Another new gallery show

One Kiss, Frog Prince


I hung my fairy tale series of mixed media and assemblages recently. It feels like a fairy tale to me, being allowed to show my work in another Roanoke gallery. This one is special. 2nd Helpings is a gallery that represents more than 100 artists on a rotating basis. Artists receive a percentage of the sales for their work and all Gallery profits are donated to the Roanoke Rescue Mission to help provide the basics needed: food, shelter and medical attention.



This view shows Pandora’s Box, Cindy’s Slipper, Acts of Kindness and One Kiss, Frog Prince.






This view shows Slow Rider, Rose Red, and Red’s Wolf. Red’s Wolf was photographed to be the cover image of the current issue of Roanoke College’s Roanoke Review, an annual national  journal that publishes poetry and short fiction.

2nd Helpings gallery (and cafe) is at 1502 Williamson Road in Roanoke, Va. 

Just a few blocks past the Roanoke Civic Center.


Show at the Co-op

The Natural Foods Co-op in Roanoke, VA is one of my favorite places, so it was with great pleasure that I hung my art work there today, August 20 through September 24, 2012. The works I chose to show there are natural in theme; my tree series of assemblages.  Since assemblage art is an upcycling of found objects and materials, my work feels right at home here. Stop by and check it out in both areas of the cafe.

Me and my trees

























Be sure to take a reusable shopping bag and purchase some organic veggies, vegetarian yummies from the cafe, whole grain breads, local cheeses, free range eggs, and fresh ground peanut butter!

My art is for sale too, no bag necessary. Much thanks to Katherine Devine for the opportunity.
