upcoming show. first friday. sept. 2nd.

Máscara (Mask)

i will have stuff here! :)

upcoming show

September 2 - 24, 2011
First Friday reception September 2 6-9 pm

...Projects Gallery is pleased to present Máscara (Mask), a juried exhibition exploring the contemporary use of the mask. More than 25 artists will be featured, with works in a variety of media, including drawing, mixed media, painting, photography, print, sculpture and video. Everyone wears a mask, whether literally or figurative. What are we trying to hide or reveal? Ancient man used the altered human form to represent the mysteries of his world. Shaman or medicine men wear body paint or crafted objects to transform themselves into forms from the spirit world. Halloween and Mardi Gras are two of today’s blends of religious and secular celebrations. What does the mask represent for modern man? We wear masks of all kinds – as part of religious rituals, in theater, in sports, in entertainment, in combat as well as in the face we present to others.

Juror, Henry Bermudez, has selected an eclectic group of artists to discuss this topic. Mr. Bermudez is a Venice Biennale Venezuelan artist who has shown throughout the world and has had more than 30 solo exhibitions and has participated in more than 75 group exhibitions. His works are included in several public and private collections, including National Museum of Catholic Art & History, New York; Museums of Contemporary Art, Caracas, Maracaibo, Merida, and Maracay, Venezuela; Modern Art Museum of Costa Rica; Puebla Cultural House, Puebla, Mexico; Museum of Art Ralli, Punta Del Este, Uruguay. He currently lives in Philadelphia and has an installation at the Philadelphia International Airport.

Máscara (Mask) will run September 2 - 24, 2011 with a First Friday reception September 2nd from 6-9. The reception is free and open to the public. Projects Gallery invites all attendees to wear their own masks to the reception. The gallery is open Thursday through Saturday noon to 7 p.m. For more information, please contact Projects Gallery at 267-303-9652 or

hello my little bloglets :D

i have had an unbelievably busy few months.
it is unusual for me, because i am usually somewhat of a hermit, and it took some getting used to, but i have survived! ;)

in march, my arty friend from belfast came to visit for a couple of weeks! we did arty things, and went junque shopping, and went to places like eastern state penitentiary and the barnes foundation. it was really fun!

then i had the plush team retreat where a bunch of us plush teamers rented a big cabin in the mountains of virginia, and sewed and ate and laughed :D
plush team retreat 2011

after that, i went to ireland for a couple of weeks. my mother in law came back home with us for a few weeks too!

phrenology and the way brains work

hello bloglets! :D
it seems like i've been gone forever... with the holidays and then coming down with the flu :(
and i started this painting before even then, but i'm just finished it now :)

it's called "phrenology" and it's about 16.5" inches square.

what happened was...
for mother's day last year, my husband bought me this phrenology head for my studio:

fowler phrenology head

i LOVE it! but it didn't seem to make sense to me. it's all organized and everything fits together, and i don't think that is the way my brains look.
so i made my own phrenology head that is probably more accurate for me.

here's some other views...


"phrenology" detail


i'm happy that the holidays are over! i'm ready for this new year! bring it!!!! :D
