I am delighted to be a guest instructor at Studio Escalier this summer. Join me in a studio that once belonged to Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, in Montmartre (Paris). We will be going deep into the study of color, through both painting practice and art historical lectures. On weekends and evenings you can wander the museums of Paris, reflecting on some of the world's greatest art and contemplating how it reflects the principles we will discuss in class! This is a rare opportunity, and I am delighted to have the chance to paint in this special place. All skill levels (even total beginners) are welcome. See the Studio Escalier website for details.
As a Graduate Curatorial Assistant at the Henry Art Gallery, I had the privilege to research and co-write extended labels for this exhibition, with the guidance of the brilliant Nina Bozicnik. This is certainly a show worth seeing, and the breadth and depth of the selections on view is remarkable. I'd urge you to go for the wonderful Richard Long piece alone! But there are so many gems in this show, including work that Allan Sekula made here in Seattle, and a very early piece by Miguel Calderón. You can catch it at the Henry from now until March 25, 2018. For more information, see the Henry's website at this link.
I am so happy to announce that Coley Mixan and I have a collaborative poster series that will be going up in Vancouver Canada, as part of the Costal City Public Art Platform. From August 8th through September 11th, our posters will be hanging in transit shelters around the city of Vancouver. If you are in town, check them out! If not, here is the website for the Costal Cities Platform, 2016.
In tandem with ArtPrize, Grand Rapids Art Museum is hosting an exhibition with the theme Nature/Nurture. I'm so pleased that my painting, Karma Dahlia II, will be part of this great show! For more info, and to see images of the work in the show, see the GRAM website.
