Upcoming exhibit: Grimshaw Gudewicz Gallery

I am pleased to announce that I will be featured in a three person exhibit at the Grimshaw Gudewicz Gallery at Bristol Community College. Nancy Hayes and Allison Paschke are the other two super interesting artists who will be sharing the space with me. The exhibition is curated by the gallery director, Kathleen Hancock. I am very excited to be showing and it looks to be a very interesting grouping of work! Please join me at the opening reception on Thursday, Jan. 22 from 6 - 8  pm.

Passing Strange - Upcoming exhibit in Virginia this January

I am pleased to announce a solo exhibit entitled Passing Strange, at the Hunt Gallery, Mary Baldwin College in Staunton, Virginia, January 12 through 30, 2015.

The exhibition, featuring new work on paper and board, began with a simple action of spilling paint.

In my recent series, I begin each piece by pouring and pooling paint onto thin plastic, allowing the colors to disperse and blend naturally. When the puddles dry, I cut out the most interesting shapes. These forms become central to my work and I respond to them with additional painting and collage. A narrative is suggested but not pinned down. 










What I did in Greece between classes...

This year I had a little time for some fun... I was inspired by some dried artichokes that the goat farmer shared with our group. Quickly done gestural and contour studies of the 'choke, each one done in less than 20 minutes. Acrylic on paper, 12" x 14".





And an image-collection trip in an old village on Skopelos...




















Art, Intuitively, in Greece, September 2014

For the second time in as many years, I led an art workshop on the magical island of Skopelos, Greece, in the Aegean Sea. My good friends Tom and Isabel Dempsey, directors of Island Center for the Arts, sponsor teachers each year to lead classes.
Again, I had a stupendous group of women as my students. I am awed by their bravery and honored to have been part of their creative journey. Each came with her own reasons for being in Skopelos. I watched as the group bonded, laughed, cried, and created together. And what amazing work was made!
