BUST - ed!

My 3 Tributaries exhibition was mentioned in this month's issue of BUST magazine! For those of you not in the know, "BUST is a groundbreaking, independently run women's lifestyle magazine that connects with bright, cutting-edge young women. Fierce, funny, and proud to be female, its revolutionary editorial mix addresses a variety of women's interests, including pop culture, crafting, music, fashion, sex, news and celebrity interviews."

Thanks to Libby Zay for the mention of the show AND, more importantly, National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, October! The mention is in the "Hot Dates" section on page 19, for any of you with a subscription, otherwise, here's a screen capture...


And as a reminder, I will be hosting a FREE collograph printmaking workshop for anyone and everyone in the area of Blue Mountain Lake, on November 3rd, from 3 - 5:30 pm, with the exhibition's closing reception right after from 5:30 - 7pm. Hope to see ya, NY!

Strokes of Genius

A while ago, I submitted a few pieces for inclusion in the national juried (Mark Karnes) exhibition of painting, Strokes of Genius at the Maryland Federation of Art in Annapolis. First of all, what a cool title, and secondly, I'm really happy to have been accepted into the exhibition with my watercolor on paper piece, Mark II...

Strokes of Genius runs November 2 - 24, 2012, see you there!

3 Tributaries Opens TODAY!

I am very excited about my solo show, which opens today! I will be up in Blue Mountain Lake for the reception in November! With the help of Laura Smith (their previous gallery director), we set up some really great events that the community can participate in. More information about the exhibition and additional programming is below: 

3 Tributaries
On view October 5 - November 3, 2012 at the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts, Blue Mountain Lake, NY
Closing Reception: November 3, 2012 from 5:30 - 7pm

There will be a domestic violence advocate from Hamilton County available at the closing reception with information on domestic violence and prevention.
Additionally, I will hold a FREE printmaking workshop on November 3, 3-5:30 pm (ETA: date has changed!) in recognition of National Domestic Violence Awareness month. This process is the same one used for the series, 3 Tributaries. "One of the most important resources for people experiencing domestic violence is a safe space, emotionally, spiritually and physically. Explore your own thoughts and experiences with ‘safe spaces’ in the form of a collograph printmaking workshop. This hands-on workshop will detail creating a printmaking plate as well as a simple hand printing process that can be easily duplicated at home.”

(And currently, this piece, 'Home', is up for silent auction at the art center. All proceeds benefit Community Action of Hamilton County)

I hope you can find the time to join us!
