It’s been a little over a month since updated you.
April was very good to me. First, my accountant got me a sweet tax refund, which allowed me to traveled to New York to attend the AIPAD fair. The fair was great because my work got a lot of attention from interested collectors, I made a lot of new connections and had a great time catching up with old friends and making new ones. There are other exciting opportunities for my work that came from this trip but I will share the details later once everything has been solidified.
For friends in the Southern California region, I would like to invite you to see the new exhibition title Woven at the Sturt Haaga Gallery at Descanso Gardens in La Cañada Flintridge. The exhibit will be open to the public starting Tuesday, May 17 and will run through Sunday, August 28, 2016. I am in great company with this list of artists: Marsia Alexander-Clarke, Melanie Ciccone, Clifford Eberly, Susan Feldman, Agustin Garza, Jenny Hart, Nicholette Kominos, Dinh Q. Le, Kristin Leachman, Jairlyn Mason, Thinh Nguyen, Echiko Ohira, James Richards, Meriel Stern, Joan Weinzettle, Pontus Willfors. John David O’Brien curated the exhibit and here are a few words from him about the show, “Like weaving itself, the premise of this exhibition is both simple and satisfyingly complex. When the purpose of weaving transcends utility and enters art, we see in full the many meanings and association to be found in the act of weaving, and in things woven.” The gallery admission is free with regular Garden Admission (parking is free) from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM daily except Mondays when the Sturt Haaga Gallery is closed.
In case you got a sweet tax refund too, I would like to tell you about my most recent limited edition photo book titled New Landscapes. The book was initially published for AIPAD and contains the images that where shown in the Klotz Gallery booth plus a few more. If you would like to purchase a copy of this or my other book Time Interwoven, I encourage you to check out my web store. Each book costs $20 and are signed and numbered.
Thanks again for supporting me.
