Invitational Exhibit at 4th Street Fine Art

Fourth Street Fine Art is proud to host our first invitational show. For this special summer event, our resident artists each invited a special guest artist of their choice. The result is a delightful combination of abstract, realism, collage and fine drawing. Come by for the reception on July 14, from 5 to 7pm and meet the accomplished artists we’re showcasing in July.

A quartet of small paintings from my Fern series are included in this invitational exhibit. (Above: Destination Fern 120, Slipstream Fern 287, Scatter Fern 165, On Purpose Fern 290).

A special shout out of thanks to Sherrod Blankner for the invitation!

West Coast Biennial at Turtle Bay Exploration Park, at Redding, CA through April 28

 

I’m delighted to be included in the West Coast Biennial exhibit at Turtle Bay Exploration Park, Redding, CA. I offer much appreciation to juror Carrie Lederer. This beautiful exhibit continues through Sunday, April 28, 2019.

West Coast Biennial features original art from West Coast artists living in California, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska. The exhibition provides a forum for both established and emerging artists working on the west coast in a diversity of media including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, sculpture and mixed media.

Turtle Bay Exploration Park is a fun, non-profit 300-acre gathering place featuring the Sundial Bridge, a museum, forestry & wildlife center, arboretum and botanical gardens.

Recent work from the Wild Things series, as I continue to investigate and interpret botanical forms. Corn Lilies (Veratrum californicum) are native perennials that grow in moist meadow lands of the Eastern Sierras and are found in several western states. Although considered poisonous, these plants contain a unique alkaloid that has been used in clinical trials to treat certain forms of cancer, by inhibiting the hedgehog signaling pathway.
