Happy Spring…even if it does NOT feel like it…in NJ at least. But I know Mother Nature will come through soon and send some warmer weather. And in honor of this season of re-birth, I’m in some spring art exhibits….one is in Morristown, NJ & the other is ONLINE so you ALL can see it from the comfort of your cozy homes.
First up is the RITES OF SPRING, juried, group show hosted by the Arts Council of the Morris Area at Gallery at 14 Maple, Morristown, NJ. This exciting show opens Wednesday, 3/27/13, 6-8pm. Come visit this amazing green gallery space where everything is constructed of natural, recycled materials and there’s even an indoor vertical garden going through the center of the building! One of my X-RAYted digital photo collages is in this show.
My solo, online show features many of my digital photo collages from my X-RAYted series. The show will be up until 4/15/13 on Caladan Gallery‘s website: http://www.CaladanGallery.com Thanks to gallery director Marjorie Kaye for giving me this opportunity! Since this is online I hope you’ll all take a minute to check it out and post any comments here on my blog. A note…all the prices for my work in this show INCLUDE framing and s/h/insurance!!
Thanks for reading and looking forward to seeing you at an event or reading your comments!
Social networking does work and it’s great when you make connections that really click! I connected with artist/Churn Magazine guru Jeff Monje via LinkedIn and right away he was kind enough to feature me in his art zine! So, of course, I invited him to be a guest blogger here to return the favor and so he could share his inspiration with you as to how he developed his project. So, here’s what he has to say…check out CHURN…you won’t be disappointed!
Happy March…Spring is almost here….can you feel it? Getting the ol’ energy back so I’m very excited to announce the following exhibits that my work has been selected for and I’d like to invite you to join me at the opening receptions (or please stop by when you can to view the work)…
