I have a busy week ahead of me with 2 art deliveries for shows not in Sacramento!Tomorrow I have to drop off my painting “Songs from the Void” at Blue Line Arts in Roseville for the 2015 Member’s Melody show. Roseville. So close! Even more exciting is that the gallery is including a “Mini Members” show in the children’s gallery at the same time. My 8 yo daughter, Erin, will have her latest painting “Sunset” on display! How kick ass is that?3rd Saturday Reception is July 18th 7-9pm. Come out and see both our paintings hanging in the same gallery. On Wednesday I have to deliver another piece, but this time I’m heading way out of town to Benecia in the SF Bay area. I am thrilled to have my collage “Side Effects” accepted in the “Fragments: the Art of Collage and Assemblage” show juried by Robert-Jean Ray. Opening Reception is Saturday, Aug 1st 7-9pm.95 artists! I’m sure it will be worth the drive.

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…

Hot Wax Runs Wild!
I am so excited to have 2 of my encaustic paintings in this show put on by Sierra Wax Artists. Considering I am relatively new to working with this medium, what an honor to have my work selected by Juror Sara Post! I love working in encaustics and am still scratching the surface of what I can and can’t do with wax. Encaustics as a medium can produce such diverse works, I hope you will come out to Lincoln and see all the wonderful pieces created by local wax artists.
