In the "Red" at Ghost Gallery

If you’ve ever dreamed about seeing a butterfly swarm up close…

… you’re in luck. Next month, you can see a gallery-full in “Red List: Moths & Butterflies” at Ghost Gallery. And when I say ‘gallery-full’, I mean it — I’m one of 60 artists showing work in this exhibit. Have you seen the endangered butterflies in my “Rare & Exquisite” series in person?

This one, based on the dotted skipper, is part of Ghost Gallery’s show on endangered moths and butterflies in Canada, the United States and Mexico. A percentage of proceeds from the show will benefit the Xerces Society’s work to protect these animals and their habitats.

"Tourist": off to a new home

Looks like I spoke too soon about “Tourist” coming back from New Jersey: it’s going to someone else’s home. I just got word a new patron purchased the collage!

(Bonus: I won’t have to pay any return shipping costs!) Again, many thanks to the Long Beach Island Foundation and exhibit juror Dr. Louis Marchesano of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The best part of this news is that I have more room in my studio to work on new pieces. Excuse me while I go make good use of this art mojo…

LBIF Works on Paper: coming home with honors

“Tourist” is a prize winner! My collage is heading home from New Jersey, after winning second prize in the LBIF “Works on Paper” exhibit. Look at the company I’m keeping these days…

Deep thanks to Dr. Louis Marchesano of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, who juried the show and selected the prize-winning pieces as well as those awarded honorable mentions.

While I’m waiting for “Tourist” to arrive, I’ll keep busy at the Kirkland Arts Center. “Fracture” opens tonight, the show that includes the “They Don’t Really Feel Pain” assemblage sculpture. Feels like I’m on a roll!
