BNSA at the Crocker Art Museum!

I am thrilled to be participating in the annual Big Names, Small Art  auction at the Crocker Art Museum again this year! 

I have again donated a small painting for the auction. This year it is "Heart Sutra" which is encaustic on a 9"x12" cradled wood panel. I really love how this piece turned out and hope it brings in a lot of money for the museum. 

The auction is Thursday, May 21, 2015 from 5:00-9:00pm.  It is always a fun evening with great art, music, food and drinks. Buy your tickets at and I'll see you there!

The Whole Ball of Wax

The Sierra Wax Artists group will be holding a member show next month at Arthouse on R. I will have at least one piece in the show, hopefully two. 

It is going to be a really strong show! So many beautiful pieces - encaustic paintings, monotypes, cold wax paintings - something for everyone. Hope to see you there!

I will be participating in another group show at Arthouse in June. "Collage - Invitational Group Exhibit". In the meantime, I need to start thinking about my submissions for the upcoming Crocker Art Museum Art Auctions and the California State Fair Fine Art Exhibition. 

Unhinged for the new year!

I have been asked to participate in a 'works on paper' show at BodyTribe next month. I've spent the last semester working on several series of monotypes in both ink and encaustic on rice and mulberry papers, so am thrilled to have a chance to share some of them. Since all the pieces will be hung without mats or frames, I've decided to show my latest trace monotypes. They are quirky and fun and perfect for this type of display. So come on out next 2nd Saturday, Jan 10th, for the "UNHINGED" Art Show and see the work of some of Sacramento's favorite artists! The show runs through Feb 7, 2015. 

And the next Saturday, Jan 17th, is the 3rd Saturday reception at Blue Line Arts in Roseville for the Hallberg Merit Award Exhibition! The 4 award winners will each have a small selection of their exhibit pieces on display from Jan 9 - Feb 7, 2015. The 3rd Saturday Art Walk reception runs 6:00-9:00pm.  

If you don't want to want until the new year to see some of my work, you still have time to catch the Twelve: Small Wonders show at Viewpoint Photographic Art Gallery! Show is up through Jan 3, 15. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I can't wait for what 2015 will bring!
