Installation almost complete! My husband and I put the kids on the bus, took the dog for a walk and took my 27 or so pcs. of art to the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center on a beautiful Fall day. I will be showing in the Flashlight Gallery during the month of October with an opening reception on October 5th from 5-8 pm.
I took the day off from my “day job” where we have been very busy getting ready for three new exhibitions opening the same night as mine. If I stop to think about it, I am very blessed to be surrounded by art and the pursuit of promoting it to others both at work and in my own life.
This show, “The Spaces in Between”, is a mix of paintings and drawings. The bulk were completed in 2012 but I added paintings from past years that complement this idea. The idea being the importance of negative space and how alluring it can be. I love my objects but it is the spaces they create, the tension and drama that exists between them that catches my attention.
I am hoping to sell quite a few items, not only for the obvious reasons: to pay some bills, get my name out there, attract new patrons but because it allows me to move on. Sometimes that just means to make more art but now I want it to be about permission to try something new and evolve. In the meantime, please stop by and take a look. I’d love feedback on what you liked and even what you didn’t!
