I was accepted into Ohio Designer Craftsmen’s annual juried show this year. My sculpture “Blue Wave” will be on display at the Ohio Craft Museum in Columbus, Ohio from May 5, through July 28, 2019. The show then travels to Springfield, Ohio from September 20 through December 15, 2019. Pictures below. This piece is made of slumped glass and clay with some resin embellishments. I have made some ceramic molds to create the glass shapes.
It’s time again for the Women of Appalachia Project, a special show that is run by and for women in the Appalachian region. It brings together visual artists and poets in a traveling art show and poetry readings. Here are pictures of my entries.
Go to womenofappalachia.com for a full listing of events.
The Riverside Artists Gallery is putting on a show! The opening is August 25 from 6-9pm. Poets will read their poems and then a visual artist will talk about the artwork created to bring that poem alive.
The poem that inspired me is “Myself” by Debby Mullins
“I hear a noise in the distant night of a hound that seems to cry. ‘What’s wrong ole dog?’ I asked myself, but myself didn’t say why.
Myself is far in the future and always has somewhere to go. But as for me, I know nothing, my mind is just ‘to and fro’.
So like the ole dog I hear howling in the dark and distant night. My mind is not at ease and myself just isn’t right.”
Here are pictures of the sculpture I made, the scary trees represent the dark and distant night or the past. The white piece in front with tiny barefoot footprints the future and new hope/ideas. As myself and ole dog make their way down the path.
Can you find what’s just not right?
Here are some pictures of two sculptures that were juried into “The River” exhibition at the Parkersburg Art Center PAC. The opening will be on Sunday July 22, 2018 from 1:30-3:30pm.
These are mixed media, slumped glass and ceramic with added shells and stones. And glue.
The Majestic Gallery in Nelsonville, Ohio will be exhibiting two of my sculptures as part of their Majestic National juried show. The show opens on October 27 as part of the Final Friday events. Final Fridays in Nelsonville are a wonderful example of community fun, the square is pedestrian friendly, it’s laid back and has a wonderful range of art experiences.
The featured photo shows a slumped glass and ceramic sculpture “Carried Away”. Also in the show is “Medusa” a stoneware wall sculpture shown below.

Three more sculptures will be in the Ohio University Multicultural Center Gallery in Baker Center as part of the Women of Appalachia Project. I’ll be helping to hang the show with several other artists, this is one of the perks, getting to know other artists in a relaxed space where we all work together to put on a show. And quite a show it is, funny, thoughtful, personal, evocative, and poetic! The opening reception is on Feb 3 from 5-8pm. click on the link below for more info
