The Expedition and Beyond: a video sneak preview.

Greetings! As I mentioned in my previous post, things are gearing up for the April exhibition at Principle Gallery - "The Expedition and Beyond." Participating artist Terry Strickland has created the following video preview of the show, a collection of work by 13 artists who painted and lived together for a week in November 2010 on Sullivan's Island, South Carolina (just outside of Charleston). Enjoy the video:

On Expedition!

I'm happy to announce that the kind folks at Principle Gallery will be hosting an exhibition opening just two months from now, including works inspired by the Charleston, SC painting expedition I participated in with 11 other wonderful artists in November 2010! More information on the painting expedition can be found at this link - and some preliminary information on the upcoming exhibition "On Expedition" can be found at this link.

The artists on the 2010 expedition have developed and maintained strong connections during and since the trip; the friendships and comraderie fostered by the trip have inspired an ongoing dialogue about life, painting, and women's role in contemporary representational art.

The painting below is one I will have in the show, stay tuned for more!
