The current show at ARC Gallery, FourSquared, will have a closing reception on Saturday, September 18th from 10am to 3pm. There will be an Artist's Panel from 1pm to 2pm. My studio will be open as well. The opening reception, on Friday, August 27, was intense--lots of people, lots of family, lots of art talk. The first sale of work from my 5 piece "Illusion of Choice" series was completed that evening. Yes, Do Supermodels Dream of Anorexic Sheep?, at left, was the first to leave home, but her sisters, a sample of which can be seen at right and below, are still in my studio, waiting to be seen, and perhaps adopted, at Open Studios in October. Although I had a somewhat conflicted time producing the "Illusion of Choice" suite of works, I kind of love them now, as they are on their way out into the world. Both studio space and mental space are opened up and I am enjoying focusing on my new series, "Seen and Unseen", which will include mixed media paintings, artists' books and assemblage.
On a final note, another really good thing happened at the FourSquared opening. I was able to buy the fabulous Sabertoothed Rabbit, below, by the fabulous saberbrushed painter, Sandy Yagi. I have admired her work for many years and I can't wait to bring this angry bunny home. Come and see the rest of Maestra Yagi's wonderful hybrids while you have the chance, along side the other fascinating work in the show.
