Wine and Roses

 The month of May has wings, and not just those of birds and bees!  

We returned from inspirational travels to Brighton, London, Paris, Bois-le-Roi, and Giverny in mid-May to a kinetic schedule of all things art:  posters, proofs, printing, giclées, framing, museum shows, and more. It will be a while before we sit down with our source material and work on new pieces that reflect that amazing tour!

May also brought the final production of the poster you see here, “Wine and Roses.” This past winter, we were contacted by a wonderful couple from Virginia who have worked all sorts of magic. For those of you who travel far and wide for polo matches, the 6th Annual Polo Classic is a benefit for the National Sporting Library & Museum (NSLM) in Middleburg, Virginia (http://www.nationalsporting.org/nslm). 

The NSLM is hosting an exhibition of my work, "To the Finish: The Art and Process of Greg Montgomery,” from July 29 through November 27, 2016. We will be in Middleburg to deliver the exhibition and have a reception at Greenhill Winery & Vineyards (http://greenhillvineyards.com/) in the heart of Virginia horse country on July 16, for the opening reception and artwork presentation at the museum on July 28 and 29, and at Great Meadow in Middleburg for the Polo Classic on September 11 (http://www.greatmeadow.org/). If you happen to find yourself nearby or know someone who might enjoy the artwork on display there, please send this information along.

If you missed my 30th retrospective at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame (https://www.racingmuseum.org/) in Saratoga Springs last year, that show of my posters will be on display this summer at the Irish American Heritage Museum (https://irish-us.org/).

And we certainly hope to see you at one of my signings, appearances, or just around town this summer. The schedule is in my previous post and will accompany the blog about my Travers poster — release date, June 15 or sooner. 

Lots going on! Hope you have time for relaxing this summer. All the best!
