I am honored to have been awarded Career Opportunty Grants from both the Oregon Arts Commission and The Ford Family Foundation, which will fund my 10 week residency in sculpture at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado! That is where you will find me October through December this year. I'm excited to have access to the wonderful facilities at ARAC and to enjoy the beauty of high mountain country as the season transitions from fall to winter.
Reiterations and Rifts, my first solo show at Butters Gallery, runs June 5 and runs through 29. If you are in Portland, please stop by June 5 or 6 for the openings.
Talented sculptor and blogger, Andrew Tirado featured my studio in his blog, A.R.T regard today. Check it out here. Besides writing about art, Andy profiles artists in some of his posts, and today's post was the result of a conversation we had about Knolling, an obscure topic he wrote about earlier. Check out that post too, and while you're at it, put his blog on your reading list.
Here is one of Andy's huge pieces in progress.
I'm excited to be teaching at Anderson Ranch August 5-9. Sign up for a fun and creative week in the Rockies! Tell your friends. I took a workshop there last summer and it was an amazing experience. Great instructors, interesting fellow students, tasty food. I highly recommend it. And in your off hours you can hike in the high altitudes of Snowmass. Although most people are so busy and inspired in their classes that they work long past class hours.
I'm excited to be taking Advanced Welding for Artists at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, Colorado this week. Looking forward to learning some new skills, re-igniting my creative spirit, and spending time with Jenene Nagy and Josh Smith. Jenene is the Artistic Director Of Painting, Drawing And Printmaking at Anderson Ranch. Should be a great week!
I'm showing at Butters Gallery! The show runs June 7-30 with an opening reception Thursday, June 7, 6-9pm. For more information on this group show featuring Deborah Gillis, Marlana Stoddard-Hayes, Vanessa Calvert, Katherine Levin-Lau and Jiro Yonezawa see the Butters gallery newsletter.
I am honored to be showing at Butters. It's a great gallery in Portland. My pieces are located next to beautiful paintings by Marlana Stoddard-Hayes who I showed with at Chehalem Cultural Center last year. And it's fun to be showing with Vanessa Calvert who makes sculptures I covet!
