For those of you who are keeping track, I've finished 5 new linocut editions (all of at least 5 colors) since the first of the year! Wahoo! I'm a little afraid to slow down... Must. Keep. Moving.... or I might come to a full stop.
But, as always, a few other things are coming in to the mix-- an interp sign project for one, and exhibition prep for another. There are two really exciting exhibitions coming up, check this out:
"33 Ideas" at the Denver International Airport
March 13 - June 13, 2010
The artists, writers, thinkers, and musicians who have been part of the Colorado Art Ranch experience investigate land and social issues in an exhibit titled 33 IDEAS. An artistic and literary exploration of contemporary topics, this exhibit is intended to create dialogue about a variety of issues and inspire new ways of thinking. My display case will be all about field sketching! Watch for "Witness/Testify: Illustrated Journals as Record and Testament" as you head over the Skyway to Concourse A.
"Drawing on Nature" at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science
Albuquerque, New Mexico
June 11 - September 12, 2010
Another group exhibition, this time featuring the nature journals of the women of Journal-keepers. This informal group of artists, naturalists, and writers from across the United States has been gathering annually for more than a decade. Each year we meet in Someplace Wonderful (remember my Zion National Park trip in October?) and spend a few days reveling in our surroundings and the companionship of our mutual journal-filling compulsion. "Drawing on Nature" will exhibit 60 (or more?) of our personal journals. The opening is tentatively scheduled for June 12, when many of us will be in Albuquerque for our annual gathering. Great fun!
I've got a few entries out for other juried shows this year, and of course I'll post the information for those as soon as I know my fate... errr.... results. Thanks to a great heads-up by Katherine Tyrrell at Making a Mark, I'm taking advantage of Blogger's new "pages" feature. So far I've added permanent "Workshop" and "Exhibition" pages to Brush and Baren, so you'll always be able to find the latest information. Nifty, eh?
