the first of two Student Art Shows planned in 2019
Every show sponsored by Pine Shores Art has a flyer of eligibility instructions that also includes hanging requirements. When framing your paintings for an exhibit, please adhere to the hanging requirements that accompany the show's flyer. Your artwork will be turned away if not framed properly.

Here are some photos from St. Mary’s Show on August 24th. This was their 8th annual show and is held yearly as a fundraiser for the church and an opportunity for artists to show and sell their works in a bright, clean, air conditioned inside venue in Stafford.
Of the 34 spaces available (all sold out well in advance), Pine Shores artists occupied two-thirds of them. A steady stream of visitors attended the show this year and also had a chance to eat lunch prepared by church volunteers manning the kitchen. The church received a small commission on all art sales. Always an enjoyable day mingling with fellow artists and prospective purchasers !
Last August at St. Mary's...
In the Spring classes, Mary Walker-Baptiste taught composition in large cityscapes, and in small works. The students were also inspired by Audobon’s birds.

Painted Poetry combined efforts by 16 artists and 16 poets to produce
a unique experience at the Surf City Branch of the Ocean County Library
Each artist submitted an original artwork that is interpreted by a poet in the form of an original poem. Each poet also submits an original poem that the paired artist interprets in an original painting. This was the 6th Painted Poetry exhibit and all 32 poems and paired paintings were on display in the Library last month.
A reception for meeting artists and poets, as well as readings by the poets, was held on August 14.
A commemorative paperback book containing all art and poetry was available to purchase at the reception. The exhibit was coordinated this year by Susan Cummings and Carol Freas and a majority of the artists are members of Pine Shores. Show was hung by Chuck Person (no photo), Carol, Irene Bausmith and Paul Hartelius. See more...

Save the Date for Plein Air in Pine Air!
Our upcoming location will be at
Cedar Bonnet Island Environmental Trail
off of Route 72. There are many beautiful spots to paint along this trail.
Arrival time is November 26th at 9:30 at Cedar Bonnet Island Environmental Trail. There is parking right over the bridge on Route 72 before Long Beach Island.
Any art medium and style is welcome! We encourage photography, poetry, painting, writing, sketching etc.,
Once we meet we will then spread out to any areas of interest. You do not have to stay the full 3 hours.
Keep in mind that this is an eco-minded Plein Air group, anything you bring in must be brought back with you. No disposing of solvents or paint water on the premises. Bring containers, and plastic bags to store paint waste and dispose of them properly at home.
Thank you for those who attempted to brave the super gusty day we had at Double Trouble Park. It ended up being a beautiful day but windy! We had a few artists arrive with their sketchbooks and cameras since painting would have been difficult.
