Happy New Year and Happy New Decade to all of you! I am happy to be in a new house in Santa Rosa and to have a new studio space in our garage at 5017 Maiden Lane, Santa Rosa, CA 95409. Look for announcements in a few weeks about workshops and classes in hand papermaking at my new studio.
I am also happy to announce the following upcoming exhibitions in 2020:
Exhibition Title: Assemblage, 20 Years of Environmental Art at the Schuylkill Center, an invitational exhibition of works by former Artists-in-Residence and artists who have exhibited at Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education, Philadelphia, PA, curated by Christina Catanese, Director of Environmental Art. I was the first artist-in-residence at the Schuylkill Center in 2001 with a grant from the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, and I will exhibit “Schuylkill Center Trail Map” made with handmade paper from plants of Schuylkill during the residency and also documentation of my recent work “Living Quilt for Santa Rosa” 2018 that was influenced by the work I did at Schuylkill using paper pulp with seeds for wildlfowers in the pulp to change and grow over time.
