I am excited to be showing in TONDO, opening this week at Talon Gallery in Portland, OR.

Curated by Spoke Art and Talon Gallery, TONDO, is a group exhibition featuring over 40 artists working in the round.

Tondo has historically referred to a round painting or low-relief sculpture, derived from the Italian rotondo or “round.” Working in a range of styles and media, the participating artists used a circular surface as a starting point to create unique works with no thematic constraint.

Artists include:

Amy Ruppel • Andrew McIntosh • Alexander Fjelnseth • Allison May Kiphuth • Amory Abbott • Christian Castañeda • Christina Mrozik • Helday De La Cruz • Ivan Salcido • Brin Levinson • Jeremy Fish • Josie Morway • Katy Harrald • Keith Carter • Kevin Sloan • Kim Slate • Ryan Berkley • Maia Boakye • Matt Linares • Morgaine Faye • Neil M. Perry • Ryan Bubnis • Sally Deng • Tim Karpinski • Adam Caldwell • Alex Garant • Allison Reimold • Amy Sol • Evan B. Harris • Casey Weldon • Caitlin McCormack • Frank Gonzalez • Glenn Arthur • Jessica So Ren Tang • Kelsey Beckett • Sergio Garcia • MC Marquis • Matt Ritchie • Jose Mertz • Miles Ritchie • Reuben Negron • Sam Wolfe Connelly • Yumiko Kayukawa • Peter Adamyan • Abigail Goldman

Erotica Asheville: A Benefit For WNCAP

Last year, in an interview with Metro Asheville, I remarked how eager I was to see how my work would be received once I started showing in North Carolina. Well, it looks I’ll get my chance. I am happy to announce that I will be showing a handful of drawings and paintings, both new and old, from my ongoing series Dirty Dirty Love as part of Erotica Asheville, opening February 26th at The Satellite Gallery in downtown Asheville. 

Erotica Asheville is the brainchild of Advocacy Through the Arts, who’s mission is to raise funds and awareness for the Western North Carolina AIDS Project (WNCAP) while creating a platform for thoughtful and considerate conversation about sexuality and sexual responsibility. This year’s event showcases work by eight Asheville-area artists and photographers and is hosted by The Satellite Gallery, located at 55 Broadway St., across the street from the Black Mountain College Museum and Arts Center. The opening is Friday, February 26th, from 7-10pm and will remain on view through the weekend. Donations for WNCAP will be accepted at the door. 

The Western North Carolina AIDS Project is dedicated to preventing new cases of HIV/AIDS and promoting self-sufficiency in people living with HIV. WNCAP provides HIV-related client support, prevention, education and advocacy activities guided by the belief that all people are entitled to equal access to health care and disease prevention.

I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Erica Jagger of A Sexy Woman Of A Certain Age, a website focused on boomer women, sex and culture. You can check out our conversation HERE where we discuss censorship, the origins of Dirty Dirty Love, and the importance of talking about sex at any age.

Back in December, I was fortunate enough to have one of my watercolors (above) featured in the tenth issue of Rooms Magazine. This month I have the pleasure of sharing a candid interview with Rooms Magazine's very own, Rhiannon M. Kirkland. We chatted about my past work, up coming projects, and the lessons of high school theater. You can check out the interview HERE.
