PAINTER / PRINTMAKER / POET

UPDATES

UPDATE: Publications, Exhibitions, &c.

Ello friends :)

It's been a little while since I've done a blog post, so I figured I was due for one!

I've been busy in the studio, toying with new geometries in my work, and exploring new themes & ideas. I've also been working on a small portrait as a surprise gift to a friend & colleague that I will post here after I present them with it! I've also made some small strides in getting my basement darkroom ready to use (haha, yes, it's still not done!).

The issue of Studio Visit Magazine that I was selected to be in is looking like it will be published sometime this Spring or Summer, and I've also just had a piece accepted into Ayris: Creative Arts Journal (published by the New Hampshire Institute of Art). I had a selection of poems considered as finalists for publication in Epiphany Magazine, but I haven't heard from them in a few weeks, so I'm guessing they've gone another route. 

I've also had work accepted into two different juried, regional exhibits. I'll have two pieces at the Library Arts Center in Newport, NH, and another piece at the Newburyport Art Association in Newburyport, MA. More information about these shows and their openings can be found on the EVENTS page of my website. 

In addition to the two pieces chosen to hang in the 2016 Juried Regional Show at the Library Arts Center, I was also one of eight artists chosen to have a larger body of work hang in their Selections 2017 exhibition next February, but more info on that in the months to come!

In the meantime, here's a shitty cellphone pic of what I'm working on right now!!

Now I have to run off to Home Depot and buy some wood to build a frame bc my panel construction for one of my accepted pieces is SUPER SHODDY. Wish me luck; I'm a really rotten carpenter *w*
