Oh the Horror!

I think I mentioned earlier in the month that the wonderfully tal
ented Beth Robinson, asked me if I would be in a Halloween themed group show. I met her at the new gallery space at the soda plant, the S.P.A.C.E. I handed off my "spooky" new pieces to her today. Take a look at the creepy doll shrine and haunted mixed media collages that I will be showing.

Beth was impressed with
the size of my new pieces and I have to say they are
probably the largest
assemblages and collage works I have done. I am really happy with how all four of the pieces turned out.
Albeit, they are dark and haunted. The subject matter, stronger and and a little creepier than I usually approach.

But, it was great to stretch myself, both in the size of the work, the content and the process. I used some new techniques that I had been playing with and although I was up late, burning the midnight oil for many nights, this project was altogether, very satisfying.

I AM going to be early tonight, but there is no rest for the weary. With two craft shows looming in my near future, and a guest artist project due this weekend, I am pushing full steam ahead.
If you are in the area, do check out the show at

at the Soda Plant. It runs till 10/31 with a closing party on Halloween. And, you are welcome to pop in at the opening reception, this Friday from 5-8, part of the Burlington 1st Friday Art Walk.
