It’s a New Year and all the work I did in December planning for this year has already shown some pay off for the effort which is immensely gratifying. My first show opens this Friday, January 4th in St. Louis at the Soulard Art Gallery. The exhibition’s theme is abstract art. I am showing for the first time work from a new series called Patterns of Healing. I am hoping to see how it holds itself on the wall with other work of varying mediums. These works are small, only 8x 10”. I am hoping that a grouping of three of them and a good spot light on them will give them the heft I desire, so they don’t visually get lost in the exhibition. The only way to know is to try. So while, this is an exhibition, for me it is a bit of a studio experiment. It takes some bravery to release new work into the world uncertain as to how it will look and be received. But then jumping into the unknown is my specialty, I know it will always lead me to learning something new. I hope you can make it to the opening from 7-9 and give me your opinion.
Ring Around the Rosies along with two other knit sculptures from the Woman’s Work series will be heading south this month for the exhibition Soft at the Sulfur Studios in Savannah, Georgia. The show opens January 17 and runs through February 2nd. I have far more confidence sending these works out into the world as I made them nearly 20 years ago! (Holy moly!!!) I’ve seen them installed in various configurations, so I have confidence. I unfortunately won’t make it to that opening, but if you do, please send me a few pics. I’d appreciate it.
I leave you for now with this quote from Picasso.
