Studio Improvements

My boyfriend (artist Tony Csavas) and I have shared a studio for years. It’s the second bedroom in our apartment. It has worked out well, but our paintings keep getting larger and our inventory continues to grow. In an effort to create more space in the studio we built a new wall, installed new lights, removed non-studio furniture (the futon – finally!), obtained a flat file and put everything on wheels!

Something in Particular

I’m very excited to have been included in this exhibition, entitled Something in Particular, on view in Atlanta  April 27 – May 26, 2013. I have seven of my new screen prints on view.

 

10 Artists / 10 Southern Towns / 10 Series of Works.

The South is known for its tumultuous history, its inviting landscapes, and its vast array of characters. After five weeks on the road traveling to 10 states across the Southeast, the exhibition curators discovered a wide range of artists hard at work. From Asheville to Memphis, New Orleans and beyond, a rich tapestry of artist are working at the highest level of conceptual art practice. Yet, they remain overlooked as a creative force, nationally and abroad. Something in Particular hopes to bring attention to the need for both recognition and funding of the arts in the South.

ARTFIELDS ARTWORK DROP-OFF

Today, I brought over 40 works of art (created by wonderfully talented Charleston artists) to Lake City, SC for Artfields! ArtFields is a first-of-its-kind, Epic Southern Artfest Competition and Celebration to be held in the historic community. The 10-day event (taking place April 19 -27) will feature over 400 visual artworks, live music, dancing, delicious Southern foods, and cash prizes totaling $100,000 that will be awarded to winning artists.

Thank you Redux Contemporary Art Center for being a drop-off location for Charleston artists to deliver their artwork! Special shout-out to Stacy Huggins, Beckie Dobbs and Joshua Breland.

Thank you Tony Csavas for helping to load up the truck (and drive the truck)!

Thank you Erin Glaze Nathanson and Valerie Hammond for showing the way on a golf cart and helping to deliver each artwork to the appropriate venue!!!

My love of organizing, sorting and problem solving was definitely fulfilled today!

 

Kaleidoscope Patchwork Quilt #4

To date, I have made three paintings based on the Kaleidoscope Patchwork Quilt (#1-3 pictured above) and it is probably my favorite series. Therefore, I decided to make a larger painting (pictured below)! I’m only a couple weeks into the painting, but the photographs below document the process so far. Throughout the painting, I’ve sprinkled objects that are currently important to me or have some significance.

LAVO frame

I moved to Charleston, SC from Boston, MA about five years ago. Right away, I visited Artizom Frame Gallery on East Bay and fell in love with their LAVO frame. It was perfectly gaudy and appropriate in my new Southern home. Finally, I’ve had the right pieces to be framed in this stock!
