Going Back to Cali Triptych is complete!

In April 2011 I received a commission for 3 panels based on my CA Transplant series "The Feast Before Us" and "Streptopus roseus".  And yesterday I finished it!  Here they are beginning with the left panel (columbine), part of Going Back to Cali triptych

and the right panel (Streptopus roseus)

: In this commissioned work, I wanted to create new work that would be seen as a seamless continuation of the CA Transplant series.  I feel I have succeeded and I am very very pleased with the outcome! ;-)

Concentra Opening May 5, 2011

Well, the show has been hung, prices and labels are being corrected.  I was worried about the large installation (Contour lines, targets and growth rings) but thanks to the crack installation crew it went up easily and painlessly! Come to the Opening on First Thursday May 5, 2011 from 6-9pm at Blackfish Gallery 420 NW 9th, Portland, OR!  And if you can't make it to the Opening, I'll be giving an artist talk about the work on Saturday May 7 from 1-2pm.  Hope to see you there!

Here is another sample of 1 of the 56 pieces that make up, "Contour lines, targets and growth rings."

Screenprinting with Monotype

I will be teaching a screenprinting with Monotype workshop at Atelier Meridian on Sunday, March 27 from 10am - 5pm.

In this class you will learn the basics of photo screenprinting by printing on paper and exploring the use of mixed media. We can also print on fabric, so feel free to bring your own T-shirts! Any image or drawing on mylar can be used, or copy some clip art. Students will experiment with color by combining monotype elments with their screen prints, resulting in unique monoprints. All inks will be water based and non-toxic.  The workshop fee of $125* plus $15 supply fee, includes ink, newsprint and two sheets of proofing paper. Additional paper available at cost.

To register for class please contact Jane Pagliarulo to register: 503-729-9013 or email jane@ateliermeridian.com. *$25 deposit or **$50 non-refundable deposit required to hold your space. Deposit can be applied to a future class should you need to cancel.
