On OPB Radio 2013

We (Call & Response) were interviewed by April Baer of Oregon Public Broadcasting about our Call & Response show last September.  The full interview was aired in early November 2013 on OPB radio, and here’s a link to an article based on the interview!

 

Call & Response 2013 “Call It Home”

We were invited back to the Giustina Gallery at LaSells.  Reception was Thursday, September 5, 2013, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., Gallery Talk at 7:00.
We all finished all 8 (EIGHT) of our pieces for this show, we “revealed” them to each other, and once again felt like it was Christmas in July – each response always feels like a gift from the Responder.  So much thought and care goes into each one, and the synergy is awesome in the real sense of the word when we see them all together.

Call and Response “And Then Some”

June 20 – July 31st, 2013  – MU Concourse Gallery, Oregon State University

This show featured all eight of the Call and Response Group and showcased our individual works, not our usual format but it did show off the wide range of talents in the group!  My personal showcase includes work from as far back as 2002, all the way up to last week, and I’ve got some of my sketchbooks open to favorite sketches also.

At DIVA in Eugene, 2012

The “Sharing Space: Selected Work from Fiber Arts Groups in Benton County, Oregon” exhibit was hosted in conjunction with a unique symposium Monday, October 29 – Saturday, November 3 at the Downtown Initiative for the Visual Arts (DIVA) in Eugene.  The Symposium is organized by CultureWork: A Periodic Broadside for Arts & Culture Workers and the Center for Community Arts & Cultural Policy at the University of Oregon.  I was invited by curator Liz Hoffman to show “Don’t Panic” as representative of my work with Arts in Healthcare for the Corvallis Arts Center – “Don’t Panic” is a collaboration with mosaic artist Ella Rhoades and spraypaint artist Ben Jay.

Oregon Water Ways – Giustina Gallery, 2012

The Giustina Gallery featured art about Oregon’s rivers and waters November 5 through December 19, 2012.  Two of my works were chosen for the exhibit, Mariner’s Compass, a classic Kerry from 2004, and Typhoon, a piece completed in 2007.  I wish I had a finished piece based on my dead fish sketch recently made at Finley Wildlife Refuge… but it wasn’t done, so I couldn’t submit it.  Based on how many of my works feature fish, and how many shows are interested in such topics, it will have a chance somewhere else I’m sure.
