After a long absence…
I’m back. And I’ve been busy. One of the projects I’ve been working on is for one of my absolute favorite organizations in divine Providence, Southside Community Land Trust. They create tiny farms all throughout the city, teaching folks how to grow and take their goods to market. Their annual fundraiser, Harvesting Hope is tomorrow night and I have four drawings that will be auctioned off to help them keep up this green work. Each drawing is one of four pollinators: monarchs and swallowtails, hummingbird, bumble and honey bees, and blue and sunbirds. Little creatures that help feed us. And it just so happens that they are all breathtakingly beautiful, so how could I not draw them?? The best news is that you can bid online…here. Take a look and at the very least learn a little about SCLT.
I have a couple exciting events coming up in the next month. One is a little more traditional, the other like a giant group therapy session.
The Providence Art Club’s juried show “Making Your Mark” opening April 2, celebrating contemporary Women artists.
Resistance Works: Art & Politics Rhode Island Artists Speak Out, which is a deep exhale from a group of artists reflecting on what has happened in the country since Nov. 9th.
Come to one, come to both. See some beautiful work either way.
Where to begin. 2017 seemed to contain so much hope after the year we had been through. From personal and family trials, to beloved celebrity deaths, to the end-of-days election…And now I wake up every morning, put on my imaginary Guy Fawkes mask and set out to stir up some shit.
Art has become my yogic breathing. Thank my stars that I get to do it for a living.
It’s been an unusual year that has had me tied up in knots, but I’m back with tons of work, ready to post. Starting with Mini Art at the Blink Gallery in Newport, RI. I have three (now down to 2 as one is already gone) mini originals in the show. It’s only up and available until January8th, so you should probably get in the car now.
Spring has finally shown its face and with it came a flurry of activity. Collaborations, makers fairs, new ideas, and a Gallery Night hosting. This wacky, dysfunctional little town has such amazing and talented people doing fantastic things…it’s what keeps us from jacking up the house and rolling it into the sea. One place you can see some of our wonder is the Makers & Merchants Sidewalk Sale this Saturday on Wickenden Street. Come visit our tiny corner of the world- shop, eat, and wish you lived here too! (Chicken and Kiwi will be available in special mini sizes)
