It’s almost 2019! As we look forward to the new year, I’ve been reflecting on the past year and I’d like to THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your support. Here are some of the things that your support helped make possible:
Last winter the Happenings CLT blog featured me as a “Carolina Art Crush.”
I won an Arts Council of Winston Salem and Forsyth County Duke Energy Regional Artist Grant to purchase a professional photography and video setup. I discussed the importance of grants like this for the arts community with writer Michael Solender for the Duke Energy Illumination blog.
In the spring I was in a three-person show at Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art in Charlotte, and the gallery subsequently asked me to join the roster of artists they represent.
At Elder Gallery, I gave a lecture on abstraction, my painting process, inspiration, life as an artist, and why making art matters. You can watch the lecture here.
In autumn I had a solo show in the Elberson Fine Arts Center at Salem College in Winston Salem. Virtually walk through the exhibit here.
The College of William & Mary in VA, my alma mater, invited me to give a talk during the “100 Years of Women” anniversary while my painting Greenway Triptych was exhibited there.
And like last year, thanks to my collectors who bought artwork, I was able to donate 5% of all my sales to Yadkin Riverkeeper, a local non-profit that “seeks to respect, protect and improve the Yadkin Pee Dee River Basin through education, advocacy and action.”
Stay tuned for what’s happening in 2019. I’m hitting the ground running with two shows at the start of the year and I’m building a mountain in March at Elder Gallery… In September, I’ll have my first museum show at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art!
Thank you so much for your continued support along my journey.
