A Rising Tide

Art on Groton Bank is set for Saturday, and it's going to be an excellent day and an excellent show, I do believe.

This is a small show - artists, there are still slots available, if you're up for it - and it is a good show. Audrey Heard and friends dreamed it up, gave it its French flavor, and shaped it to echo the spots in Paris where artists lean their works up against fences, paint and, in Audrey's words "talk the talk of art."

This year is the first year that Audrey has not been involved with the show, and while that leaves folks with twinges of tristesse, it's probably a wise move for her. She wanted time and space to paint. Chris Rose, curator of the Gallery at Lighthouse, has picked up the reins. Several members of the original crew are working on this year's show, adding their expertise and institutional memory to the mix.

So, while this is a small show, it's a fun show, a great way to support the Bill Memorial Library, and an excellent place to see and show and buy and sell ... and talk the talk of art.

The show is set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. It is in Groton City, near the Monument, on the grounds of the Bill Library, 240 Monument St. 

Any artist who is interested in participating may contact me at, or 860-442-0246, or contact Chris Rose, at or 860-705-3954.

And if you're looking for a nice way to spend an hour or two, support the community, and see some nice work, come on by. I am hoping I will be set up in a lovely shady spot!

As always, thank you for your support, and for walking with me on this journey.

Jacobson Arts is in Gales Ferry, CT
