This is my piece for the Icons and Altars exhibit at the New Art Center in Newton, Ma.
It is silkscreen and acrylic paint on wood panel, 20" x 16".
This is my 10th year participating in Icons and Altars, a fundraiser for the New Art Center. It is always fun to see the images created using this topic as a theme. All the artists interpret it in different ways according to their unique style and vision. Since I have been working with the glyphs for the past three years, it made sense for me to continue in this vein... so the "iconography" is the same as in my other work.
I like the challenge of coming up with a new small work for this show, and it always provides me an opportunity to try things out (in this case, I used my new silkscreen imagery) on the cradled masonite boards that are so nice to work on.
IIf you are in the Boston area, you might want to go to this show and purchase a ticket for $250 that allows you to choose your favorite piece. At the end of the show, tickets will be drawn, and you are likely to get at least one of your top choices. It's fun, and it helps the New Art Center.
