So pleased to be a part of it, and surprised (in a good way!) to get a whole wall to display 6 of my new paintings. Feeling incredibly grateful to everyone who was able to make it out, and all the kind comments about my work since.

The show was a big success due to the amazing artists involved - the fabulous Michael Frietas Wood curated the show, and he along with Beanie Kaman, Peggy Sivert, Ben Zask, Gilles d'Amecourt, Kristan Marvell & Tracey Weiss did an excellent job installing the exhibit.  The show was balanced and created a flow through the beautiful converted industrial venue.  Not an easy feat when you are trying to give equal weight to 15 artists with many color palettes, subject matter and both sculptural and 2D elements!  

Like many of the viewers, I only wish this magical and poignant show could have continued for more than one day. View more photos on the Facebook event page
