In 2014 I created this version of my website, the grid was one of the first home page images of current art. My domain name remained the same since 1997 and from spring of 2010 until autumn 2014 I was blogging on this site. Since combining both on this version, it’s been an enjoyable art form for me.
Celebrating 50th Year as an Artist, 2014-2016 brings to mind major exhibitions, expanded art series, hospital purchases, beginning of Sunwise Celebration Open Studios, public art, bead jewelry, and expanding product lines beyond greeting cards and Giclee prints. Our humble Sunwise Farm and Sanctuary became an official Monarch Waystation.
Let us do our best, even if it gets us nowhere might be my favorite piece of all time. Community Art Center invited me to give a gallery talk about its evolution. It was used for publicity of the Drawn to Kentucky: Works on Paper exhibit at Arts Place Gallery. There were several other group shows from this period; More&more, notBIG(3), Fertile Ground, Beyond the Horse, HORIZON – Contemporary Landscape 2015, New Year, New Art, Juxtapose, Firmly Rooted.
Please explore the links included here, I wrote extensively on these subjects!
Birds of a Feather, featured works on paper and found object sculptures with guest artist, Lesley Patterson-Marx. We collaborated on a few pieces. Another collaboration included music of Helen Davey. Very focused on drawing, there was a big series on Twinrocker Linen paper, some of which was purchased by UK HealthCare. They were in a solo show, On a Wing, at Woodford County Library.
Talismans was a different sort of solo show, in that there were talismans for the wall and to wear. I introduced my bead jewelry, beads of antique, ancient, vintage and handmade varieties, displayed with ID tags.
