April Glaggett: Gangster of Art

Leave a comment

What happens when two art school colleagues unite in one studio space?

Love.

We visited April’s beautiful new studio in New Hampshire on August 16th.  Here is some of what we saw.

 

 

These new works look kinda familiar.  Oh boy oh boy!

Can’t wait to see these pieces completed.

Just look at this gorgeous light.

April Claggett: Art in Dublin (NH that is)

Leave a comment

April Claggett‘s art is well represented here at apothecaryshed, both on our walls and as a set of artifacts for the Bitter Liberals. April has been pouring more energy into her art now that both of her boys are either in college or through college. Empty nest or open sky, you decide!

April is planning to get an MFA in painting soon (starting this Fall) and we’re interested to see how her painting evolves. A recent show at the Dublin, NH Community center makes a great “before” study.

Lots of paintings in the “before” category

Just finished working on the new Where’s Aubrey CD in the studio (hours of engineering). Next step is Mastering, then we will have a complete CD. April Claggett is doing an original painting for the cover (donate to her kickstarter). Can’t wait to see that!

April Blossoms in May

Leave a comment

Three years ago I stole some miniature irises from April in NH. Flew them down in my suitcase and planted them the next day. They have finally come into their own.

Orgies, Beavers, and the Difference 500 Miles Makes

In NH this weekend, we went to see the newt orgy. Apparently it had already ended by the time we arrived. Only a few newt stragglers remained.

Here’s what it looks like in NH in early April.

At least there were beavers to be seen. Or signs of beavers anyway.

Or was it the field ecologist?

At least we used all of our gear. Here is how a field ecologist rolls in NH. Umbrella, snowshoes, and an ipad.

Meanwhile back at the apothecary shed, things look distinctly more springlike.
