MEET THE ARTISTS RECEPTION!
September 19th (4 PM - )
FREE TO PUBLIC / REFRESHMENTS!
”Honor the space between no longer and not yet.”
My dear friend and talented artist artist, Richard Mittelstadt will join me in this special exhibit (Cube Gallery) . Having met Richard (Rick) about 10 years ago, I knew he was a one-of-a-kind-special-sort-of-person...always with a generous encouraging word to share and lots of creative wisdom to offer.
I really enjoyed bumping into him at various art exhibits and chatting with him. We would often share with mutual enthusiasm our excitement or frustration of any given project occupying our attention. More often than not, Rick was helping me to problem solve and would describe how the sightees would accomplish something I was hoping to achieve. If Rick was stuck, I would challenge him to stop looking at it so much and to trust his process, feel his way thru. I think it was our shared curiosities that pushed us both to stretch the boundaries of our comfortablities.
I can only speak for myself, but thru our numerous dialogues I moved beyond painting with just my fingertips and experimented with a paint brush, pallet knife and make shift found items. I also tried new products and processes I heard Rick mention in the course of our many conversations, albeit, not as the manufacture intended, but then again...is there really a ‘right way’?
I so hope visitors will enjoy and appreciate these creative works inspired and or derived by our conversations and reflect there is always
more than one interpretation.

It has been my privilege to hear the stories of other veterans and paint out images of the American flags that reflect those shares.
Look for a special event announcement honoring veterans.

I honestly don’t know what I was thinking when I filled the 2019 calendar with an exhibit every 6-8 weeks!
2020 brings a new year and will be the introduction to my new vision (pun intended) of how my art will be exhibited and experienced!
20/20 is the term widely used to measure visual acuity...the year 2020 will be a great year for me to widely expose a new way of ‘seeing’ things.
Details will be provided in the coming weeks!
