I am very excited to be part of this show, as there were 170 entries, and of those twenty nine were accepted. If you are able to attend the reception this Saturday I would be happy to see you and grateful for the support. A big thank you to gallery director Joyce Pekala for inviting me to join the gallery committee.
"We Are All Made of Star Stuff" acrylic/canvas
On display at the city of Vista's Civic Gallery, February 22-April 3, 2014
Also, I just finished this piece, "¿Te Amo?" for a call for entry to female artists at the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach to be considered for virtual display for their upcoming exhibition, Frida Kahlo: Her Pictures. Accepted art will be projected digitally during the MOLAA's Annual Women's Day Festival on March 16, 2014.
I will know whether or not I am accepted into this show by February 28. I'm okay with it if my work isn't accepted, which is why I am sharing it here on my blog. I love Frida! She is such an inspiring character and artist. I feel lucky to have randomly stumbled upon an exhibition of her work in Ponce, Puerto Rico a few years ago with my friend Melissa. Cross your fingers for me!!
