In Case You're Wondering

In case you're wondering...
A view of the space... we had a great turnout...
I pulled out my camera after most had left

How my  opening at Alfa Art Gallery went last Friday.... OR
How I find the different artists to participate in my weekly Artist as Collector Series, this post is for you.
My work hung at Alfa Art Gallery
as part of the New Brunswick Art Salon Fall 2012
It was exciting for me to see how my sculptures and the drawings created from the shadows of the nets informed and related to each other in the gallery space.  I received wonderful feedback and came away feeling energized to continue exploring this series of nets- how they hang and the shadow drawings and paintings.

It was also so wonderful to see so many family and friends- many who I had not seen in years, and others who took a break from dealing with the recent implications and devastation from Sandy.

Ethan Sherman's work at Alfa Art Gallery

I also met new artists- one of whom, Ethan Sherman was last Sunday's guest blogger for my Artist as Collector Series.  Ethan's paintings remind me remotely of Howard Hodgkin's work of whom I am a huge fan. I love Ethan's use of materials, the surface and the paint and how there is a pared down approach to his work.

My husband Scott was really drawn to the work of Dion Hitchings so you may soon find a post about Dion's work in our collection!

Thanks for visiting my blog and thank you for your kind words about my work. So glad you like Ethan's as well... do you think the nets look like hats?
