Opening Reception for Ann Hayden & Maurice Spector

In October Ann Hayden and Maurice Spector will be featured. Both artists are inspired by life on the Eastern Shore of Virginia but not in the usual way. Their greatest fascination is with the sculptural quality of birds. How fortunate we are to have each new show bring exciting art work to our walls.

October Featured Artists – Ann Hayden & Maurice Spector

The perfect way to celebrate fall is to show work by two our favorite artists from the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Ann Hayden and Maurice Spector are kindred spirits when it comes to the subjects they paint. While their painting medium differs as do their painterly styles their subject matter is similar – an affinity for birds. You have to understand their aviary interests are not traditional. Ann’s interests focus on abstract takes on bird characteristics and behavior. Maurice represents birds – especially crows – as humorous characters both in paintings and sculpture. This is one of those shows where I chuckle as I hang because of the paintings and their humorous titles. Come and see for yourself at the opening reception on First Friday, October 7 from 5 until 8.
