Dreams May Come
Recently, I personally delivered one of my framed cut paper collages, "Working Class Hero", to a collector in Florida. They own three giclée prints of my collages and this one, their second Deco original collage, will be displayed in the private area of the home. The owners are music lovers too, and especially devoted to John Lennon. We were all pleased with the transaction, and I got to spend some time on a pristine beach, collecting broken shells and scattered thoughts.
"Dreams" in ABQ
I am thrilled that one of my cut paper collages is included in an exhibition in Albuquerque for the month of March. The show “Women’s Work” will open at the Ghostwolf Gallery on March 4th in conjunction with monthly Artscrawl in Old Town and extend to the end of the month. My piece “What Dreams May Come” was selected to join two dozen women artists who explore the theme of women and their work. I expect it to be a fascinating show and I will be attending the reception and connect with my fellow artists.
Another event in March that I am preparing is a collage workshop for a private group. I will demonstrate my technique and provide instruction to the participants as they create a cut paper collage to bring home. This is the first post-pandemic workshop that I am creating, and I am excited about working with eager artists.
Psychedelia Art Presentation
Psychedelia in the 60s and 70s was a potent expression of art and a source of inspiration for me. I am collaborating with a Brooklyn artist, Marlene Weisman, who is a collagist and a graphic artist. We are creating a presentation on Psychedelic Art which we will deliver at a music festival conference in the New York Metro area at the beginning of April. We are planning to make this an immersive experience for the audience. This project has been years in the planning and we are looking forward to its fruition.
I also have a gorgeous new greeting card collection that I call “Enchantment” with inspiring collage designs of scenes in New Mexico. This is a set of square format blank cards of the five images seen here including Arroyo Morning, Hear the Echoes, Water is Life, Summer Storm and Tree of Life. I can sell them directly to you ( just send an email email@example.com for info). And they are available in my Etsy shop, DECOcollageCards, with shipping included in the price. If you visit Santa Fe in the Land of Enchantment, be sure to visit the Pushpin Collaborative Co., which stocks some of my card designs.
Spring and New Life are approaching! What Larks!
Peace and Love,
