I'm flying out to start a one month artist residency at an old ketchup factory in Berkeley, CA. I'm cutting down paper and packing today.  I'll post what I do & make. Hoping for a productive month! I'm going to try to go to the Somarts Cultural Center. They have a book event with dance installations opening the day I get there that looks really exciting.

Man as Object, Reversing the Gaze Exhibition

The image LAY was selected out of 645 submissions by juror Tanya Augsburg, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Liberal Studies (Creative Arts and Humanities), San Francisco State University, for inclusion in the Man as Object, Reversing the Gaze exhibition to be held at SOMArts Cultural Center, 934 Brannan Street, San Francisco from November 4 – 26, 2011.  The images WINDOW and IN HAND will also be included in the Reverse the Gaze catalog. The exhibition is sponsored by the Women's Caucus for Art.


2.25 International Print Exchange

Included in a print exchange organized by Candace Nicol at Oxboo Press in Reno, NV. 
2.25 refers to the  tiny paper size. See the prints here. My screen prints are on handmade paper. I made the paper with Claire Lacy in her family paper studio.

Finally started a group of prints commissioned by Waterford Hearing Center.   They are relief surface screen prints rubbed with oil paints and wax medium.  Each is unique because of the handmade process. I did a run of 10 prints and I have only colored 3 so far. Work in progress... I wanted the colors to look like earwax but I might try a few different hues.
