Our exhibition, Home \ Away: a mother & daughter exhibition, came to a close the first Saturday of February in 2019. A flurry of visitors attended the last week and the very last evening. Including some of my mom's oldest and dearest friends. An amazing success, we sold almost every collaborative art piece by the last day.
In addition, our exhibition is celebrated in a review by Carol Colin that appeared in the January 2019 issue of LA ART NEWS. LA-Art-News-Review-2019.pdf
Much gratitude to my mom, Suzanne Siegel for working collaboratively with me, to our gracious host Lynn Shaw for opening up Chez Shaw Gallery to us, and to all our many patrons and supporters. Thanks to Nat Losbaker for helping with the install and Angelica Garza for helping de-install.

Popped and Kernels are two new photographic strips created for this viewing at the Festival. I originally built this Zoetrope for an exhibition in 2007 and now it occasionally reappears in special places. Here's a chance to spin it and go out to the movies and watch some amazing animation.
The Zoetrope is a pre-cinema device that creates a visual effect of an animated image. The mechanism is a drum containing slits and a set of still images that when turned in a circular fashion creates the illusion of motion. This viewing device was invented by William George Horner in 1834 and originally was called the Daedatelum.
A huge thanks to Sven Bonnichsen, festival director, and Gretchin Lair for the invitation!

Hold On Tight
A group exhibition to benefit The Rosewood Initiative
November 2 to December 3, 2017
Opening Recption, First Thursday, 6-9pm, Nov 2nd, 2017
Exhibtion is a project organized by Maria T.D. Inocencio, here idea behind the show is:
"The current climate of division we are experiencing has been destabilizing. People from a variety of backgrounds feel threatened and uncertain about the future. One way of dealing with our sense of uncertainty is to turn to each other, to reach out and to hold on tight. By building our community and working together, we can comfort and encourage one another to create the respectful and inclusive world that we want to live in."
"The Rosewood Initiative is a community center in east Portland, originally created through a joint effort by local stakeholders and PPB officers in order to increase safety in their neighborhood. Today, Rosewood serves a diverse low-income population that includes, refugees, immigrants and the homeless, connecting them to support for needs as basic as food, shelter and safety."

Grateful for a spectacular burn on the Beach! Thanks all that came out.
The entire camp burned making art. Fortunately, we had cool waters to smooth and rejuvente us. Tangerine sunsets were a gift of the smoke and heat.
I'm grateful to have met so many wonderful and creative folks while teaching book arts for CAC at Menucha. Terrific students, fantastic staff and amazing instructors/artists, all and all a very inspiring week.
