Good News/Bad News

We had a wonderful turn out for our exhibit opening even though it was a dark and stormy night, and the show looks terrific. On the down side, several folks were turned away at the door on that night, and quite a few others have been sent packing since then when they arrived at the venue. The theatre manager has reneged on his commitment to let viewers in at the hours stated on the postcard he sanctioned! After MUCH negotiation we have determined that 1) he is a !Z(&*^@!!BXX%$#@Z, and, more importantly, 2) you can get in if you come to one of our walk-throughs or the closing event. These are Wednesday, February 3 at 1 pm, Tuesday, February 16 at 11 am, and Sunday, March 7 from 5-7. We are very, very sorry if you were one of those denied access and hope you will join us at one of the artist-supervised occasions listed above. You can enter through the main theatre doors or around the Manhattan Beach Bl. side of the building directly into the gallery. Hope to see you then!!

Fetid Wells III (click on image to enlarge)

This is the third and last piece in the Fetid Wells series. It is about 3' x 4' and comprised of three distinct layers which are separated by foam core and rest about 1/2 inch apart from each other within the frame. It is massive compared to most of my work. It has loads of hand stitching on painted, dyed, printed, embellished, etc., surfaces of cotton on industrial felt. The photos do not really do justice to the shadows which form between the layers. It might just represent a new direction in my work ... time will tell.
