I’m excited to say that this painting was accepted for the upcoming RED exhibit at the Raymond James Stutz Gallery in Indianapolis. This my first juried exhibit, and my third exhibit at the Stutz Gallery in downtown Indianapolis. It will be for sale after the exhibit. If you’re in the area, come by on Friday, February 3rd. The address is 212 W. 10th St., Indianapolis IN 46202.
In keeping with my resolution to really focus on my art this year, I’ve tried a new approach to a painting, and I’m experimenting with glazing. I’m probably not doing it right, but I think it’s something that requires practice. I also signed up for a teaching course on the business side of being a professional artist. I’m hoping the investment is worthwhile and can get me more exposure, and of course, more sales. I’m hoping to have at least one of these three paintings in the Stutz exhibit for February, and I’ll have some of my art at Sacred Roots Midwifery and Birth Center for the next few months. Wish me luck.
I’ll keep you posted!
I was honored to be included in this event – a storytelling variety show. Among the other storytellers were a comedian; a singer; a Guerilla Girl; a flutist. This is a picture of me telling the story of Hurricane Katrina from the eyes of a native New Orleanian, and sharing my paintings, The Katrina Trilogy
This event, on Sunday October 16 at 7:30 pm, will be its second annual occurrence. This unique event will take place at Theater on the Square, 627 Massachusetts Ave., downtown Indianapolis. I will be showing my Katrina Trilogy and telling the story of Katrina from my perspective as a native New Orleanian and a clinical social worker living and working with chronically mentally ill adults at the time of Hurricane Katrina, August 29, 2005. I will talk about how the tragedy still affected me 10 years later, and led to the first step in my career as a professional artist.
