Visual Destination: at Woodward Gallery, NYC

I am totally thrilled to be part of a new exhibition, “Visual Destination”, at the Woodward Gallery from June 21 – July 27th. Showcasing 3 female artists: myself, Susan Breen, and Margaret Morrison (both of which I am a huge fan) the exhibit celebrates different ideas of nature. More on the show at the Woodward Gallery’s website here.

The piece is a respite from my current water-work, but in these smaller pieces I like to change things up from time to time. If you would like to come see the work, it will be in the big tent on Cohasset common for the weekend of June 17th – June 19th. There is an award ceremony for all of the prize winners at the stage on the common at 5pm on the 17th if you want to stop by and say ‘hi’ and glad a lobster roll or strawberry shortcake!
