Natura Morta

Reception! This Friday at the Lincoln Arts Project, Natura Morta, a two woman show featuring art jewelry by the marvelous Kelly Conroy and paintings by yours truly. There'll be drinks, nibbles, art, dead birds--really everything you could want in a Friday night out! But in all seriousness, the show came together beautifully: it's lovely, come see it.

The Creative Process

The Creative Process, the annual student and faculty exhibition at the New Art Center, opens today! Reception fun from 1-4 in Newton, Massachusetts--Sebbie will be there with his tortoise and turtle friends because they're cool like that, obviously.

Natura Morta

I'm delighted to share our two person show, Natura Morta, is up at the Lincoln Arts Project gallery space. A combination of painting (me) and fine art jewelry (Kelly Conroy), the show focuses around the cycles of nature through birds--it's hard to explain, but it's beautiful. I expect you just have to come see it. Opening reception is June 2nd 6-9pm, be there.

New York Bound

I'm delighted to share that "A Boy and His Chicken" will be in New York City for the 84th Annual Juried Exhibition of the Hudson Valley Art Association. It'll be the second time this year I've had work at Salmagundi Club on Fifth Avenue. Both the boy and his chicken are thrilled.

Art Muse Contest

I'm delighted and surprised to share that my painting Catharsis (previously titled, I Tried--but that seemed to lead to confusion and a lot of questions most of which were answered by the word "catharsis," so I swapped) won Art Muse's December contest in the category of Emerging Artist. The piece will also be included in a group exhibition at Jack Meier Gallery in Houston, Texas next month. I'm also finding this a teachable moment, because apparently, in my hurry to make a last minute entry, I misspelled catharsis (cathersis just doesn't have the same ring to it) on my entry, and that's just terribly embarrassing. Proof your entries, children, you'll thank yourself later.

Playing with light

I think I'm about done with this piece. It was an experiment of sorts, trying to push myself outside of my usual, working with photos (mine) and extrapolating my imagination all over the place. It's painted a lot more loosely than my usual style (you can't quite tell from the photo, because the painting is rather large so it reads more tightly painted than it really is), and I left off a lot of detail work I'd usually get caught up in. It was fun to see how much I could push the color in the moon light--even now, looking at it, I think I could have gotten away with more, but I think it's time to move on. Anyway, more updates soon, most likely involving sharks and foxes (guess which ones Sebbie is playing with?) as those are the current works in progress.
