I have two pieces in the Mujeres, Mujeres, Mujeres Exhbition at Raices Taller Gallery in Tucson. The opening reception is Saturday. I wish I could be there but I am teaching two Living Social classes that day in Phoenix. For those who also can't be there, here are the reduction relief prints in the show:
If you are in the Tucson area, I hope you will go to see all the work. Let me know what you think of it.
I don't usually post pictures of my whole exhibition but this space is special. At the end of my reception Friday night, another one of teachers there sat with me in the gallery space. It was so soothing and she commented on it. I felt calm and happy. Then another artist friend who had been there wrote to me and commented on the space. She said "The exhibition space FELT like the confines of a contained space of water........just like a swimming pool. Did you notice?"And I hadn't exactly. But once she mentioned it, of course, it was plain to see. The walls are painted a grey/blue and the movable panels which are flush to the main wall are a truer blue. I want to thank Warren Norgaard and Edna Dapo, the gallery managers for inviting me to show here when another show cancelled at the last minute. I will enjoy popping in when I am teaching at the Phoenix Center this month. The gallery is right next door to my studio/classroom. The gallery is open now during business hours. Check with the office staff if you want to see the show. Or contact me for an appointment.
Living Social is now offering 3 hour printmaking workshops in April for $29 each. These are short samples of solarplate etching and relief printmaking but individuals will be able to complete a finished print in the class. If you have ever wanted to try your hand at art in general or printmaking specifically these classes are an easy way to give it a try. How it works: You go to Living Social and find the ad for Art Classes at the Phoenix Center or click here. You select the class and date and time that you want, then you purchase a voucher on Living Social. Then you call the Phoenix Center for the Arts to register for a specific Living Social class. If you have any problems, call Alissa at 602 254 3100. While you are enjoying one of my printmaking classes in April, you can also see my solo exhibition at the Phoenix Center Gallery! Such a bonus!!
