Opening my studio

The day before yesterday I actually managed to open my studio to the public. (With a lot of help from my boyfriend.) There was an event on our street and it was the first day I people could visit. We had a few people stop by. I would have liked more but perhaps in the future and with more notice that it would be open would gather more attention.

With that in mind This coming weekend, Dec 9th & 10th), I intend to have it open again. 10am – 4 or 5pm. Possibly the following saturday as well. (And by appointment.) So if you are interested let me know, the studio is in Coxsackie NY.

I will update on my Facebook page as well. Below are photos of the studio on sunday.

Earth Day & Recycled Art Show

Happy Earth Day! I hope all of you are enjoying the spring weather and being mindful. In the spirit of that I was chosen to be in an exhibit at the Greene County Council on the Arts (Catskill, NY). “Off the Walls: From Junk to Art” The guest curator was sculptor Willie Cole and the theme is recycled arts. Appropriately the opening reception is this evening 5-7pm. This show will remain up from today (April 22nd) through May 27th. I hope you’ll have a chance to visit the gallery. 


You will also be able to find some of my lampshades on the second floor of the gallery.

Parts of the Whole

That was the theme I was working with for the Sketchbook Project 2015. It’s been mailed in and currently awaiting being scanned and then embarking on a national mobile book tour beginning, of course, in Brooklyn.  But before being mailed it I took pictures to share. I’m going to show you pieces of pages and some full pages but not all of them… something has to be left for you to see when it becomes available to browse online and in person.

I will say that in working on it I jumped from page to page not simply front to back, all if the pages have the date on them (somewhere and tiny) in case anyone was ever interested. As for parts of the whole, I interpreted it differently every time I started. So it could be a part of a thought, a bigger picture, a day, part of nearly anything. Also I realized that after it left my hands I forgot to write my email, website, or facebook fanpage addresses on it.  Oops. Oh well, at least all of that could be added to my profile online to connect to the sketchbook information later.
