Exhibitions

Solo exhibition: “Wonderment: The Industry of Youth.”  This will be the premiere of brand new studio work.

To me, “Wonderment” means to be in a state of wondering, thinking, questioning, dreaming, imagining, delighting, considering, discovering, being mesmerized, enraptured, fully engaged in the moment. There’s no worries about the past, no cares about the future. Fully present, fully human, fully now. This is the “work/industry” of children.
 
It’s much easier for children to experience “Wonderment” than adults because everything is brand new for them. Since children haven’t seen it all, the first time they encounter each little thing they experience a little bit of wonderment…and us adults watching them do too! 
 
My goal is not to create a specific likeness of one specific child, but to invoke an empathy that encompasses all children. 
 
I’ve challenged myself to create each painting in this series with only 3 (or maybe 4) pigments plus white.  In artist’s jargon this is called using a “limited palette” or “gamut mixing”.  
 
Opening Reception: Friday, March 8, 5:00 – 7:00 pm
 
Blue Heron Coffeehouse
162 W. 2nd Street
Winona, MN 55987.
 
The exhibition will be installed on Tuesday, March 5, and remain on display until mid-May.
