Art Exhibition

Well the first quarter of the year is almost over and this is my first post for 2015! It's been such a busy year so far which is a good thing! But my big news here is that I have three of my collage paintings in an exhibition at the Rogue Gallery and Art Center in Medford, OR. I submitted three pieces for their new Members Gallery exhibition and all three were accepted. The opening reception is tonight and I'm really excited. Here are the three pieces that are on exhibit.

La Ligne d'Horizon, approx 11" x 11"
23" x 23.5" framed and matted $625

Under Construction, approx. 11" x 10"
23" x 23" framed and matted $625


Wanderlust, approx. 11" x 10"
23" x 23" framed and matted $625

These are all from a series I worked on while in the Lot Valley in Southern France. I would go to the vide greniers (French version of a garage sale) in the surrounding villages and find all sorts of wonderful old pamphlets, maps, books, papers, etc. I added scraps from these pieces to the collage papers I made, my collection of stamps and other papers I've been collecting over the years and let each one reveal it's own story as I added paint, texture and pattern. Each piece has it's own special history created from the assembled papers in this beautiful region in France.

Feeling very grateful for this opportunity!
