Join me on Sunday, February 11, at the Railyard Farmers Market Pavilion in Santa Fe, when I will be conducting a Valentine’s collage workshop. All supplies are provided, including a hefty stash of magazines and catalogs, so you can just arrive ready to cut and paste a gorgeous Valentine card for your sweetie. Truly a gift from the heart! The workshop is free, and all ages are invited, from 11 am to 1 pm. See you there!
I will also debut a new line of cards: Scenes of New Mexico. These 5” x 7” greeting cards are bundled in an attractive packet, five blank cards + envelopes. They are derived from collages I have created here in Santa Fe. I now have 4 collections of Greeting cards: Fine Ladies Dancing, Rising, and Perfectly Pear. They can be purchased directly from me, or from the new online store, Art of Santa Fe.
The past weeks have been busy. I made a quick trip to visit a friend in Florida, and to approve the framing and installation of a giclee print of one of my largest collages, Bloomsday at Molly Malone’s. The piece depicts a pub interior and pays tribute to the Centennial Celebration of the fictional day of renown in James Joyce’s Ulysses. And speaking of Joyce, I returned to Santa Fe in time to join my fellow Joyce geeks at the James Joyce Birthday Bash (something like the traditional Bobby Burns celebration, but without the Haggis.)
Meanwhile, I am busy at my easel, cutting and pasting. I am working on the eighth collage, in my series the Coral Reef. A few more to go and I will exhibit them all at once. You can come see me at work on Sundays at the Railyard.
In the coming weeks, I am preparing for a show in nearby Española, New Mexico in April. I am very pleased to be asked to display my work in the Northern New Mexico Regional Art Center, in the Plaza in the center of town. Besides the opening reception, I plan to have a demonstration of my technique. I will post the dates and times as soon as they are finalized.
More shows to come!
Love and Peace,
