August Thoughts

by Jim Puzinas on August 31, 2010

The last two weeks of August are usually quiet for many businesses, including the fine art business. Many people are trying to catch the final vestiges of summer or preparing their children for the upcoming school year.

If this were most years, I’d be able to indulge in a little down time as well. But this is not a normal summer for us this year. We have been busying ourselves with all the necessary prep that goes into our major fall art shows beginning with the prestigious USArtists American Art Show the first weekend of October and the Boston International Fine Art Show in November. Publicity photos, ad space, booth construction plans and hotel reservations all were due over this past month.

Adding more excitement to the mix is the fact that Blue Heron Fine Art will be reintroducing the modernist works of New York City artist Edith Branson. Her work has not been seen publicly since 1940.

We are pleased that the family has entrusted our gallery with such an important task. Edith Branson will be next month’s featured artist and will be the subject of our next fine art blog, coinciding with the unveiling of four or five paintings representative of her ouevre at the USArtists Show running September 30 through October 3rd at the Pennsylvania Aademy of the Fine Arts Hamilton Building in downtown Philadelphia.

Hope to see you there and if you can’t make it, plan to stay connected by reading next month’s fine art blog.
