I will have recent paintings up in my new studio, as well as my annual painting raffle. Everyone who comes by will be entered to win a painting! (I will announce the painting to be raffled, here on my website, in early September)
This arrangement of Swamp Shimmer is in the traveling show SEEP, now up at the Woskob Gallery at Penn State. The exhibition runs August 24 - September 30, 2017.
Opening reception: Thursday August 24, 2017 | 5 – 7 PM
Micaela Amateau Amato, Caetlynn Booth, Rob Carter, Ken Fandell, Bonnie Levinthal, Bethany Johnson, Giulia Piera Livi, Patrick McDonough, John Peña, Joseph Smolinski, and Jenna Spevack
SEEP presents the work of 11 contemporary artists who use water as medium, subject matter, or both. Each artist approaches water from a different angle, whether as a tool for art-making, a springboard for exploring issues of resource scarcity, or as a metaphor for unknowable terrain.
Last weekend, I installed a commissioned painting that I completed this year. The image comes from a study that I did back in 2012 while as an artist in residence at the Vermont Studio Center. It was a lot of fun to revisit this subject on a larger scale in oil paint!
