5×7 Art Splurge and Social at the Arthouse

2011 5x7 Art Splurge The 5x7 annual fundraiser, art sale and exhibition benefiting the Arthouse at the Jones Center opens tomorrow night with the Art Splurge, where you will have your first chance to purchase artwork from among 1,000s of original 5×7-inch works of art by emerging and established contemporary artists. I will have two pieces in the show, part of a new series of small paintings.

Pictures from the Davis Gallery and the Blanton Museum, 12-2010

Photos from to the Davis Gallery to see the really awesome wood sculpture of Caprice Pierucci, and the Contemporary galleries at the Blanton, taken while my husband and I led my brother on a sightseeing tour of Austin.

Pictures from the People’s Gallery Exhibition

I was so thrilled to be selected for the 2011 People's Gallery Exhibition at the Austin City Hall. One of my paintings, "Luminous Future," was selected from among 1400 pieces entered by 325 local artists and arts organizations.

Emerging from a Black Hole

It feels like I am emerging from something like a black hole. For the past month, I have been bogged down with several things that have interfered with my creative artistic endeavors...I can't wait to get back to creating artwork in my studio, which (with any luck) is just about to happen.

People’s Gallery Exhibition Opening Tomorrow Night

Just a reminder that I had a painting selected from over a thousand submissions of paintings, sculptures, photographs, and more for the 2011 People's Gallery Exhibition. The opening is tomorrow night from 6-9pm at City Hall, and features over 100 artworks from Austin-area artists, galleries, museums, and art organizations displayed throughout the first three floors of City Hall.

Amidst the attention given to the sciences as how they can lead to the cure of all diseases and daily problems of mankind, I believe that the biggest breakthrough will be the realization that the arts, which are conventionally considered ‘useless,’ will be recognized as the whole reason why we ever try to live longer or live more prosperously.
