Visit me this Weds. June 15th for a very special event!
It’s your first chance to see my 2011 pieces in person. My first exhibition of the season will be at the Orange Art Center Invitational Craft show on April 15th and April 16th
I’ll be there with Gina DeSantis, Cindy Kepler, Susan Kleinstub, David Shafron, Susan Skove, Jenn Szalkowski, and Terra Verde Soap Co.
April 15th is the Patron party and admission is $5, April 16th is free and open to the public.
I am super excited about the new installations that will be opening up at MOCA, Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art for the 2011 Winter and Spring seasons. I dropped off some work recently to the museum shop and I managed to get a sneak peek at the Blind Landscape exhibit by Teresita Fernández. Her large sculptures and wall installations are breathtakingly beautiful and the stainless steel and graphite were striking in contrast to the stark white walls of MOCA.
There will also be, what no doubt will be a thought-provoking and moving film by Javier Téllez, Letter on the Blind, for the Use of Those Who See. The filmmaker documented the experiences of six blind people as they touched and interacted with an elephant. Imagine the perceptions without the use of sight.
Also on display will be Passive Voices by Lori Ott, with resins and found objects combining.
The opening takes place on Friday, January 28 and is totally free.

MY favorite show of the year is approaching fast. I love being a participating artist and I love shopping at it. It’s a festive, fun and art filled day.
This year there is an extra special early bird admission. Come an hour early and donate $5 to the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland and you get a head start on the shopping, complimentary breakfast refreshments, and entry into the drawing for door prizes. (I know I donated several pairs of earrings, cards, and photographs…I’ve heard rumors of cutting boards, dryer sachets, knit goods and more. These baskets are going to be GREAT!)
Better yet, your donation will go ENTIRELY to the Hunger Network, and that $5 can feed approximately 20 people!
Visit the Last Minute Market site for more detail on the Early Bird Admission
If you can’t make it by 9 am, the FREE event begins at 10 a.m. and goes until 6 p.m. on December 18th. There will be crafts, art,food, a craft-off challenge, and don’t forget the open artist studios in the building as well.
