Five of my 16×20 nude acrylic paintings have been selected for two exhibitions in Astoria, OR in March. One of them, Jenny x2-Q9, will be displayed in a frame shop during the “Nudes Downtown” event that runs concurrently with the Au Naturel juried show at Clatsop Community College. (My 36×36 painting Big Sarah with Graffiti #2 was accepted for the Au Naturel show.) The other four paintings will be part of the VDAY (“V” as in Vagina Monologues!) events at Clatsop College Performing Art Center.
I arrived at the SOMAR opening for the “Naked Ladies” exhibit, and was delighted to see my “Two Zaftig Rachels” hanging in an excellent spot. Femily and Christine from Femme Cartel were very enthusiastic about my work, and introduced me to a number of patrons who also showered the painting (and me) with praise.
The selection committee at the Pacific Grove (CA) Art Center has accepted my submission and granted me a solo show in one of their galleries. The dates are May 31 to July 11, 2013
If you can get to Mill Valley, CA this Saturday, come to the Depot Plaza and watch me (along with about 30 other artists) create a painting in four hours. Artists begin work at 10:30 am and must be finished by 2:30. The public gets to vote on their favorites, and awards are given in 3 categories.
In 2010 my painting sold on the spot.
