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!
To see a full list of available works, please send an email and I’ll connect you with the Proprietors team. They are also responsive via their Instagram profile. Pieces range from $70 to $900, inclusive of wooden frames shown.
“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.
PaperWorks 2021: Layers of Time July 1–25, 2021 Hours: Thursdays–Sundays, 12:30-5:30pm Upstream Gallery 8 Main Street, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY 10706
Here are the details for three chances to see my work in group shows this month – one in-person in NYC, and two virtual.
Things to Fall In Love With was the earliest drawing of these three pieces, and the other two were created in 2020. You can see how the series of drawings has evolved to include more colors and layers, and even the painting seems cohesive with this body of work. Sometimes my painting and drawing processes feel almost too distinct, but here things seem to hold together.
Building on pieces like the ones below, I have been doing more experimenting lately with layering painting and drawing elements together. Acrylic paintings over colored pencil grounds, ordering new paint markers, as well as making some paintings on found patterned paper rather than a background that is hand rendered.
Earlier this week, I posted some small sketches as an end of year studio sale and fundraiser for Bed-Stuy Strong and ISCP and wanted to share a little more about my connection to these two groups.
Bed-Stuy Strong is a neighborhood mutual aid network I have participated in since March thanks to a flyer posted outside a subway station. I’ve been donating, making some deliveries, and, lately, making calls to connect neighbors with groceries thanks to Bed-Stuy Strong’s organizers over the past eight months of the coronavirus crisis. I’m consistently amazed and moved by the love and support of my neighbors in this community.
ISCP (International Studio & Curatorial Program) is an arts org in Brooklyn which provides residencies for artists and curators from around the world as well as hosting exhibitions and public programs. It’s what brought me to New York in 2016 for a summer internship after finishing my BFA! Since then, I’ve stayed connected through volunteering at events and attending open studio nights.
To keep it simple everything is listed for $30 ($20 donated per sketch). Let me know if you have questions, or click here to read more. My big (!) goal is to raise $300 for each organization by the end of the year, and I’ll continue adding some more sketches to the sale page.
My painting Untitled (Abstraction 5 of 7) is included in “Wild Lands”, curated by Gina Tuzzi. She writes, “Finding our place in the balance is one hell of a dance.” This online exhibition will be live through December 6, 2020.
For the second year in a row, I’m happy to have a piece in benefit art exhibition for the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts. My painting Return is included in this auction (with online bidding this year) from October 24-30. Proceeds support participating artists (like me!) as well as the Bemis Center’s programs.
You can view the exhibition / auction on the Bemis Center website. > bemiscenter.org/benefit (for direct link to my piece, click on the painting below. currently available at the “buy it now” price until bidding begins on the 24th.)
