Jozy Fine Art Newsletter September 2015
Lynn Shaler Reception and Talk
We had quite the festive crowd at Lynn’s reception. So many people who are interested in her work haven’t been able to find her since Wellfleet’s Jacob Fanning Gallery closed in 2006 . Now they’ve found her, and she had a wonderful time discussing her latest work.
Lynn followed the reception with a lively discussion on Sunday. We had about twenty-five art enthusiasts who listened to Lynn explain how and why she, and many other artists, number their limited edition works. We were fortunate to have both a unique artist’s proof and a production representation of her work to show to the attendees – it’s always more meaningful to see the results.
There were many questions that Lynn deftly answered; she’s been doing limited edition etchings for thirty-five years! People are amazed at the level of detail that goes into her work. She had illustrations of each printing of the copper plates that create her work while I held the finished etching that has been highlighted, matted, and framed. Truly, an informative and fascinating afternoon.
Iva Liebert’s Champagne Reception
So, “It was a dark and stormy night” is a cliché opening many novels. It wasn’t yet dark, but it was certainly a rainy night when Iva Liebert’s Reception opened. We were competing with the Pops in the Park performance and hoping a rain date would move everyone to the gallery.
Despite rain and competition, we had a huge crowd at the show. Everyone was impressed with Iva’s latest work while continuing to enjoy her small series that have remained so popular. The champagne flowed, Denya LeVine entranced us with her plaintive fiddle music, and the conversation never stopped. It was so gratifying to see Iva’s friends and collectors, some of whom had to make a concentrated effort to get here.
Congratulations to Iva and the many people who have added to their collections. Her large works were removed to her Northampton studio on August, 27th, but her small works remain in the gallery through October 11th.
OUR NEXT SHOW: Fine Art Photography from a European River Cruise
I have looked forward to my Labor Day weekend show all year, because I was the lucky tagalong on the river cruise that inspired the fine art photography of Lou Clark and L. Robert Jasper. Both will attend the show to visit with patrons and collectors and discuss their work from last year’s cruise on the Danube, Main, and Rhine. Join us for wine, cheese, and conversation Saturday, September 5th, 5-7pm.
Final Show of the Season
We’ll celebrate Cape Cod’s second season Columbus Day weekend with a very special reception featuring small works by all the fine artists represented by Jozy. New England photography, both small and large, will also be shown. This show offers a great opportunity to start holiday shopping early and enjoy refreshments on Saturday, October 10th. Note the expanded time from 11:00am until 7:00pm.

About the Gallery
I am a long time collector of art from both new artists and the well known. My vision for Jozy Fine Art is a gallery that will present work from artists long collected while providing a venue for new talent struggling for attention. I like themes, so we’ll use some of my favorites to feature oils and acrylics, aquatint etching, fine art photography, and handcrafted jewelry. The gallery space is open and comfortable – meant to welcome all visitors… Jozy
