REFORM Reception

The reception for REFORM, the Washington Sculptors Group show I am in at The Workhouse in Lorton was great fun. 
Nine of the artists, including myself, were on a panel expertly led by Claire Huschle, the curator of the show and executive director of the Arlington Arts Center. After the panel, Claire gave a curator's talk, addressing each piece, its relevance to the theme of the show and why she chose it. Her talk was thoughtful and  insightful, greatly enhancing the viewers appreciation and understanding of the show.

Artomatic Opens!

Artomatic opened tonight! It was a madhouse, with thousands of people streaming through the doors to look at over 1000 artists' work, listen to music, watch dancers and have a great time. If you get a chance to go, it's up through July 5th. 
I love Artomatic and have done it the past three years. I think it is an inspired, unjuried melee of creativity. I took a shot of one of my favorite pieces, by David D'Orio, which is shown here. To see more of his work go to
I also really loved this work but must go back to get the artist's name. All is made of glass and clay, I believe.

Flora Opens!

Flora opened tonight! We had a really good crowd, despite the threatening skies and lack of parking. Many of the artists came, some traveling across the country to attend. After working with everyone via e-mail so long it was delightful to meet all of the artists.
Here I am beside my work, Forest Lost.

Flora: Growing Inspirations

The many months of work on Flora have finally culminated in the installation of the sculpture. It's a gorgeous show at the US Botanic garden in partnership with the Washington Sculptors Group, showcasing the work of over 30 national sculptors.

Reston Arts Festival

This weekend I had a booth at the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival in Reston, VA. Ranked the number one arts festival on the East coast, they always have a talented array of artists. 
Though it was windy and cold and booths literally flew away on Saturday night in the ferocious storms that hit our area, I had a great time.
 It's always rewarding to meet new people and to hear a direct response to your work!
