March Art Show Announced

I'm excited to announce that I'll be exhibiting at Art First Gallery with fellow Co-Op artist Ana Rendich. "Soul Providers" will run for the month of March with the Artists' Reception on Friday March 5 from 6-9pm.

Right now, I'm in the thick of it - working hard to make this a really rich and interesting show. We hope to see you there... -G

Arts in Support of Haiti

Scarlett has designed 20 limited edition votives to help raise funds for Habitat for Humanity in Haiti. She has titled the piece “Port-au-Prince Cathedral”. The 100 year-old cathedral in Haiti is also known as the “Cathedral of our Lady of Assumption” and has been destroyed in January's earthquake.

The votive is 5” in diameter and its design is inspired by elements such as the rose window and the tower from the cathedral. Each ceramic piece will be signed and numbered and is $50.00 each. 100% of the proceeds is being donated to
Habitat for Humanity and will go to Haiti's relief effort.

If you are in Fredericksburg you can come by the PONSHOP at LibertyTown Arts Workshop and leave your donation which will reserve your votive. You may also mail us a check, made out to scarlettwares, for $50.00 to:

LibertyTown Arts, Attn: PONSHOP, 916 Liberty Street, Fredericksburg, VA 22401

(Please add $10.00 if you would like your piece mailed to you anywhere in the USA.)

Scarlett is making these ceramic pieces currently,so please allow 6-8 weeks to complete this series. Each piece will be glazed in a Satin White Glaze. We will let everyone know as soon as they are finished and you can come by the PONSHOP to pick them up or we will be more than happy to mail them to your doorstep.

For more information please contact Scarlett at

Thank you and our hearts go out to the people of Haiti.

"I Believe in Mr. Grieves"

"Neptune's Daughter", mixed media on wood, 18"x14.5", SOLD

February, 2010. Scarlett heard this report that our music tastes are most acute and malleable up until we're 20 years old. If that's the case, then I'll be listening to the Pixies when I'm eighty years old. Th above painting was inspired by a Pixies song - the lyrics go: "...what's that floating in the water oh neptune's only daughter i believe in mr. grieves"

"Neptune's Daughter" is on exhibit this month at Art First Gallery (824 Caroline Street, Fredericksburg, VA) as part of the themed "Portraits" show. Check out this all member exhibit. Opening Reception is Friday, February 5, from 6-9pm.

Gallery Hours: 11-7pm Mon-Thurs, 11-9pm Fri-Sat, 12-7pm Sunday
