I have some very exciting news to share, both of my paintings, In the Pink and Feathers have been selected for Rise, a nationally juried show organized by Gutfreund Cornett Art in conjunction with Whitney Modern that will run July 18 – August 31, 2018 in Los Gatos California.

“RISE: Empower, Change and Action!¬†seeks to bring artists into dialogue and to bring forth what is important to self, community, our nation and the world at large through art that reflects and addresses complex socio-cultural issues and focuses on a vision 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.” – from the show’s prospectus.

Such an honor to be exhibiting with this great array of artists working for empowerment, equality and social justice!¬† Mark you calendar, the reception will be held at the Whitney Modern, 24 N Santa Cruz Ave (on the second floor) Saturday, July 21, I’ll post the exact time closer to the date.
