Been working on a new series using asemic writing. I’m loving the fluidity of this mark making, I started off doing abstract painting and wanted to translate that to printmaking methods. This is part of my new series titled “Calligraphy Dreams”. This piece is Calligraphy Dreams No 4

Opening Reception is First Friday October 6, 5-8pm. We will have gallery hours each Saturday in October 1-4pm with printmaking demos. Hope you can stop by.  It’s always fun for us printmakers to see what other artists are doing and watching them do it.

The late Joe Cardella’s ARTLIFE Foundation has again mounted a MailArt Exhibit. I happily submitted a print to the exhibit which is on view at two locations in Downtown Ventura, CA; NAMBA Performing Arts Space, 47 S. Oak Street and around the corner at 365 E. Main Street, a vacant storefront. Additionally you can see the exhibition posted online at their website. https://artlifefoundation.org

The very first Art of the Book exhibit curated by Inés Monguió was juried by Joe. I was pleased to have two of my pieces accepted. I will always remember Joe as the force for the arts that he was and still remains in our hearts. RIP Joe xo
