I'm truly looking forward to participating in this exhibition. The three paintings of mine that were selected are also featured on the website. How cool as that!!
I'm here at The Arts Place in Portland, IN to curate and install the Beyond Fayum exhibition featuring artworks by Fused Chicago members. It's been a few months since I've moved and been away from my Exhibitions Curator position at the Freeport Art Museum, so it is really nice to stretch my legs, so to speak, by executing the final stages of putting this show together by installing the exhibit in their gallery space. I am very pleased at how the show turned out so I hope many visitors have the opportunity to come see the show while it is on display in the Hugh N. Ronald Gallery.
This coming January, I'll be exhibiting some of my work in the Beyond Fayum exhibition at the Arts Place Portland Center. The show will display from January 7 - February 3, 2019.
I am happy to announce that "Colony Collapse/Bees 1" is selected for the 59th Mid-State Art Exhibition in Evansville, IN.

I am looking forward to working with the Maggie Black Gallery to host my first encaustic painting workshop for Galena's upcoming Ladies' Galena Getaway weekend event.
It's been a rather busy and chaotic couple of months because my husband and I have been working on moving to Indiana. It's amazing all the things that take so much time and energy from preparing the house to sell, finding a new house and the process of buying and closing, selling our old house, having garage sales, packing, unpacking, canceling old and setting up new utilities, getting to know the new area, etc....etc.
I’m feeling sad now that I’m starting to pack up my studio space in preparation for our move. I won’t likely be able to work get too much studio work done again until we find and move into a new house. So I’m sad to be leaving this space that has really helped me break into and explore the world of encaustic painting, and I’m also sad that this means for several months I will probably not be able to work on my art. Fare thee well my precious studio space.
Here are a few photos of the exhibition currently on display at the Brickton Art Center in Ridge Park, IL.
