                                                   Wheelhouse Art Gallery, June 2015

Life has been quite busy this past summer and fall.
After completing “Visceral Gravity”, a body of work that was exhibited at Wheelhouse Gallery in Santa Fe, June 26th- August 26th, I found myself, not painting, but catching up on all the little mundane activities that can fall off the rails when you immerse yourself in creative acts --website updates, taxes, laundry, self care of body, mind and spirit, scheduling and planning.

Wheelhouse Art, 418 Montezuma, here in Santa Fe is closing their doors at the end of October. Joyce Stolaroff did a fantastic job for the year plus she was on board. Now it is time for her to move on. I wish her all the best in her new endeavors.  If you have not seen the space go on down before it closes. 

Next month I will deliver new work to Friesen Gallery in Sun Valley, Idaho. I am excited to be trying out new work with them and a great excuse for a fall road-trip.
So to all my Ketchum Idaho friends, when meandering around town, please do stop on in.

I sent off smaller pieces to Chase Young Gallery in Boston, Massachusetts, for a group show upcoming in January 2016.


I am thrilled to announce that I am the recipient of the Lillian Orlowsky and William Freed Grant, 2015.  As part of this award, there will be an exhibit with three other fellow recipients. The scheduled opening will be sometime in September 2016 at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, Massachusetts. Stay tuned!

Back in Santa Fe,  I continue to offer workshop and classes from my lovely studio.  An upcoming schedule can be found at www.artworkshopsinsantafe.com.  I have added some diverse talent to come on board this winter.

 In January I will be offering a “One Day Retreat of Deep Listening and Discovery Through the Creative Acts of Continuum Movement and Process Painting”  with Lynette Kessler, Dance Movement Artist on January 23rd,  9-5pm.

Also in January (dates to be announced) Carrie Ronneau will be returning to offer her encaustic skills in her workshop “Viva Encaustica”.

Saturday, November 14th- 4-8pm, I will be hosting a group show in my studio. "The Alchemy of Mixed Media- Works of 7 Emerging Artists". Seven practicing artists that have been immersed in my workshops and classes over the last year and a half will be exhibiting. Elizabeth Pinson, Barbara Bally, Laura Newmark, George Maloof, Vickie Deane, Sara Mckenzie and Julia Meeks. Lauren Mantecon Studios- 123A Camino Teresa, Santa Fe, NM.

And for all those Marin County folks - I will be coming to town to facilitate a two day workshop, “The Alchemy of Mixed Media” in the ICB building of Sausalito. Tentative dates April 9th and 10th. Please contact me with your interest, space will be limited.
