I was honored to be selected by Artworks, Kolar Design and the art selection commmittee to make an additional new body of work in 2014 for Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). These 12 pieces were based on thematic insects used throughout the NICU- bees, butterflies, ladybugs, caterpillars, dragonflies, grasshoppers- 2 handmade paper and fabric collages for each insect. They will be hung on the walls in the Neonatal Nursery to create a joyful space and as location finders.
This link should take you to my 10 minute interview that aired Sunday night 4/27/14 with Barbara Gray on Around Cincinnnati, a weekly radio show featuring many unique cultural stories about the arts, music, literature, gardening and more.
I really appreciate having the opportunity to talk about my life in papermaking and my current projects. Hope you will take time to listen and let me know what you think! Barbara did an excellent job of interviewing me.
Stu and I hung my show featuring 18 handmade paper collages at Ruth’s Parkside Cafe in Northside yesterday and I feel it adds a lot of life to a very beautiful space. Since my art work in this show features many portraits in paper, it is a bit like seeing my imaginary family pictures on the walls. I am familiar with them all but wonder what others will think?
I will be having a special opening on Sunday May 18, from 3-5pm that you are all invited to attend. Ruth’s is closed for meals on Sunday’s so it will be open for a light reception in honor of my exhibition. The exhibit will continue through Saturday, June 28.
There is also another event happening in Northside on that date that you might be interested in as well. http://www.cincinnatiarts.org/events/detail/north-by-northside
Thanks for all the support and encouragement from my family and friends throughout my life as an artist.
