2012 looks to be a busy year!  I will be opening a studio, short term, in the Town of Floyd at the Jacksonville Center for the Arts....I am hoping to have it open for June, July, and August. I will continue to welcome patrons into my larger, home studio on Poor Farm Rd., but the additional location will give more visibility to my work, capturing visitors to the town.  

I will be participating in the 2nd Annual Floyd Artisan Trail Tour, to take place June 22-25.  I will be in the "town" studio on Friday, the 22nd, and in my home studio the remainder of the Open House weekend. Times to be announced later. The week leading up to the Trail Tour, I will take time off for a painting week at Nimrod Hall in Bath Co, VA, so my studio will be full of "fresh off the easel" pieces.  

The Fall will bring two shows to my calendar.....Art on the Lawn on September 9th, in Pearisburg, VA (in Giles Co), and Art on the Parkway on Oct 13-14, at Mountain Meadows Farms in Meadows of Dan, VA.

I will be updating my blog with each of my painting outings, so be sure to check for updates. I can also be found on Facebook under "Paintings by Joli Ayn Wood."  My Facebook page will have the most "up to the minute" information on new works and shows, so be sure to head out there and "like" my page!

Thanks to everyone for all their support during my recent show! I appreciate the help and guidance of my friends, family, and my art community of Floyd!

My solo show at the Jacksonville Center for the Arts in Floyd has come down, but here are a few trailing shots....I ended up selling 4 paintings and a photo! Let me know if you see something that interests you!

 A good artist friend of mine, Gretchen St.Lawrence....she is a marvelous pastel painter!

"Study, Bean Tree" found a new home at the second artist's reception in March. I always love when one of my "babies" finds a new owner!
