2014 has been an Artful year!
I have shown my work in five exhibitions this year!  And I am thrilled to be closing out the year by participating in this lovely little show. Constrained only by size...this promises to be a feast for the eyes!
December 6, 2014 - January 18, 2015
at the Target Gallery inside the Torpedo Factory in Old Town Alexandria.

  Kodak & Muse are a waxing for the past. These artworks reconstruct and combine camera findings and doll pieces to reflect a longing for the past that has somehow become intertwined with my present.
                                                    The Works photograph captures the remains of a thread dye warehouse in Philadelphia, PA. The warehouse is currently being repurposed to new life with artist studios and entrepreneurial spaces. You may recognize this from previous posts.
 Reception:  December 11th
6-8 pm
 with Juror comments at 7:00pm

Globe Dye Works!

 This past Friday I had the pleasure of taking my students to Philadelphia for a day trip! We went to the Globe Dye Works warehouse nestled in the industrial part of the city. We learned about the history of the building and the renewed vision for the space.
We spent the day meeting with artists, bakers, entrepreneurs, coffee roasters and ice cream makers!
Seeing the industrial spaces reconstructed into work areas and studios was inspiring!
We even found American painter John Moore in his studio working on a painting inspired by the warehouse itself!
It is truly where art meets industry. Fraught with creativity, collaboration and makers' visions this is an up and coming location not to be missed!
The best part was watching the students drink in all the information and document the surroundings.
**It was lovely to spend a day with students that I have had the pleasure of teaching for four years!
