with emphasis on women artists, such as Elaine de Kooning’s Family, Lee Bontecou, Alice Baber, Renee Schumacher, Sylvia Sleigh, Doris Cesar, Jane Freilicher and Jane Peterson. Some in the collection are involved in WCA-CT: June Ahrens, Camille Eskell, Alberta Cifolelli, and Susan Sharp. Suzanne Benton’s monoprint, Votes for Women, is very timely.

We had a great time and enjoyed the collection very much. I really recommend people to come to the Museum and take a look at their collection, and while there don't miss out the exhibition of Why Not!? until Friday, October 24th, 2008
, in the Burt Chernow Galleries.

Deacon Graves House Outdoor Exhibition in Madison, CT

I'm exhausted! Today I and a group of painters from the Madison Art Society came to the Deacon Graves House in Madison, CT to showcase our work all around the house’s lawn and barn. We were there all day from 10 am to 4 pm, plus the time it took for us to set up before ten and clean up afterwards. But it was all well worth.

We had a nice sunny day with a pleasant breeze. Many visitors came to see our work, the nicely maintained gardens in the property and the house, which was open for guided tours with open hearth cooking happening in the Tavern room. We couldn’t ask for more! We all felt transported in time...

A little history about the Deacon Greaves house:

"The Deacon John Grave Foundation was incorporated in 1983 to save the Deacon John Grave House from destruction. Since that time the foundation has worked tirelessly to restore and preserve this unique structure.

The Deacon John Grave House is special because its history is the story of seven generations of one Madison family, how they lived and died, their joys and sorrows and their continual struggle to make ends meet in a constantly changing society.

Seven generations of farmers, haulers, soldiers, innkeepers, shoemakers, dressmakers and weavers have tread on the time worn floorboards of the house. Seven generations kept amazingly meticulous entries in account books that tell their story, from early colonial beginnings to the twentieth century". (Taken from their website at:

"CORINA.-" an exhibition of sculptures by Corina S. Alvarezdelugo, presented by the Society of Connecticut Sculptors.

All summer long, through Labor Day weekend, you have the chance to see some of my sculptures all together in one show at the Interlaken Inn; in Lakeville, CT. Don’t miss it!!

The place is great with tons of activities to do and beautiful scenery, plus you get to see ten (10) of my sculptures at once!!!

The show is called "CORINA.-" and is presented by the Society of Connecticut Sculptors.
