Collaborative Concepts at Saunders Farm is an excellent venue for experimental sculpture. This year my piece, "DRIP DRY", a clothesline hung with metal clothing, was my first experiment working with aluminum flashing and screen material. I decorated the flashing by piercing it with nail holes, a technique inspired by New Mexican metal work. This show is up through the end of October, 2014. After that, "DRIP DRY" will be installed in the garden of the BEAN RUNNER CAFE in Peekskill as part of THE POWER OF WOMEN ARTISTS.
The Garrison Arts Center hosted a wonderful community event on October 5, 2014. An entire day was devoted to making prints, large and small. Printmakers, new and seasoned, of all ages, participated. The weather was glorious and the results were spectacular. Artists Barbara G. Smith, Coulter Young and Ada Cruz were among the volunteers who made this happen.
I am an artist who enjoys trying new media. I love the cross-pollination of ideas. Often, though, it all comes back to drawing.
