After a long (very long...) absence, I'm back to the blogging population. My studio has been working in overdrive the past few months: workshops, an artist residency in a local school, a public art project completed, a couple group shows, and one feature show to boot. I'm excited to share all of these happenings with you, my faithful readers (I thank those who check this site often, and apologize for the lack of entries recently).
Below are some images from a new show at Lark and Key Gallery, in Charlotte, featuring my work and beautiful paintings by Angie Renfro. They are a reflection of my life as a mom, as well as my changing body during my second pregnancy (yes, Guthrie is going to be a big brother soon!). Even though the opening has already passed, the show remains up through September. If you're in Charlotte, in the NODA area, be sure to stop by and take a look!The "marquee" piece of the show (at least in my opinion) is this train that was inspired by a painting that hangs above his bed in Guthrie's room, created by one of my favorite artists, Duy Huynh. I haven't measured my train, but I think it's around 3.5 to 4 feet wide in 3 sections that can be shown separately or together. It was a labor of love- a great piece to indulge myself in painstaking detail. Yum!
Preggy vases- bulging bellies and hips. Hummm, an uncanny resemblance to my body right now!
Train detail- the wheels do turn, but not too well. Definitely not a toy!
I'm happy to be back and will post soon about some other recent projects! Thanks for reading.
