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.

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

Sullivan Goss Exhibit Under 100 Grand 2020

December 1st, 2020 – 5:22 pm
Filed as: Shows

I am beyond thrilled to have once again been selected to participate in this exhibit with so many talented artists. This print titled “Life” is a polymer intaglio etching inked with a beautiful oil based gold ink onto a hand coated cyanotype.

This piece was inspired by my trip to Egypt last December and January. A trip I had been wanting to make since a social studies class in the 9th grade! It truly was a trip of a life time.

As you can imagine I took a zillion photos that I am currently working with to create an Egyptian inspired series of original prints on the etching press. Stay tuned!

Unfortunately the very festive reception will not be able to take place this year, however, the exhibit is online and the gallery is open. Masks are required with 6 people in the gallery at a time.  If you’re in the area I strongly suggest you make an in person visit, it’s a beautiful large gallery.
