I know I have so much blogging to catch up on, but I wanted to let everyone know about the joint art exhibit that my work with Women Build is being displayed in. Lauri Bridgeforth & I were called upon to produce work for the Kalbian/Harris gallery at the Shenandoah Arts Council. Last night was opening night (yes, I know I should have blogged this in advance), and we had a great turnout of over a hundred people… if you don’t live in this area, that’s a great turnout for this small town. I met so many new faces, and made some great contacts with artists in the area.
The East/West Studio Faculty Show is also being shown in the David Holliday Gallery. This amazing group of artists has a wide variety of art on display. My favorite piece of the entire exhibit is a sculpture called “Gratitude” by Chrissy McFarren. It depicts a woman sitting indian style with a beautiful pregnant belly with her arms raised up in gratitude. I can’t wait to have that same gratification 😉 Chrissy’s other pieces (“Seasons of a Woman’s Soul” & “Ecstasy – The Tree Woman”) were also favorites of mine, so you must go see them, you will not be disappointed!
There are 18 pieces of mine on display, all depicting the hard-working women involved in the Women Build project. The show runs until December 12, so go check it out at the Shenandoah Arts Council located at 811 S. Loudoun Street in Winchester. Gallery hours are 1pm-5pm Tuesday thru Saturday.
Here’s a taste of the pieces I am showing:
