Warmest Greetings! How are you? It is cold here in Minnesota, but I am told Spring will eventually arrive! I am excited to share a few upcoming events with you from my studio here in St. Paul. 2015 looks to be an exciting year!
Someone Else’s Story
The Burnet Gallery at Le Méredien Chambers Hotel in Minneapolis is offering a group show that will be including several of my newest works. The paintings incorporate the poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay and will be shown along side fellow artists Sonja Peterson, Teo Nguyen and Tetsuya Yamada. If you are in the Twin Cities area, please join me for the opening on February 27 or visit the gallery during regular business hours. I would love to meet you there!
122 Conversations is a collaborative artist-led program involving Duluth and its 5 sister cities. I will be holding conversations via Skype or in-person with people of five countries and translating them into art pieces that speak to cross-cultural understanding and compassion. The project kicked off with interviews of citizens from Iraqi Kurdistan and Växjö, Sweden.The artworks will travel to Canada, Japan, Sweden, Russia and Iraqi Kurdistan between 2015 and 2017. The people from each city will add their responses as the show progresses toward its culminating venue at the Tweed Museum of Art. Follow the progress on the 122 Conversations website or on our Facebook page!
This coming April I am thrilled to have been invited to be a visiting artist at The Model in Sligo, Ireland! The Model is one of Ireland’s leading centers for contemporary art, hosting compelling art exhibitions by international and Irish artists. The Model is home to Sligo’s municipal art collection, The Niland Collection. I will be discussing my studio practice and my socially engaged process as part of their new vision, the Bureau of Radical Accessibility series.
