Check out this wonderful article written by Dan Sadowsky with OPB: Northeast Portland Gallery Auctions Creative Collaborations. I had so much fun working on this project and i'm very excited about all of the creativity coming out of the Art From the Heart program. The benefit auction event is happening tonight (Thursday) at Art From the Heart on Broadway.
Here are a few of the groupings from the Realty Trust exhibit - works in encaustic and mixed media- showing now through end of October.
Just finished hanging the Realty Trust exhibit this week. It's a solo show of 32 of my encaustic and mixed media paintings. You can see the show now through the end of October.
Beginning a new series at the Oregon Coast this week, while I'm here to teach. Check out my studio with a view.
From May 13th, 2013
I spent a great day at Albertina Kerr's Art From the Heart today. Several of the artists involved in the collaborative show and auction project gathered for a meet and greet with the great people at the Art From the Heart studio. What a great program. They are not only providing a top notch creative space, but they are selling the art to the public. I bought a piece by one of the artists, Terry Holt. He loves to play with numbers and do math work, so numbers become part of the mark-making in many of his pieces. His favorite number? 35, which is featured prominently near the center of the piece. I'm really excited about this project and the people involved.
I'm teaching at Slug Soup this week at the Oregon Coast. It's a terrific art literacy program for kids - plenty of creativity and energy! Some of my students, third and fourth graders, are doing a collaborative painting that I'm really excited about (pictures to come).
Another exciting stop was at MOMA, where we saw everything from Pollack to Picasso. One of the more interesting paintings, though, was a Marcel Duchamp piece called Network of Stoppages, painted in 1914. I found it so interesting, for the same reason I like a lot modernist painters - it just seems way ahead of its time.
I'm working on a collaboration with artist, David Marquiot, to benefit Albertina Kerr Center.Read More
