Two New Prints at the Interchurch Center

The Nature of Things

These two images, made in 2006, will be in a show entitled The Nature of Things presented by the National Association of Women Artists at the Interchurch Center in New York from October 15, – November 17, 2008. The Interchurch Center is located at 475 Riverside Drive (at 120th St.) There will be an Artists Reception on Wednesday October 15th from 4 to 7 p.m. For further information and directions visit www.interchurch-center.org or call 212 870 2200.

Both Leaf Float and October Dusk really are about the nature of things. In this case the things are real leaves, which I used to make the monotypes for each image. Leaf Float is actually made from 2 separate prints put together into a single image. Both pieces have been hand colored using different materials, acrylic paint and colored pencil in Leaf Float and pastel and colored pencil in October Dusk.

This summer I had a few pieces from my more recent Garden of Eden series in a show called All About Eve at the Sirens Song Gallery in Greenport, N.Y. I’m planning to have an Open Studio exhibit of my work here in Long Island City in the spring of 2009. I’m busy at work in my studio on some new pieces having to do with birds, hills and nests. In this current financial turmoil the capacity of birds to fly away or to retreat to their next is certainly to be envied!
