She needs a round, and not like she used to serve (July 21, 2019)
I am very excited to announce an exhibition of my work, Every thing is not all right, at the O’Sullivan Art Gallery at Regis University in Denver, CO. The exhibition opens on March 7, 2022, and continues through April 7, 2022.
Every thing is not all right is a selection of 38 works from the first four years of the View from Home series. Inspired by the 2016 election, the series began on the night before the inauguration and is a response to shared and personal events since then. It began and continues as an exploration of juxtaposing images and found text. My interest is one of empowering the print with an emotional equivalence to the text as a way of acknowledging and reconciling the present time and history.
Every thing is not all right presents a time when fast-paced, immediate, and reactive hyper-social media escalated dramatically. Truth and lies. Discord and division. Pandemic. Climate. Democracy. All challenged.
This exhibition was funded in part by a grant from the Wyoming Arts Council.
I am pleased to announce that I have works in two juried exhibitions in February and March.
Size Matters (February 11 – March 11, 2022) is on view at Sparks Gallery in San Diego, CA. Juried by Bayley Mizelle, Director of the Photographic Arts Council Los Angeles (PAC LA), the exhibition celebrates artwork smaller than 10 inches in scale by 40 artists from North America and Europe. Size Matters is the premier photography exhibition by Medium Photo that recognizes photographic directions in small-scaled works.
Illuminance X (2018, 7 x 7 inches) is from my collaborative work with Sequencing Through Time and Place at the Carissa Gold Mine, South Pass City, WY. It is part of a small series of images that explore the focused illuminations of light that move through the main building of the mine as the sun passes with the day.
Reaching the zenith of darkness (December 21, 2019)
All About the Light (February 4 – March 26, 2022) was juried by Susan Burnstine, award-winning fine art and commercial photographer, for the Southeast Center for Photography in Greenville, SC. The exhibition explores the use of light, illumination, and darkness in contemporary images by 40 photographers. An online exhibition and catalog are available.
Reaching the zenith of darkness (December 21, 2019; 16 x 20 inches) is from my current View from Home series which began 5 years ago when I began intuitively juxtaposing images and found text, not only as a reflection on what the text refers to but what might be implied within the visceral experience of the photographic print. The series was inspired by the 2017 inauguration and my approaching career shift to my studio practice 10 months later, both acutely focused my attention on time and place — my time in my life, my geographic place, and my view from this place in the context of national and world events. The View from Home series continues as an exploration in empowering the print with an emotional or poetic equivalence to the text as a way of reconciling this moment in time and history.
Welcome to a special sale of my work dating back to the 1980s.
Over the years my work has ranged widely in subject matter and technique, but at its heart is the landscape, pictorial composition, intuitiveness, lyricism, and embracing the moment. Locations range from the Appalachian Mountains to the American West, Egypt, Cambodia, and Venice. Technological advances during my years of curatorial/arts administration have influenced how my work has evolved. The early color images were film-based and initially processed and printed by a lab. Digital technology enabled me to individualize image-making processes in my studio. Collaborations with other women artists—initially with photographer Jennifer Anne Tucker in Pennsylvania to more recently with artist Wendy Lemen Bredehoft and dancer/choreographer Margaret Wilson (Sequencing Through Time and Place)—have broadened my creative practice. In all cases, my commitment to composing at the time of exposure begins the process of bringing images to life through the final print.
As I now work on a solo exhibition of my current View from Home series at the O’Sullivan Art Gallery at Regis University (March 2022), I seek good homes for the work available below to be able to fully realize this upcoming exhibition. Please look, enjoy, and consider adding to your collection or gifting to others as the holiday season approaches.
