I am a cover girl, well my art is! I am pleased to share that my work was included in the October 2017 edition of Whurk magazine. The magazine covers art and culture throughout the state of Virginia with great articles and design. You can pick it up for free across the state, or read it here.
My work was also selected for the September edition of Average Art published in the UK
“An Almost Unnoticed Quietus” opened on October 4 at the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum and will run through December 20, 2017. The exhibition showcases the work made during my sabbatical season and includes mixed media drawings made in Paris and Roanoke. A wonderful article on the exhibition was published in the Roanoke Times and can be read here.
As the summer of 2017 heats up, I am working hard in the studio preparing for a solo museum exhibition in the fall. This gives me a chance to explore in greater depth some of the ideas and concepts I began in Paris and to continue to push what I am doing with drawing and the surfaces I am drawing and printing on. Although many things are still in the works, I have decided on the exhibition title, “An almost unnoticed quietus”.
Happy to share that I just shipped three of my prints to be exhibited at the Duoro Biennial 2018 and the 3rd Global Print 2017 in Portugal. Wish I could join them!
During the months of March and April 2017, I had the great honor of being an artist in residence at the Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris France. The experience was amazing. The facility is in Le Marais a historic district in Paris with numerous museums, galleries, and excellent examples of Parisian architecture. I made some wonderful new friends and loved every minute. The work produced there will soon be posted, but here’s an example in the meantime.
My prints will be shown as part of two exhibitions for this year’s SGC International Conference in Atlanta, Georgia – Out of the Frame, Off the Walls at Eyedrum Gallery, and The University of Georgia Alumni Show at Gallery 72. SGC International is world’s largest organization of printmakers and the annual conference is always an amazing event.
During the months of January and February 2017, I had the pleasure of being an artist in residence at the Artist House at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. I felt at home in the gorgeous environment and loved seeing where sky and water meet on a daily basis. In the studio, I began a new series of large mixed media drawing.
I am pleased to share I was awarded a Denbo Fellowship from Pyramid Atlantic Art Center. This fellowship gave me the chance to work on a new body of prints. The image above is one of the prints I printed at PAAC amazing facilities. More images will be uploaded soon!
