Paul Strisik Show at Rockport Art Association, October 2014

A favorite artist's works are on display now until November 16th at the Rockport Art Association. There are 120 paintings on display of his and 104 paintings he and Nancy collected from other artists.  Today, Ron Straka did a gallery walk highlighting many works of Strisik's and discussing some technical points as well as giving many personal anecdotes from having been a friend as well as a painting mate of Paul's.
It was a warm autumn day and the 50-mile drive to the quaint village of Rockport was gorgeous here in New England with the leaves about 1/2 way towards their peak.  I was glad that another painting buddy, Ann Shadrake, could come along to enjoy the show.  I saw a few people there I hadn't seen in a while, and in the 2 1/2 hours I was there, I didn't get to see everything well enough so I'll have to go again before it closes.  Next week on the 22nd there is another gallery walk with David P. Curtis, so that will be a good time to see it again.  You can see many of the works by clicking here.
