So....on the same evening my show with Ed opens in Durham, I also have a show of my paintings opening in Hillsborough at the Hillsborough Arts Council Gallery from 6-9pm on Aug. 31. When it rains it pours! I plan to spend the first 2 hours at the opening in Hillsborough and then scoot over to Durham for the last 2 hours of the opening there. Hope to see some of you one place or the other!

Sails and Spars, Stormy Weather and Settling Seas

August will be a busy month for me. Going to the beach with family, school will get started again, AND I have 2 shows opening on the same night. Only I could manage that!

My husband Ed and I are working on an installation for the Carrack Modern in Durham. The reception will be on Friday, Aug. 31 from 7-10pm and will run through Thursday, Sept 6.

This is my first installation, though Ed has done several. We will be incorporating lots of sails, video and sound to create an impression of our marina on the Neuse River. It is a beautiful place, very peaceful and a great subject for our installation. Boats and water have been present in my work for some time now, so this fits in with my themes perfectly. Ed's work deals with sculptural constructions using natural objects so his hands on experience is coming in handy.

We hope you can join us for the ephemeral experience!
