Brushed at The Compound Gallery
Another absolute thrill is the inclusion of my piece, Pandemic Playground, in the Brushed exhibition, curated by Courtney Cerruti at The Compound Gallery in Emeryville, CA. I saw the call for this one, when my friend Jennifer Wilkin Penick posted about the piece she submitted (and it was accepted as well!) and pulled out a piece that I had worked on closer to the beginning of the pandemic with cardboard from grocery deliveries. It looked a little bland, but had a paintbrush in it, so I added a bunch of bright, cheery colors and, of course, some dots. It was fun to package it up and send it all the way across the country. I made a boxing up video here.
Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it out there for the show, so if you are in the area, please go and take pictures for me! If you send them to my email (you can subscribe here), I will post on Instagram!
