Princeton Hey Day

Hey How about at Hey Day!? Ah a Country Fair in Princeton MA on Sat. Oct. 2. My attached painting of "Milkyway and Flo" is among my contributions to the exhibit. The Hey Day at Princeton is unlike any other since "fine art" and "fine crafts" are in the mix. Artists have a harvest too of the many works we have done this summer, there will be 15 artists demonstrating and an exhibit of 15 other artists. The fair is sponsored by the princeton Art society and Wachusett Meadow. Horse drawn carriages and sleighs will lead you in and to greet you are warm and friendly smiles, the usual country fare will be available as at other fairs, personally I have never been to the Hey day so my curiousity is peaked just as sure as yours is, With all the Autumn fairs from town to town, hope you will put this one on your list.

To find the Hey Day on Sat. Oct. 2 go to Princeton center around the common and head towards Hubbardston on Rt. 62, it is at Wachusett Meadow a right turn about a half mile down. I bet there will be signs.

Come visit my cows "Milkyway and Flo" and see "Caramel and Cookie" too, I will also be exhibiting a selelction of autumn sunsets and harvests of land and sea. I am excited to see what the other artists will have!

"In the Shade of My Farm House" by Len Haug
Congratulations to Len Haug for continued success with his beautiful works!

The following was submitted by Len...

This has been a good year and month for me. In addition to acceptance at the Cahoon Museum of American Art in Cotuit, I have within the last week been notified that the:

The Falmouth Artist Guild at the Falmouth Art Center has juried in my work titled "In the Shade of My Farm House" and it has, out of 74 pieces selected, been awarded "Best in Show." The show runs from Sep 19th to Oct 10th.

Lois Griffel, the internationally known pastel artist and juror for this show, supported her decision with the following comments " It would have been easy to be seduced by the sheer technicality of this piece. I gave it a great deal of study and saw that beyond the fact that it is made from such small pieces of paper, it was exceptionally realized as a painting. It is a difficult and unusual composition. The light effect is beautiful, especially in the dappled light on the house. The detail in this work is stunning. I cannot help but be fascinated by this work of art."

The Concord Art Association, now celebrating its 89th anniversary has juried in my work titled "Our Daily Thanksgiving" into the 11th Annual Frances N. Roddy Open Competition. With over 522 entries my collage was one of only 95 pieces to be exhibited. The show runs from Sep 18th to Oct 17th.
