OK, this is long over due. I have to pimp out my friends and favorite folk band, Gypsy Red. John and Cherie Sardella of Parish, NY play what could be described as their own brand of progressive folk music. They have over 80 original songs to their credit. The music is a spirtitual journey for the soul. John on 12 string guitar and Cherie's vocals are a great collaboration of love and good energy. We are happy to announce they will once again play ART IN THE SQUARE, Saturday September 27.

Their CD, "Comming Home" is avaiable at Abbott's Fine Art and Framing or on-line at

Mountain Mist

"Mountain Mist" a wonderful collection of Adirondack landscape paintings on view through July 31 at the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts, Blue Mountain Lake, NY. The exhibition is comprised of orginal watercolors and acrylics by Constantia, NY artist Jeanne Dupre.

Jeanne's paintings show case her love of the outdoors and are scenes that she and husband Dick are intimately familiar with. They spend a lot of time hiking and kayaking in the Adirondack region. It is on these outings, that Jeanne gathers inspiration and photographic references for her paintings.

Debe and I have done much of her framing for well over twenty years and have watched her career take off. This is a fabulous show for her and I highly recommend stopping by the art center if you are up that way!

Bravo Jeanne!

PS. Jeanne's paintings, prints and note cards are also available through

JUST IN - Jeanne won the POPULAR VOTE from attendees and patrons at the Adirondack Theme Show, Arts Center, Old Forge. Congrats!
