Artists market online; mother and son art show

• Find the money: Working artists can learn how to dig up grants and find other opportunities from the state of New Hampshire in the state’s Council on the Arts’ new series of entrepreneurial workshops. Learn about grants and services for professional artists focusing on public art, fellowships and artist entrepreneurial grants and workshops Tuesday, Feb. 27, from 3 to 5 p.m. Artists can also give Council staff feedback. The snow date is Feb. 28. This is free, but register by calling 271-2789 or e-mailing Judy.L.Rigmont@dcr.nh.gov. The State Art Council office is at 2½ Beacon St., Concord. Micro-Credit ArtWorks NH joins to offer “Approaching a Gallery and Patron Relationships” March 27, as well as “Pricing: For What It’s Worth” April 17. The Arts Council finishes the series May 23 with a second round of “I Think I Need a Web Site, But Where Do I Begin?”

• Who needs a storefront? Amethyst Wyldfyre, having closed her Nashua gallery on East Pearl Street (called Amethyst Wyldfyre) has launched awgallerydirect.com. The Web gallery exhibits her latest paintings, photography and jewelry, but she called the launch “bittersweet.” Of her new works, she said, “These new channeled paintings of the Archangels, Ascended Masters, Ascended Mothers and the Faerie Realm are truly powerful, quite unique and beautiful. Called Vibrational Power Paintings, each piece has been vibrationally activated and charged with Usui, Ascension, Lightarian Reiki and Shambhala through laying on of hands. Created in sacred space and energized by the breath, the paintings have all been toned and tuned with Crystal Singing Bowls, assigned a resonant number and are embedded with a variety of rough or tumbled crystals and minerals to hold the vibrational intention.” Wyldfyre is also featured at Gallery One in downtown Nashua through February.

For other artists, there’s a new e-gallery called FineArtAmerica.com which displays content relevant to visitor geographic location, and allows artists and galleries to update their own offerings (theoretically easier than designing and hosting a Web site). It’s free to use, but there’s a limit on how many new works and press releases artists can upload per month to encourage users to delete old content.

• Mother and son: East Colony Fine Art of Manchester artist Jeanne Lachance has interpreted, through oil paintings, the digital photographs of her son, Mark Hudon of Oregon. Hudon’s semi-abstract images of western landscape focus on geological formations, color and vast spaces while Lachance also concentrates on form and color. The photos and paintings will be hung at the McInich Gallery from Feb. 24 through March 22. Stop by the opening reception for “Interpretations: Jeanne Lachance and Mark Hudon” Friday, Feb. 23, from 7 to 8 p.m. The gallery is at Southern New Hampshire University, 2500 N. River Road, Manchester, 629-4622.
