The Whirlwind Fall of 2022

September was an awesome month full of amazing art happenings for me. November, as it turns out, is also shaping up to be an absolutely thrilling month. I'm not sure where to start so I'll start with the Women United ART PRIZE for 2022. I received the exciting news of making the longlist in mid October and then the shortlist at the end of October. And then, I was absolutely speechless when the finalists were announced and my name was in the 1st Place spot for the Collage and Fiber Art category. I'm still in shock. The artists on the list are all incredibly talented and I am so honored to be a part of it. A huge thank you to Mona Lerch, founder of the Women United ART MOVEMENT, which hosts the Women United ART PRIZE. And, of course, many thanks to the jurors for this year's prize: Gita Joshi of The Curator's Salon, Sasha-Loriene a visual artist and founder of Black Girls Who Paint, Lexi Laine an Underwater Fine Art Photographer, and Victoria J. Fry a painter and founder of the Visionary Art Collective. Here is a screenshot from the announcement reel on Instagram:

Another amazing thing for November is the inclusion of two of my works in the Bits and Pieces show at Falls Church Arts. The juror for this show was Sherry Trachtman - thank you for including my pieces: Long Haul and Bits and Pieces. I worked on both of these, one assemblage and the other one mixed media on canvas, specifically for this show. It was fun to get outside my usual collage wheelhouse and try some new things.

And, to top it all off, I have two pieces going up at Dominion Lighting on Langston Blvd in Arlington, VA as a part of a show entitled Winter Light. This show will run from November 28th to January 27th with a closing reception at a date yet TBD. I was invited to apply to this show after participating in the Arlington Visual Art Studio Tour in September, which was an all around amazing experience. So, if you are in the area, swing by and visit these two pieces:

I have a few more things in the works, but will wait to fill you in on the rest until I have more specifics and visuals. I am so thankful to everyone who has supported and encouraged me to take my art making from the studio out into the world. It is scary to share something so personal as your art practice but even one connection made makes it worthwhile. xo, m
