the four pieces I have exhibited

I am Woman Exhibit

Women's Art Exhibition, "I am Woman," show opens on Aug. 15, 2008 woman1.jpgAn exhibit featuring women artists will open Aug. 15 at The Next Picture Show, 113 W. First St. The "I Am Woman" show, which runs through Sept. 16, will include artwork depicting women or objects related to women. "When we put our calendar together each year, we try to work in some new concepts. With this show, we wanted to feature work with themes ranging from jobs and childbearing to humor and friendships and much more," said Bonnie Kime, executive director of the gallery. "The art runs the spectrum from paintings in all mediums, photography, textiles/fiber, printmaking, graphic illustration, drawing and mixed media."
The show is open to the public with an artists' reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Aug. 15. The public is invited to stop by and meet the artists. Pat Schaible, owner of Something Special at 123 W. First St., is the sponsor.
Artist Raphael Iaccarino will judge the show. He is an internationally known artist whose vivid watercolors are inspired by the Costa Rican rain forests and jungles. Iaccarino, whose work is exhibited in public and
private collections worldwide, has spent years observing the primary subject of his inspiring work.

I guess part of it is getting back on my feet....after the broken bone in my foot and the way it affected by walk...I eventually ruptured two discs in my back...I am walking and driving again and going to PT twice a week...strengthening my "core" muscles....Now that I am off the vicodin and celebrex...I have a clear head...lots of energy, great ideas and am rockin!

I am working to finish the order for the Rockford Art Museum Store.
They recently finished a total renovation and you must walk through the store to enter the exhibits. It is an elegant area and their items are displayed beautifully with fantastic lighting....Presentation is everything...right!
