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.

Marine Arts Gallery, October 13th – November 5th- Extended!

Update!, My work being exhibited at The Marine Arts Gallery in Marblehead, MA is being extended a few weeks!

The 47 year established gallery is in a new, year-old space after selling their former property to the Peabody Essex Museum for their major expansion. There is quite a range of my work being shown including some of my largest pieces, at close to 3′ x 4′, to small works and studies at 6″ x 6″.

This has been my first exhibition on the North Shore and so far it has been a fantastic experience! We had a very successful opening night on the 13th with great responses and reactions, not to mention getting to know some of the local art community. The gallery has a high caliber group of regional artists and it has so far been wonderful to work with them.

While some work has sold, there is still plenty to see (more than 20 pieces) if you are in the Salem/Marblehead area. I’m not sure exactly the closing date as it may depend on the wee babe, but will keep you posted!

Happy Spring! Be sure to pick up your April copy of South Shore Living Magazine which highlights one of my lastest pieces, “Barrel”, in their Last Scene Here feature. South Shore Living Magazine has been SO supportive of my work in the last year, they have been so amazing to work with and a fantastic local publication. If you not in the South Shore area you can check out their blog here along with an article they ran on my work last November, “Into the Deep”.

“Barrel” is 29″ x 44″ x 2″ and is part of an ongoing new series of water pieces where I’m exploring the textures and light in water at extreme close ups and angles.

The Opening Reception will be from 1pm to 2:30pm on January 10th.

A Sunday mid-day opening seems so different and kind of awesome. I am so looking forward to seeing the latest at the museum as well! It’ll be quite the weekend as I’ll be in NYC for my other exhibition opening at the Woodward Gallery the day before, “New Work, New York” (see more on the show here).

Whew! Here’s to an exciting start to 2016!

It’s even more special that the gallery is around the corner from my first apartment in New York when I moved to the Lower East Side in 2000. Kind of fun to be near my old hood (even though it is SOOO much nicer now than back then)! Hope to see you at the opening!
