BIG INK

I was excited to participate with my daughter Alyssa in Big Ink at the Duxbury

Art Museum…. a fun filled day of giant prints professionally printed by Lyle Castonguay

the event was a blast with great musical accompaniment.

nexUS a collaborative accordion book

It was a fun challenge and great experience to work collaboratively with Barbara Ford Doyle, Mary Doering and Alan Trugman on this 3-D book. I loved how it changed, evolved and grew from its first inception. It went on to be accepted into the exhibition Connectivity at the Attleboro Museum of Art and then again to be shown again in an international show In Tandem at the Cape Museum. nexUS is more than the sum of its parts!

It is coming closer to the installation of the collaborative

exhibition.  SEVEN at the Cape Cod Museum of Art……

watch for details…….

The prints balance various shapes and forms suggesting the elements.  The inspiration goes back to a trip to Pompeii many years ago. Having once been a potter, I have been always enthralled by the beautiful shapes of the vessels I saw in Pompeii, evidence of lost generations and time passing.
