An exhibit of my latest botanical paintings will be at the TAG Gallery from February 27 to March 22, 2008. The Opening Reception is Saturday, March 8 from 5-8 pm; there is an Artist’s Talk on Wednesday, March 19 at 7 pm. TAG is located at 2903 Santa Monica Blvd, in Santa Monica. The Gallery’s normal hours are Wed – Sat, 11am-5pm. You can learn more about the Gallery at www.taggallery.net.
My subjects for this exhibit come primarily from the Hollywood Farmers Market, where I go each Sunday to shop for inspiration (and the week’s groceries!). While remaining true to my subjects, I think I’ve given my new work a real dramatic twist.
I’ve had a great time in botanical art during the last eight years — taking classes at Otis College of Art and Design and the New York Botanical Garden, and week-long workshops with all the wonderful master artists who have visited Los Angeles. I’ve also taught at Otis, the Los Angeles Arboretum, and lately at the Getty Center, and I’ve been in juried competitions all over the country. I was honored to be selected as a panel member to review grant applications for the National Endowment for the Arts and had my work featured on a CNNfn segment about the “new collectibles.” Even after all these years I still look forward to having a quick breakfast, maybe some time on the treadmill, and then heading straight to my studio.
