My work was featured on a couple of awesome books this year, for anyone looking for books to curl up with in the coming winter:

This has been a busy and trying summer and autumn! Lots of cool projects and some terrible colds and allergies! here’s the sum up of recent news:
The solo show at Zg Gallery has been extended to the end of October, so if you are around Chicago and haven’t been to see the show, be sure to stop by and say hi to Ms. Sheehy and Ms. Casis if you get a chance. They have an updated book from the show you can see here.
In Ohio right now I am or will be showing in a few different places:
I am in the Cleveland Arts Prize Winners Collaborative over at Convivium 33, a beautiful space in a renovated church located at 1433 East 33rd Street. The show features current and past Cleveland Arts Prize winners, so I am in great company. It runs until October 25, 2009
I am in a group show called Terra Non Firma featuring some great artists working with the landscape in one form or another:Hilary Aurand, Judith Brandon, Jerry Birchfield, Kristin Bly, Andy Curlowe, Peter Gent, Megan Herwig, Jess Langley, Mark Keffer, Matt Kolodziej, Christine McCullough, Josh Rex, Alex Tapie and Douglas Max Utter.
The show is a collaboration between east and west Cleveland as Legation, a gallery at 1300 West 78th St. joins forces with Front Room Gallery located at 3615 Superior Avenue 4203A and is open through Nov 28, with a closing reception on the 28th from 6-9pm
I am in a show with my friend Judith Brandon at Bayarts Gallery in Bay Village where I am showing mostly etchings and a couple of paintings and Judy is showing her beautiful paintings. The show is open until Oct 31.
In November, I will be showing some of these prints at the Massillon Museum in Massillon, Ohio along with some fellow Zygote Press Members. The exhibition focuses on women printmakers producing art as part of printmaking cooperatives. The show runs Nov 1- January 3. Speaking of Zygote, don’t forget their benefit Art oberfest on Oct 30.
I am also gearing up for my first solo show with Michael Rosenthal which should be opening January 16th.
In other news, I will be included in the Midwest issue of New American Paintings #83 and my painting ‘Dangling’ is actually on the cover.
