The Power of She: A Permanent Collection Exhibition
My work is included in this great exhibit... It’s the year 2020, and the Franklin G. Burroughs - Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum is celebrating women and all of their accomplishments, particularly in the arts. The Power of She is an exhibition of nearly 40 works of art from the Museum’s permanent collection featuring work created by, thematically representative of, and/or commemorating women, femininity and girl power. Both visually stunning and technically impressive, this body of work is a wonderful way to experience the beauty and power of the collective “SHE.”

Hand in Hand exhibit
A special exhibition through Kirsten Muenster Projects presents works from leading national and international artists working in wood, paper, and metal. Each of these artists shares a love of the natural world and their materials - pieces are hand carved, cut, bent, raised, chased, formed, sandblasted, burned, weathered, rusted, patinated, and painted.
Intimate creative dialogue develops between artists and their material over the years. It's a partnership, working hand in hand, the resulting pieces are in essence a conversation between the two, human-made and nature-made.
Artists include David Barnhill, Todd Hoyer, David Huang, Richard Kennedy, Jennifer Falck Linssen, Alain Mailland, Pascal Oudet, Norm Sartorious, Betty Scarpino, Hayley Smith, Hans Weissflog.

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.
