I have eight new cut silhouette pieces in the “Instinct to Dream” series begun last year. My studio is full with hanging city vignettes. In addition, I’ve suspended my tiny watercolor maquettes in frames, and will be hanging scores of sketchbook sketches from my “Thursday Sketch Day” practice.
This year I’ll be experimenting with sliding scale pricing on most work. I would love to make my work available, as best as I’m able, to anyone who wants to take it home.
I hope to see you this weekend!
This Fall is turning out to be a busy season for my work. In addition to a private corporate show at New England Biolabs, I currently have two pieces in the Nave Gallery’s Our Town exhibit,
featuring works of and about Somerville, MA. During the run of this show, don’t miss Wrap Around, Sat. and Sun., Nov. 13 and 14
a fund-raiser for the Somerville Homeless Coalition.
Opening November 18, look for my work included in Plenty at 13FOREST in Arlington, MA. Plenty
is the annual small works holiday show, so it’s a great place to look for gifts.
From November 15 through the New Year, my work will be filling the walls of Club Passim
in Harvard Square. If you’re going to hear a great concert, or just going for the tasty vegetarian food, you’ll have a chance to see a large selection of my work, filling the main hall. I’m working now on finishing some new work in time to hang it next week!
Friday, August 6th, come to Jamaica Plain for a book-release party and art exhibition.
RIFRÃKT artists’ collective announces its premiere publication launch party, for 25 Emerging Boston Artists 2010.
The book features 25 artists, residing throughout the metro Boston area, with work ranging in medium and process. Each artist in represented by a two page spread featuring their artwork and statement.
Two of my collaged wood-block prints are in the book, and will be hanging that evening as well. If space permits, I’ll also hang my very newest piece that I just finished this week. It’s a larger woodblock-print collage that I’m really excited about, in a new series.
