Solo Art Exhibition at Picasso's Coffee House February 01, 2018

 

Solo Art Exhibition for Jennifer Ahern


Hello everyone!  I hope that you are all off to a wonderful start to 2018!  My new year has been quite busy thus far, as I have been preparing for a solo art exhibition of my work.  My art studio for the past few weeks has been a mess of frames, mats, and wires while I have been diligently framing paintings for the show!  With the exhibition now up and running (and with the chaos of preparing for the event behind me!), I wanted to take a moment to share the details of the show with you all.  I am happy to share that a selection of my artwork will be on display and for sale at Picasso’s Coffee House in St. Charles, Missouri between February 1st - March 31st.  I am very excited about how this show has come together, and I hope that you can stop by to see the exhibition if you are in the area! 
 
An opening reception for this exhibition will also take place at Picasso’s Coffee House on Saturday, February 3rd.  The reception will be held between 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., and it will be followed by live music from local musician Warren Wagner.  Please feel free to stop by the reception and say hello to yours truly if you can!
 
Exhibition and reception location:
 
Picasso’s Coffee House
101 North Main Street
St. Charles, Missouri 63301
 
As always, thank you for your wonderful support of my artwork!  I sincerely appreciate it!

Moving to St. Louis! March 24, 2017


Moving to St. Louis

I am excited to share that my husband, my sweet pup, and I are moving to St. Louis, Missouri at the end of the month!  It is bittersweet to be moving, as we have really come to enjoy living in Austin, Texas.  However, this move affords us a wonderful opportunity to be closer to family and friends, and for that we are incredibly grateful.  With all of the “moving” parts going on between moving out, moving into a new home, and setting up a new art studio, these next few weeks are going to be quite busy!  As a result, any orders placed on my website between March 27th - April 16th will be packaged and shipped on April 17th (or sooner if I can!).  Thanks for your wonderful support, and please be sure to stay tuned for a sale once I have settled into my new studio!

P.S.- This might sound “corny,” but I am really looking forward to seeing the Midwestern scenery again, cornfields and all!  I really must be a Midwestern gal at heart!

New Website & Blog March 07, 2015

Hi there!  I've been hard at work lately creating a new website that I'm pretty excited about.  I made some design changes so that my website is (hopefully) more user-friendly for all of you now!  I also made some big behind the scene changes so that the business side of things work more smoothly for me.  I hope that you have a chance to peek around my site and that you like the new look and feel to my website!

 And now that I've finished putting together the nuts and bolts of the new site, I am finally back to painting!  It had been weeks since I had last picked up a paintbrush, so it felt so good to get back to actually painting in my studio!  Here is what I'm working on now: a little, sleepy fox.
