Three Pieces in UT Tyler Exhibition

Earlier this month, I submitted three pieces for the 2021 Virtual Juried College Exhibition at UT Tyler.  They accepted submissions from college students throughout Texas … and they accepted all three of my submissions.  The online show is available through February 28th.  My pieces that were submitted are …

2021 TAC Small Works Show

“Bigger is Better” isn’t always true, especially when it comes to being included in the Texas Artists Coalition Members Small Works Exhibit. Space in the Gallery at Fort Worth Community Arts Center is limited and, by doing a Small Works Exhibit, more artists and works are able to be shown.

I’m thrilled that my piece … “Now You See Me … ” was chosen for this show. From a distance, it looks like a red/white design, created by an underglaze transfer. Up close AND at the right angle, viewers can see a silhouette of a cat.  It was hard to photograph this piece so that the cat was partially visible.

The Exhibit runs from March 5th through April 10th at 1300 Gendy Street in Fort Worth, Texas.

Three Pieces at The Artist’s Circle Online Gallery

In December 2020, three of my pieces were accepted into The Artist’s Circle Online Gallery. The topic for the exhibition is Religion. While my pieces don’t represent traditional Christian themes, they do represent religious icons in other cultures.

“She’s Not Barbie” in Clay Houston Virtual Show — UPDATE

My piece “She’s Not Barbie” has been included in the ClayHouston Virtual Membership Show.

This piece was created to celebrate the strength of women and girls. Materials used include stoneware clay (Laguna Grande), colored slip, underglaze, and the head of a doll. The basic form is a cube with a support tube in the middle. After the form was built, it was covered with colored slip; the slip was built up in places to form a “path.” Sgraffito technique was used to add words related to the theme, as well as grid lines. After a bisque firing, the words and grid were coated with a clear glaze, and the piece was fired again. Finally a doll head was glued to the top of the support tube.

It’s approximately 13″ H x 6″ W x 6″ D

UPDATE … May 28, 2021 … Felt that the name of this piece didn’t really convey my thoughts/inspiration. So, it’s been renamed. Now called: “Not Just A Pretty Face”.

Art Room’s “Small Works Show”

Two of my pieces were selected for Art Room’s “Small Works Show” at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center.

The Center, located at 1300 Gendy Street (off Lancaster near University), is open Monday – Saturday from 9 am – 5 pm. Masks are required.  The show will run through Saturday, December 12th.

“Blue Girl” is a small piece, designed to hang on the wall (or stand on a table). “Chemo Brain” is based on my experience during and after chemo, 15 years ago.

 

2020 State Fair of Texas – Results are In!

Earlier this year, it appeared that the State Fair of Texas would be a “no go” due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  But, thanks to the ingenuity of the organizers, the State Fair has been modified to allow modified participation.   Modified means:  Drive Thru State Fair, Special On-Line Competitions, Video Tours and limited participation in Creative Arts Competitions.   So … I put on my mask and took five pieces down to the Fair last month.  This morning the results were announced … TADA!!

Here are my entries … two Blue, two Red, one White!

Honored to be part of ART214 in Dallas

My piece “Chemo Brain” has been juried into ART214 in Dallas.

It will be on display at the South Dallas Cultural Center (3400 S Fitzhugh Ave, Dallas, TX 75210) from April 4 through May 30th.

This year, the ART214 committee received more than 1000 submissions from artists across North Texas. The chosen artists’ work will be displayed at various venues across Dallas. Check out specific information for each venue and the artists chosen.

UPDATE, March 22:  Due to the coronavirus quarantine in Dallas, all ART214 events have been cancelled.  This piece will stay in my closet gallery for now and, perhaps, be displayed later this year or in another juried show.
