Once in a while opportunity comes knocking at my door, instead of my having to seek it out. I am so grateful that the owner of Gallery Z at 167 Market Street in Lowell, Massachusetts, Patty DiStefano, discovered my Etsy shop and reached out to me to join her gallery's upcoming month-long "Assemblage" show. Patty is an assemblage artist in her own right. Here is an example of her work:
Patty opened this wonderful gallery in 2015. Aside from running month-long themed gallery exhibits, it also serves as a gift shop, artist cooperative, café and coffeehouse and runs theatrical events such as dinner theater and musical events such as open-mic nights. It is in the center of the historic district in Lowell, amongst other galleries and restaurants.
The "Assemblage" show will feature 6 artists altogether and will run from March 28- April 28, 2019. The opening reception, at which I and other artists' will be present and appetizers will be served, is on Saturday April 13 from 4-6PM. One can come to enjoy the opening celebration and then have dinner in the restaurant and stay for open-mic night starting at 7:30PM! Here is the link to the gallery website:
Below are the 8 pieces of mine that Patty chose for the "Assemblage" show:
Gallery Z also has a wonderful gift shop area and these four dogs were chosen to be for sale in that section. They are also for sale in my Etsy shop (if interested, click on the photo and it will direct you there where you may read more about the piece, see more photos, and purchase it):
If you live locally, I hope you will be able to check out the "Assemblage" exhibit and most importantly attend the opening reception and say "hi" to me! As always, thank you for reading my blog.

Ever since, I have been wanting to go to Gallery Z just to see all these stuff. I am pretty sure that it would be a great experience for me to get there since I a an art and antique lover all at the same time. I heard that it closed last year, but I am glad to know that it opened once again! I cannot go right now because I am sure that we wouldn't be allowed to go out by our parents because there is a pandemic that's going on. Let us pray that this will end soon so that all of us could go back to normal.

I am 61 years old, a wife of 30 years, a mother of a wonderful and independent 23-year-old daughter, a clinical psychologist who treats adults in private practice, and last, but definitely not least, an artist. Whew! That was a mouth full. My passion is creating one-of-a-kind whimsical sculptural animals, dolls, and cake toppers (with a little multi-media collage thrown in for good measure). I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoy making them!
