DIA DE LOS MUERTOS 

Dreams Emerging: Beyond Resilience

Now in its 22nd year, SOMArts’ annual Día de Los Muertos exhibition is one of the most internationally diverse Day of the Dead celebrations in the United States. This year SOMArts invited artists to reflect on how loss and isolation have shaped their Dreams Emerging. Artists were asked to create altar installations that reflect on how the last year has transformed their visions of connection, freedom, and healing… to create work that embodies their dreams of the world they want to live in. This year, I am honoring Betty Segal – healer, artist, and longtime community member of SOMArts. Watch for updates!

COMPOSING THE FUTURE

A NCWCA Member Exhibition

The Bankhead Theater, Livermore CA

Exhibition Director: Elizabeth Addison, NCWCA Exhibitions Chair

Jurors: Elizabeth Addison, Anne Giancola, Marianne McGrath

For Composing the Future, I invited NCWCA members to address current crises and coming societal shifts in a visionary way. I was curious how my NCWCA artist colleagues would respond with artwork. It was exciting to see that most entries were newly created and inspired by this theme. As a whole, the artwork of Composing the Future reacts to the catastrophes of 2020 by confronting history, provoking change, challenging predictions, and calling out priorities for the near and far future. I was honored to present the potent artwork of NCWCA’s Membership in Composing the Future. To view the entire exhibit, click here.

ONE NEST: EARTHWORKS

Abrams Claghorn Gallery, Albany CA

Sculptor Vicki Gunter and I introduced our collaboration, One Nest: Earthworks, at Abrams Claghorn Gallery earlier this year. We premiered new ceramic sculptures from Vicki and prints from my Pandemania Days series. The art of One Nest: Earthworks envisions the rights of nature as equivalent to human rights. And that these rights embrace ALL beings without exception. We believe in art as agency for change. We share these impressions in clay, ink, and light. Our exhibition was both online and curated in the gallery's physical space.

I wish to thank Abrams Claghorn Gallery, NCWCA, and Kala Art Institute for their support of my projects and for the support of local contemporary artists and artisans.
