"Like Mother" exhibit

"... Mother" returns next week

It’s like Homecoming Week up in here: “Like Mother” opens its doors in North Seattle next Wednesday, this time at the North Seattle College art gallery.

Notice there are two opportunities for you to see our work that day! If your schedule allows, you can join us that afternoon. If not, then join us in the early evening and wait out rush hour looking at art instead of sitting in traffic. I promise, it’s far more pleasant to breathe in the sweet smell of beeswax from Deborah Kapoor’s encaustic art installation.

Maybe you have to head home right away, though; I understand. Rest up on Friday, then join me Saturday evening in Shoreline for the opening of “Living the Dream.”

Hope to see you soon — maybe at both events!

"Like Mother..." at TAM: supporting each other

Onward and upward!

Up to the third floor of the Tacoma Art Museum, which is hosting the current manifestation of Like Mother, Like Daughter until the end of March. After the hectic pace of the past few months, I really appreciated the opportunity to unwind, in a sunny room, with the contributing artists.

What better way to celebrate Women's History Month than with these beautiful minds and their work?

Speaking of supporting people you love...

... someone has spoken up for a collage in the exhibit You're Not From Around Here, Are You? In fact, the collector contacted me two different ways to make sure this piece was still available for purchase.

If you're interested in one of these pieces, please let me know through the Contact Me page. (And yes, I do installment payment plans.) If you haven't already, I'd suggest you visit the exhibit while it's still up at the Northwest African American Museum: art always looks so much better in person.

Next stops: protests, Pioneer Square, Pacific Place

This weekend I'm taking a short break from art, but not for long and not just to chill out. I'm joining several friends to show solidarity with the Women's March on Washington. Watch my Instagram account: I'll be posting images from the march, especially of the more artistic signs and protesters.

Next week: two February art exhibits. I recently got word both my artworks were accepted into the "Like Mother" show at ArtXchange Gallery in Pioneer Square! 

I've also been invited to show work at a pop-up art gallery in downtown Seattle. You might remember my work a couple of years ago at Alki Arts' celebration of Black History Month.

This year, my dear friend (and one-woman cheering squad) Diane Venti is hosting the show at Pacific Place. More details on the shows soon... meanwhile, I'm going to rest up for tomorrow. If you're marching anywhere in the world, tag me on Instagram so I can see what you see!
