This month, I begin my week long residency in St. Johns at Pulp & Deckle! Many thanks to Shir and Jenn! http://www.c3initiative.org/combined-papermaking-residency.html
Happy New Year! To kick off the new year, I will be in a group show along with fellow artists: Marcy Baker (monotypes), Sheryl Funkhouser (etchings with chine colle), Liza Jones (prints with drypoint), Stephen Leflar (line etchings), Paul Miller (photo etchings), Mark Perry (prints with collagraph), Gary Rawlins (lithographs), Nicole Rawlins (mezzotint & ink lift), John Salina (engravings), Michael Southern (etchings with spit bite), Renee Ugrin (reductive woodcuts), and Margaret van Patten (etchings with soft ground, mezzotint and more). I will have two pieces in the show pictured below. If you are interested in more recent work please feel free to contact me.
The RiverSea Gallery is located at 1160 Commercial Street, Astoria, OR. 503-325.1270
The show dates are January 11 - February 4, 2014.
Opening Reception will be on January 11 from 5pm - 8pm during Astoria's Second Saturday Art Walk!
I hope to see you there!
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),
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! ;-)
Greetings! The Gallery talk on May 7, 2011 went very well.
As soon as I get the talk off my digital camera, I will upload it here for your viewing pleasure!
But for now here is a picture of me with the dress that I wore at the talk. Enjoy! And thank you to Ruth Waddy for sewing the concentra pieces together for my fabulous dress!
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."
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 email@example.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.
Atelier Meridian is hosting their monthly Ink & Drink. This month, I will be doing a screenprint demonstration using contact paper and direct draw screenprinting methods.
If time allows, I will also do a photo screen demo. There will be snacks and drinks at this event. Ink and Drink events are free and run from 6pm - 10pm. Children are welcome. ;-) Hope to see you there!
Atelier Meridian is located at 665 N. Tillamook Street, Portland OR 97227.
I had just finished listening to Simon Winchester’s audio book on Krakatoa. Before detonating itself into oblivion and killing over 36,000 people in the ensuing tsunami’s, Krakatoa was an island paradise in the middle of the Indian Ocean. I needed to do a drawing so I began with a smooth piece of cloth. Embroidery to me is like drawing but onto cloth instead of paper. During the course of the embroidery, the addition of circles pushed the cloth up and out, like little volcanoes.
