August 18 - October 15, 2018
I've been invited to participate in Tea Collaborative - Connecting Cultures, an exhibit at the Mary C. Daly RSM Art Gallery at Mercy By The Sea Retreat & Conference Center in Madison, CT. The aim of this collaborative exhibition organized by Ann Grasso is to foster cultural awareness and discussion of the similarities we share as humans. The work I submitted, Karesansui 1, is a moku hanga (Japanese woodblock) print, handcarved and printed with mineral pigments. Karesansui are the dry gravel gardens of Japan. These gardens include linear patterns of raked gravel representing water. It is the peaceful quality of these gardens that has always linked them in my mind to the care and joy of taking tea, whether with friends or for contemplative reflection.

I've been invited to be a part of Blue/Green: color/code/context, an exhibit this spring at browngrotta arts in Wilton, CT. Artists were asked to provide work that explores these colors, literally or symbolically. The colors evoke a myriad of connotations. There was ground for those interested in exploring color as a mood, a musical genre, naivete, fertility, greed, rebirth or an affinity for nature. My sculpture "Channel" presses for a connection to nature. It represents an unbroken chain of quality, natural habitat channeling birds along their migratory route. This group exhibition of artists from 15 different countries participating in Blue/Green: color/code/context interprets these colors and what they symbolize in vastly different ways... as paintings, sculpture and tapestry. A catalog will be available.

Art Center Exhibition
I feel very honored to be included as one of three U.S. artists in the exhibition, Contemporary Art Influenced by Korea & Japan: An Unexpected Approach. From the press release: "This major international exhibition presents over 60 works by 23 artists from Japan, Korea, and the United States. The artists in this exhibit have a close relationship to a traditional, culturally associated craft aesthetic, manifested in a contemporary manner. They have chosen conventionally Asian materials and/or techniques (dyes, papers, gold leaf, persimmon tannin, katagami) used in both time-honored and unconventional ways. For example...Jennifer Linssen's innovative sculptures of katagami." Hosted by the Greenwich Arts Council, the exhibit is at the Bendheim Gallery in Greenwich, CT, and it is curated by browngrotta arts, Wilton, CT. More of the press release may be read here:
