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.

Novograts Holiday Pop-Up Shop!

Whew, what a whirlwind of a December! Between openings and auctions, commissions and holiday gifts, I have been a little winded. It has taken me a a couple of weeks to pull my bits and pieces back together! Now that I’m slightly less disorganized (for the moment) I wanted to share one of the highlights of the season, my invitation to work with the Novogratz as part of their Holiday Pop-Up Shop!

On Thursday, December 14th, I was lucky enough to be part of their month long celebration of design, art, music and good cheer! I spent the day in the shop on 14th Street live painting one-of-a-kind ornaments using my acrylic techniques. A few lucky people were able to take one home, FOR FREE, courtesy of the lovely and generous Novogratz. I also had a larger piece of my work on display and was able to talk art, holidays, and generally just hang in a gorgeous space with cool people for the day! There were musicians on hand with jazzy-seasonal songs, time to hang with Robert Novogratz and Kristine Woodward of the Woodward Gallery as well as all the other staff and visitors! It really was such an awesome experience and feel so lucky to have been a part of it! As it turns out, the Woodward Gallery has held onto the piece I brought down, “Amplified” to be part of their upcoming, so stay tuned to hear more about that!

So grateful to be a small part of this amazing project, many thanks to the Woodward Gallery for the recommendation, to Robert for spending so much of his day with me, you are so kind and real, and to all the friends, family and visitors who came out! For more on the day and the other artists featured, see the Woodward Gallery’s site,  and the Novogratz’ blog, Cheers!

I was so thrilled to be asked to bring a new piece down to New York with me recently.

The Woodward Gallery ,who had invited me to be part of their recent exhibition, “New Work, New York”, also curates art for the Gourmet Garage.  In the days following the close of the exhibit they asked me to bring down a piece to be considered for the Gourmet Garage’s new Tribeca outpost. The painting, “Along the Front”, is 18″x 44″ x 2″ in three layers of plexiglas, now hangs over the sushi bar in the new location!

I received a shot from the gallery manager, but can’t wait to get down there again in another couple of weeks to see it in person! I’ll be sure to post an update!

Artist Reception: Sat., Jan. 9th from 6-8pm

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!
