For the third year in a row, one of my artworks was included in the Bemis Center’s annual benefit auction. It’s always a pleasure to see my work in its new home – and what a lovely setting this one ended up in, with a lively green houseplant to keep it company!
This drawing is one of a series of my meditation drawings made about a year ago, in the first autumn of the pandemic – back home to New York, numbers rising again, the uncertainties of winter lying ahead. After time away from my studio, and away from the normal routines of life, I returned with a sense of urgency to these drawings – some in ink, some (like this one) in colored pencil. Looking at them now reminds me of feeling a bit desperate to get marks onto paper. The layered lines remind me of the warp and weft of the weaving made by my grandmother that hangs on the wall of our apartment, and of the way you can obscure a line of text best by writing something else right on top of it.
Proprietors is a woman-run, collective shop featuring vintage apparel and handmade goods in Hudson, NY. I’m pleased to share that as their current artist in residence, a curated selection of my recent drawings, paintings, and collages are on display and available for purchase through mid-October. These pieces fit beautifully into such a stylish space – all the way down to coordinating with the wooden floor that is painted pink!

“Layers of Time” opens today at Upstream Gallery, and will remain on view through July 25. Three of my pieces are part of the show, including the drawing pictured here. The exhibition title feels particularly apt, not just to my work, but to the way we’ve been moving through the past year and a half… (What is time?!)
Hastings-on-Hudson is a quick train ride or drive out of the city if you’re in New York and looking for an excursion up the Hudson Valley. I took advantage of my drive up to drop off the artwork by hiking at Blauvelt State Park that afternoon as well; it was refreshing to be surrounded by so much green! Upstream Gallery is an artist-run space; I met a couple of the members and they were very friendly and welcoming.
