artist statement



Happy November! Here is some news on past and upcoming shows:

•  I am so pleased to be a part of a group exhibition in New York City this November. The exhibition, entitled “Converge: Where Classical & Contemporary Art Collide,” was created and curated by Allison Malafronte, former senior editor of American Artist magazine. Allison is an arts writer, editor, columnist, and curator based in New York City. You can see more on the exhibition and the curator’s statement at the following link: www.convergeartnyc.com.

•  I was also fortunate to have had my first solo exhibition here in Philadelphia at Artists’ House Gallery in Old City. The show was on display from October 3-28, but if you are still interested in any of the pieces on the website (http://www.artistshouse.com/artist/?id=420), feel free to contact Artists’ House for more information!

•  My painting “the uncertain silence” won an Anna Hyatt Huntington Bronze Medal at the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club’s 116th Annual Open Exhibition this October! You can see the exhibition online at the following link: http://www.clwac.org/onlineexhibition/onlineexhibit5/onlineexhibit5.html

•  •In early October I spent a week painting with friends in Barcelona! It was a terrific time, though we did run into some trouble with the law… apparently it is illegal to paint on the streets of Barcelona! Who knew? Anyway, please see my friend’s tongue-in-cheek video about our strange experiences and our dangerous art addiction problem: http://youtu.be/lpQr3tF06zs


•  I contribute to the blog Women Painting Women, featuring contemporary women artists who paint images of women: check it out at www.womenpaintingwomen.blogspot.com.
