Fade Reception Date

Yay!

Director Lynne Todaro and I settled on a date for my Fade reception at Vargas Gallery, Wednesday, December 6 from 4-7 pm. Perfect timing for students, between classes and between holidays. I’m delighted to hear that the show, which began Nov 8, has been getting a great response and I am looking forward to entertaining visitors at the reception! I hope you can join me if you are in the area!!!

These are some of the “artist with her work” shots taken at the exhibit to come up with a show promotion…

Such a lovely space! Vargas Gallery is located in the Gillmor Center in the middle of the Mission College Campus. Gallery hours are Monday  & Wednesday 11 am – 2 pm and Thursday 3:30 -6:30 pm.

 

Installing Fade my Solo Show at Vargas Gallery

I was so delighted to throw together a last minute solo show for Vargas Gallery at Mission College! I’m calling it Fade – it’s a collection of my Fade to White work, exploring albinism and leucism in our flora and fauna, laced with larger pieces I’ve done over the years that touch on themes of vulnerability and tenacity, beauty and mystery.

The show will run November 9 – December 14 (Reception TBA) Thanks to Director Lynne Todaro for the opportunity and to Ashley at the gallery for her help setting up!

Bed of Ghosts to a Private Collection

Bed of Ghosts, found it’s way to a new home in the Santa Cruz Mountains this weekend – a surprise birthday present from husband to wife! It’s always exciting to me when a painting finds the perfect place it’s supposed to be.  I’ll miss these little fawns but look forward to  continuing to work with this theme: the startling glimpse of the surreal and vulnerable white in the dark and dormant woods – a ghost deer or an albino redwood, they both make for a haunting image. The albino deer make for such easy targets in the wild sadly, and if the internet is any judge, a desirable trophy for certain hunters (the one that I was lucky enough to see in the Sierras lived in a gated community). I hear there are albino redwoods nearby and I’d love to see them too although the conservationists are understandably guarding their locations closely. I will continue to paint their improbable beauty from a distance.
