The Big Show at Lawndale Art Center

Opening Reception
Friday, July 7, 2017, 7- 9 PM
Awards announced at 8 PM

Be sure to see this show featuring one of my stapled glove sculptures.

"The Big Show is an ambitious annual exhibition of new work by artists practicing within a 100-mile radius of Lawndale. This year, Lawndale was excited to welcome Toby Kamps, former Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Menil Collection and soon-to-be Director and Chief Curator of the Blaffer Art Museum, as juror. Kamps reviewed work by 549 artists – the most artists to submit their work in the history of The Big Show - and selected nearly 200 works for the exhibition."

Upcoming Exhibition: Gray Contemporary Gallery

This two-person solo show will feature my work in the back gallery and Robby Scott's paintings in the front gallery.  The exhibition will showcase a few favorites from my beaded tree bark series focusing on the effects of wildfires in America and the process of regeneration after a natural disaster.   

Opening Reception: July 8th, 5-8 PM

Location: Gray Contemporary Gallery

C.V.P. at Wilchester Elementary School

Wilchester Elementary School hosted their annual Art Expo Day featuring The Creeping Vine Project.  This was a great opportunity to have roughly 800 students from grades pre-k to 5th learn about the project and contribute by adding fabric strips to the wire backing.
