Intersections + Transformations Exhibition Opening

Every year for six years, ANWS has hosted an annual exhibition of visual art that inspires us. In the past, we have explored local emerging artists, the art that inspires local artists we know well, work from emerging artists throughout North Carolina, and most recently in 2016, exciting work by installations artists in North Carolina. This year, we return to work created closer to home featuring local artists some we have featured before and some entirely new to us and, we hope, to you.

Please join us in celebrating the following talented locals at our opening reception on Friday, October 13th. The exhibition will be up through November 7th.

Now installing: Sanctuary and Safekeeping

Today we started installing Sanctuary and Safekeeping, part 3 in my ongoing collaboration with artists Nicole Uzzell and Millicent Greason. Together we chose this topic to explore over a year ago and worked in our different mediums to expand on what environments and experiences make us feel safe and fed our souls.

If you follow me on Instagram  you’ve seen parts and pieces of this exploration through the past year, and now I’m really excited and energized to see how our individual visions are coming together and creating a dialog of artwork around this subject in the gallery.

I hope you will visit this exhibit in the coming months and add your thoughts to the ongoing conversation. It’s one of particular importance as we face the challenges in this new year. More info about the exhibit and opening reception after the jump.

160930 Sawtooth Workshop
I love this graphic bird tea towel, designed and printed by a student in the September class. She was kind enough to gift me one, too!

Here are a few pictures from my September Workshop. What a fun group! Everyone was able to explore the process at their own pace with very creative results.

Printing Workshop this weekend!

#wip #workinprogress hand painted screen ready to go

OK y’all! There are still a few slots open for my screen printing workshop this Saturday if you’re looking for a cozy way to spend a rainy Saturday in W-S. The class is this Saturday, 05/21, from 10:00 AM – 03:30 PM. We’ll be covering printing techniques including painting with screen blockers (like the image above), and if we have some extra time we’ll do a paper-cut print or two. It’s always a messy-good time, so come on down if you’d like to play with us.

The next Sawtooth Workshop after this is Friday 09/30/16, and you can sign up for it now if you’re a plan-ahead type like me.

I’ve just wrapped up a big illustration project that will be coming out in early June, I believe. This one’s for Wake Forest Magazine. Very excited about it. If you follow me on instagram, you’ve seen some sneak peeks.

#wip #workinprogress #studiotime

Still working on storage and organization in the new studio space (putting the finishing touches on some custom-built under-stairs storage-yass!) and updating my design and artwork websites in an attempt to move beyond the current shoeless-cobblers-children scenario (it plagues us all, doesn’t it?).

Also sketching Art*O*Mat “Hankie Pankie” limited edition Collapsible Fine Art Prints for a new Things That Make Me Cry series, coming soon. (Wow, I just found this amazing photo on the Baltimore Sun when I googled to find some of my flickr pics of Hankies to share.) Stay tuned for some work-in-progress hankies drawings!
