VCCA France residency

VCCA France residency
I spent a wonderful residency at VCCA Moulin à Nef in Auvillar, France in early November. Auvillar is charming ancient village on the banks of the Garonne river northwest of Toulouse where I took many walks gathering flowers and inspiration and making new work.

Please join me on Thursday night, October 18, 2018 (from 6:00-9:00) for Open Studios, part of the NYC Garment District Arts Festival. I will be showing some work from my “Daily Paintings” of the sky series as well as collages and flower stain drawings, like the one shown here.

The Garment District Arts Festival takes place October 18-20 (although I'm only there on Thursday night). There are lots of other interesting artists in the building. Visit the 2017 Arts Festival Website for the most up-to-date festival information.

"Among Friends" show

"Among Friends" show
I am thrilled to have my collage included in AMONG FRIENDS, a group show organized by Alexandra Rutsch Brock, Beth Dary and Patricia Fabricant.

Inspired by the Robert Rauschenberg artwork “Hiccups”, seen last summer in the “Among Friends” exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, AMONG FRIENDS reflects and responds to the strength and illumination we find through art, friendship and community.

The show consists of more than 100 pieces of 9x7-inch handmade paper, each worked on by a different artist, zipped together into one continuous, exuberant piece.

Each individual piece is for sale for $250, with 10% going to Planned Parenthood.

Saturday and Sunday, April 28 and 29, 1 to 6 pm
In conjunction with DUMBO Open Studios
55 Washington Street, Studio 257, 2nd floor

"True North" exhibition

"True North" exhibition
TRUE NORTH opens at LABspace this Saturday, April 7th, 4-7pm

LABspace is pleased to invite you to the opening reception of True North, an exhibition and happening organized by Julie Torres.

True North is a survey and celebration of upstate NY and surrounding area artists who are connected and engaged at the local level — professionally and socially in real time, IRL.

By mapping out this vast visual record of area art makers we hope to strengthen and expand our community, and bring focus to the exciting work being made close to home.

Area artist and curator Julie Torres wallpapers the walls with small works on paper from nearly 200 area artists, and those who have been active at LABspace via past exhibits and events. All work on view has been selected with artist-friendly pricing in mind.

LABspace is dedicated to experiments in curation, exhibiting category-busting and/or materially surprising contemporary art, and hosting performance art, screenings, readings and music that push the boundaries of categorization, participation and/or experience.

LABspace is located on NY Rt 23 just west of NY Rt 22 in Hillsdale, NY (Columbia County.) The gallery is located behind and downstairs from CrossRoads Food Shop.

Visit LABspace on Saturdays, 1-5pm, beginning April 14.
True North is on view through May 2018.
