Save the Date for Rise!

Whitney Modern, in collaboration with Gutfreund Cornett Art, and guest juror Joan McLoughlin of McLoughlin Gallery, San Francisco, are pleased to present Rise: Empower, Change, Action! This juried exhibition features selected works in the gallery by thirty-six artists from locations around the country and additional twenty-five artists on a looping slideshow on a monitor in the gallery. If you are in the area, please join us for the reception and artist talk for Rise, Saturday, July 21, 12:30 – 3:30 pm (talk at 2:30).

RISE: Empower, Change and Action! brings artists into dialogue and brings forth what is important to self, community, our nation and the world at large through art that reflects on, addresses and seeks solutions for a more positive, empowering future, particularly for self-identified women and girls as well as their families. It is underpinned by the feminist principle that believes in political, economic and social equality for all. RISE emphasizes the commonalities of our human experience.

Join the conversation and see paintings, sculpture, printmaking, photography, collage and installations that speak for equality, independence and human rights while offering insight, healing and transformation.

Aviary on Fifth Avenue

More window shopping along Fifth Avenue at Bergdorf Goodman’s, this vignette is called A Bird’s Eye View. These windows glow  like jewels at night but during the day they play with the reflections of the city, creating a wintery dreamscape. Beyond all the white feathered birds here, I love the languid gesture of both the peacock’s neck and the manikin’s arm! In the final photo a woman seems to materialize from a glowing curtain of feathers!

New Work at the Gallery

New work was just hung at the Los Gatos Museums Gallery and it looks great! I’ll take you for a quick spin with my camera, but you really must go in to see it in person as my photos do not do any of the work justice!

Flourish at Los Gatos Museums Gallery

We’re located at 24 N. Santa Cruz Avenue in Los Gatos, California we’re open Tuesday through Friday: 10-5:30, Saturday: 10-5 and Sunday: 11- 3. The next art exchange will take place at the end of April.

Reception at the Triton

Yes, it feels every bit as good as I thought it might to have a painting hanging in the Triton! It’s such well regarded museum with a beautiful exhibition space and to have Feathers hanging alongside the works of so many of my piers made me feel truly at home! Thanks to friends and family who came out to share this evening with me – you’re the best!

First place was awarded to two artists this year (I know both of them!) Cuong Nguyen (who also won the painting competition last time ’round and is so good they might just devote a wing to him) and Holly Van Hart (who just joined the Los Gatos Museums Gallery). They each get a solo show!

In fact, the Gallery was very well represented with nine member artists in the show. In addition to Holly and me, there was David Stonesifer (with two pieces), Donna Orme, Will Maller, Ed Lucey, Ellen Howard, Linda Smythe, and Joan Harvey.

Artists I know and love, Jaya King (two pieces), Mei-Ying Dell’Aquila, Teresa Ruzzo and Brigitte Curt were also included. So much really interesting work – I need to go back for a better look!

Sometimes there are milestones along the way that you just need to celebrate, that’s how I feel about Feathers hanging in the Triton!

If you would like to celebrate with me come to the opening reception for the Triton’s 2013 Statewide Painting Competition and Exhibition is this Friday, December 13th from 6-8 pm, 1505 Warburton Ave, Santa Clara, California!

There will be lots of great work and one lucky artist will win a coveted solo show at the Triton Museum of Art!


These are the feathers I studied for the painting, here I’m tossing them like confetti into the air. I’m just that happy!

My “large” painting looks so small outside my studio, it’s such a matter of prospective, how will it fair in the museum?

There will be a reception Friday, December 13 from 6-8 pm.

My heart is still fluttering!
