Exhibition
A new hanging work will be exhibited at the Republic Plaza this Fall in the exhibit, Haiku - Poetry in Art in Denver, Colorado. The Republic Plaza has grand airy spaces that accentuate the delicacy of Izumi. Izumi is Japanese for spring or fountain. This hanging sculpture is formed of many handcarved paper and metal "droplets" each suspended in action, each poised to fill the stillness and quench a dry, parched land. Like the Japanese wind chime bells - furin - meant to signal any breath of wind in the quiet heat of summer, Izumi's droplets catch light and cast droplets of shadow across walls and floor portending visionary rain. Republic Plaza is located at 370 17th Street along the 16th Street walking mall, Mon-Fri 8 AM - 6 PM, Saturday 9 AM - 2 PM. For more information, please visit artsbrookfield.com. Curated by Jane Guthridge and Andra Archer.

Art Center Exhibition
Some places and people are truly special. When these two come together and coalesce to form an organization dedicated to learning and helping others, lives are touched. One such special organization is the guild. Guilds come in all shapes and sizes and are often dedicated to furthering art and skill. When I first moved to Colorado in 1999, I was blessed to become a part of the Handweaver's Guild of Boulder. For those of you who don't already know, I love textiles. I was trained at an early age in classical art: drawing, painting,and sculpture, but midway through college, I had a life changing event and discovered textiles. I switched my degree from drawing and painting to textile design with a specialty in jacquard and pattern design. Needless to say, my life since then continues to combine fine art and textile techniques. The guild in Boulder is large and filled with creative people who bring in nationally recognized speakers on all the fine crafts related to textiles. It was there that I first met John Marshall, my mentor in traditional katazome. And it was also with their help in the form of a scholarship that I first went to Japan. This coming winter, I've been invited to send work for their The Art of Fiber... Fifty Years of the Handweavers Guild of Boulder exhibition at The Dairy Center for the Arts in Boulder, Colorado. Many artists and craftspeople have been blessed by this substantial guild. I know that I am one of them.

Museum Exhibition
I've been invited to take part in a fascinating exhibit, Forming: The Synergy Between Basketry and Sculpture this summer and autumn at the Alden B. Dow Museum of the Midland Center for the Arts in Midland, MI. As the curator notes, "A selection of artists from across America inquistively open our eyes to new alternatives in basketry and fiber-based sculptural form. The craftsmanship is superb, the creativity and technical finesse is complex, while the vision is beyond today, infused with inspiration from long revered fiber traditions." On view at the same time will be three additional exhibits, which I can personally say I can't wait to see... Modern Twist: Contemporary Japanese Bamboo Art, Poetry in Print: Japanese Woodblock Prints from the Saginaw Art Museum, and Forging A New Japan: Japanese Woodblock Prints from the Sheldon and Heather Siegel Collection.

Art Center Exhibition
I've been invited to take part in Considering the Kylix: Contemporary Interpretations of a Classical Form at the Peters Valley Art Center: Sally D. Francisco Gallery, Layton, NJ. This exhibition intends to offer a portal into the state of fine craftsmanship, materials, and process today, demonstrating a rich fusion of technical skills and creativity where form, surface, and content are successfully integrated.

"Undone"
Thoughts on "Undone"... Much of my recent work, the Reveal Series, deals with life's potential. It nestles itself comfortably between the worlds of cultural and written language, using codes, symbols, and forms to express humanity's promise and capacity. As I approached the Considering the Kylix exhibition, I studied the cultural symbols and patterns of the ancient kylix and examined the customary use of this vessel. Traditionally used in ceremonies celebrating Dionysus, this drinking cup brought to mind ideas of excess and disorder. I considered how a good thing like celebration and wine could be overdone. And how one step down a path could, for some, be their undoing. Undone began its construction as a standard oval kylix form. Here, though, conceptually a walk down the path of excess and addiction leads to a dark place. The strip design of a Greek kylix is deconstructed. The rope carving - a traditional kylix pattern - is subverted here to symbolize how easily life's potential can unravel. The formal bands unwind. Together, the rope pattern and banding take on the appearance of a road spiraling out of control. In ancient times, the black of the traditional kylix was balanced by the warm tones of iron oxide. In Undone, the startling black and somber gray tones convey the serious gravity of the situation. It is a life unraveled - a life undone.

NYC Gallery Exhibition
For the next two months, cross-cultural, multi-genre, magical and/or visionary objects will be on display in Contained Excitement: Pleasures of the Void at the Cavin-Morris Gallery, 210 Eleventh Avenue, Suite 201, between 24th and 25th, New York, NY. The show focuses on the way artists control the sensual expectations of space in an object. The object is more than an attractive shape; it transgresses against expectations. The void is never really empty; it may contain mysterious objects or be the Mystery itself. In this observation is a secret of the soul of sensuality itself; the strategic withholding or timing of information in order to charge something with energy. Revelation is the artist's slave. Undergirding Contained Excitement: Pleasures of the Void is a fascination with the nexus points of Art and Design when craft is the tool of process that submits to more conceptual ideas. browngrotta arts has partnered with Cavin-Morris for Contained Excitement. The full press release may be accessed here.
