Additional July shows

Turns out I have work in two more shows this July. 4 pieces in 4 different galleries -  not too shabby! 

I have a new painting in the annual FRIDA SHOW at Studio 10 in Arthouse on R. This show will run through August 11th. 

And I also have a small collage  - and I mean small! 1.5 inch square small - in the MicroArtCollection - Part III at DaDas Art Gallery Boutique in East Sacramento. This part of the MicroArtCollection will be up through Aug 5th. 

So, you've got 4 weeks or so to check out 4 awesome Sacramento galleries. Ready... go! 


oh right, this also happened - I had a poem (I'm not a writer!!) published in Dime Show Review. I'm not sure how I feel about this.

Trendy jacket from the 80s (I hear they are back!) or how I'm getting some art out into the world this summer? 

Well, with the temperatures already hitting the triple digits here in northern California, I don't think I'll be needing a jacket, so I'll just participate in a couple gallery member shows over the summer months. I think that is a better fit for me. And the galleries are always air conditioned!

 

First up I will have a photographic print  - a gold toned kallitype self-portrait to be exact - at Viewpoint Gallery:

3rd Saturday Reception:

Saturday, Jul. 16, 2016 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

 

There are a couple more upcoming shows I plan on entering in the coming months. I'm hoping to get that damn pie out in the world! My Fiber Arts class is over, but I'm still thinking and working in that vein - needle, thread, and dye have firmly pushed the paints aside for now. I do have an collage workshop coming up though so I'll keep my glue stick handy. 

 

Woman in the Convex Mirror

The multi-talented Bethanie Humphreys invited me to participate in a show she is curating at the Sacramento Poetry Center - Woman in the Convex Mirror: Women's Self-Portraits.

The show opens next Sunday February 28th and runs through March 26th. The reception will be on 2nd Saturday March 12 from 5-8pm.  I will also be a part of the artist talk at the reception. It should be an interesting discussion of why we create and show works with ourselves as the subject. 

 


I also have paintings at Ambrosia at 621 on the Capitol Mall in Sacramento for the next 3 months! I've hung 13 paintings - several of my 'Visual Quest' mixed-media paintings, an encaustic painting, and 6 of my newest oil and cold wax paintings. 

The work will be up March, April, and May. For additional information or to purchase work, please contact dawnblanchfield@gmail.com or ccooperxx@gmail.com.
