A lot is going on all of a sudden, as seems to happen every year around this time through the month of October. It’s exciting, though, working on so many things at once!
First, I am thrilled that this piece, “Story,” has been awarded an Honorable Mention by judge Ames Hawkins in the Intersection: Art + Word show at the Oak Park Art League. I have another painting in the show as well, “Recollections,” and the show runs until October 6.

“Recollections” – 24″ x 18″ – Acrylic, collage, image transfer and wax on board
I also have a painting, “Signs,” up through the end of October in the cafe at Sugar Beet Co-Op in Oak Park. It is in the company of work by three other artists.

Another new painting, “Vessels,” has been accepted into a juried show called We Are Enough, at the Oak Park Art League, which opens October 13 and runs through November 3. I am so happy to be part of this show, and I will also have a really special piece to include in an exhibition of plaster casts of breast cancer survivors. I am working on it now, and this really deserves its own post, so I will wait to say more about it, except to say that this is a really emotional experience, and I am so honored to have been asked to participate.

I will also be part of a group show at Gallery Pink through the month of October. This one is also really personal and exciting because it is me and the three women I’ve been lucky to be in a critique group with for the past 3+ years. We meet roughly once every couple of months and trust each other with guidance and support. The show is called Inner Space/Outer Space, and the opening will be on Friday, October 6, from 5-9:00 pm. More details to follow.
And finally, FINALLY, I will have a bunch of work hanging in a great place called First Slice in Andersonville, also through the month of October. If you like pie and want to spend an hour or more in this very fun neighborhood full of independently owned businesses, here you go.
