Wild & Wooly





The bizarre and the beautiful sit side by side in The Tame & The Wild  - The March exhibition at the Pacini Lubel Gallery. On display are works from several gallery artists that feature animals and insects. The show is an eclectic mix of paintings and sculpture that provide a great way to usher in spring. Images featured from top to bottom: Russell Wrankle - Red Hare,  Jan Hopkins - Fish Out of Water and Lindsay Ketterer Gates - Metamorphosis


Also on display this month…. A show titled Dress Envy at the Winston Wachter Gallery featuring the charming dress sculptures of Tori Ellison and Mielle Riggie among others. This show runs through April 23rd, 2010. Image on the left is the work of Ellison and on the right is a piece by Riggie.

These inspired me to share this dress sculpture I created several years ago made of cotton, wax and wire. The title of this piece is Sitting Pretty.


In The Studio: Finishing up some new paintings for the Alexis Hotel and working on my Solo show for July. These sunny Seattle days are making it hard to stay in the studio. There are some additional art venues coming up this month so stay tuned for updates.
