Bare Your Soul

Last Wednesday night I submitted work to a show put on by Rhythmix Cultural Works. I don’t have a lot of expectations but it felt really good to have them in the mail. Plus, this is new place for me to submit work so that feels pretty exciting.

One of the works that I submitted to the show is a book entitled “Bare Your Soul” which invites the viewer to anonymously share themselves by answering questions in the book. I like the idea of art being interactive, collaborative created by multiple people.

This year, my challenge is to exhibit at as many places as I can, to create a fuller body of work that includes collage, books, photography and printing and to further develop an online presence and etsy store. Last Thursday night I attended and joined the group Alameda Women Artists. Very inspiring to me and lots of great work and energy.

More later… I’ll be sharing my Alameda on Camera experience and some photos.

Studies in Blue and Red at FBCA

Wow! My first post. It took me awhile but I did figure out my header. I’ve been wanting to put together a blog for a while now and I finally got the push from a great article by Kelly Rae Roberts in Cloth Paper Scissors magazine. Thank you Kelly Rae!

These two collage/paintings above are on display at Frank Bette Center for the Arts in Alameda in their current show “Vision & Revision” which is on until March 1, 2008. Tom introduced me to the FCBA and I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to exhibit at this great local gallery.

I’m in my first juried show! It also happens to be at FCBA: Alameda on Camera 2008 I’ll post more of my experience as this event and my art gets underway. The exhibit is April 4-26, 2008. Thanks for reading.
