Getting Out and About in North Georgia

Exciting news! I sold a natural pigment painting.

Next to my painting, 1942, at the Mark exhibition opening reception It made me realize that this blog was overdue for an update!

A few months ago one of my paintings was selected for the Mark exhibition at the Lyndon House in Athens. This exhibition was sponsored by the Women's Caucus for Art of Georgia and curated by Georgia Strange.

(You should be able to tab through and see other photos from the opening here.)

Just as I was about to leave the house to pick up my work, I got a call informing me that my painting had been sold. I may have weirded out the lady on the other end by getting excited about this, but, as I told her, that news really made my day.

If you are an artist who is also woman, I encourage you to look into getting a membership with the Women's Caucus for Art / Women's Caucus for Art of Georgia. Even if you can’t make it to the live events and meetings, they’re a fantastic source of information and exhibition opportunities.

Since my last post, I also participated in a juried show at the Kudzu Art Center.

Next to my painting, Braided, at the juried exhibition opening reception (See more photos from the opening reception.)

And I’m in the middle of preparing for an exciting project. (Hint: It’s centered around Bitcoin-inspired acrylic paintings that I have been making. Read more about my thoughts on this on the Coin Café blog.)

Beyond this, I’m currently hammering out a master plan that will make this blog even more useful to you, dear reader. This includes material insights as well as interviews with artists who use natural materials. Stay tuned for further updates!
