My work was recently featured in a project by art historian, Henry Martin. His biography on Agnes Martin is due to be released in the US this March. As part of that release Henry began an online project, "100 Days, 100 Women". His vision for the project is to reduce the male bias in the art world.
"100 Days 100 Women is a corrective measure I can take as a biographer and art writer, to not only educate myself on contemporary art practice by women artists known and unknown to me, but also to fight against historical precedent in the disappearance of art by women in art history books, the marketplace, and human consciousness.”
My work is featured here. Be sure to visit the home page of the project to discover other fantastic work.

On view in "Good Wonder" at ASU
This time of year has become like harvest time for me. The new ideas that I grew in the spring and summer are bearing fruit in the form of exhibitions. Tonight the Biennial opens at Five Points Gallery in Torrington, CT. If you're in the area, it promises to be a strong showing of 60 artists working in diverse media.
In two weeks time, "Good Wonder" will open at ASU's Gallery 100 located in the university's Tempe campus. Curated by ASU gallery director, Grant Vetter, the exhibit explores themes of mysticism, sensory and environmental phenomenon, spectacle, and the metaphysical. (All of which is kind of "my bag" as it were.)
This week I also packed up drawings and sent them to Boston for exhibition. A selection of work from my small format sketchbook drawings will be part of an installation at Liquid Art House located in the Back Bay. Another diminutive work, at 8 x 10", will be part of this year's Hallspace Drawing Project at Hallspace Gallery in Dorchester, MA. That show opens August 21 with a reception on September 2 from 3 to 6 pm.
If that's enough for you, the PrattMWP faculty show will be installed at the end of this month in the school's new-to-it gallery space at Fountain Elms. I anticipate showing some garden paintings. The show opens September 8 from 5 to 7. The opening is usually well attended and buzzing with the energy of the new year. Come join us!

In other news, my newest series of work has gotten a mention by Ann Landi of Vasari21; and now I am busy framing pieces for collectors who have made purchases from the series. Keep your eyes open at TD Originals and ODV wines for one of the drawings. It should be framed and shipped in a month.
