Expand: Experimental reception this Thursday!

Me and a detail from "Launch," collage with acrylic on canvas.

Join us for the artists' reception

Thursday, June 23, 5-8pm

I'm showing experimental works with Ken Elliott, Victoria Eubanks, Carol Ann Waugh, and Mary Williams at Denver's amazing new Art Gym facility, 1460 Leyden Street.

My experimental works consist of a large collage with acrylic on canvas, along with a selection of collages from my Daily Mail series -- each made with paper elements gleaned from a single day's mail.

Free and open to the public, the show continues through July 3, 2016. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10am - 6pm.

Upcoming Events / Exhibitions

Solo show at Spark Gallery, Denver, Colorado.
August 18 to September 11, 2016
Save the date: Opening reception is Friday, August 19, 6-9pm

Mask Project, a benefit for Denver Hospice
I was invited to apply artwork to a blank, life-size 3D mask for online auction. And yep, my contribution is collaged! :) All masks will be on display at the Cherry Creek Shopping Center in Denver from September 12 - October 9, 2016 with simultaneous online bidding

"Foundling," created for Denver Hospice's Mask Project.
If you're not already aware of the groundbreaking Women of Abstract Expressionism show that just opened at the Denver Art Museum, be sure to add it to your must-see list for this summer! The dynamic painting above is "Bullfight," by Elaine de Kooning, 1959.

Besides logging time with family, including quick trips to Santa Fe and Napa, I'm hard at work preparing for a solo show at Spark Gallery later this summer. The concept behind this series takes my collages in quite a different direction! 
I'm also involved in a collaborative art installation for the Firehouse Art Center with Victoria Eubanks, Ken Elliott, and Mary Williams. We are teamed with a local farm and are responding to our experience exploring the farm and its products for an installation in August in Longmont, Colorado. Details to come.

Workshop, anyone? I'm considering teaching a one-day workshop on my collage processes in September or October. If you might be interested, please drop me an email. I'll have more details in the next newsletter.

Thanks for your interest in my work -- here's to a great summer!
