2016 Bank of the Arts National Juried Exhibition - accepted

Accepted- I love that word. Friday I received an email that my piece "shake shake shake I and II- lenticular" was selected. The juror of this show is Dr. Larry Wheeler Director of the NC Museum of Art. This piece was also in the Ft. Worth Regional show @arstpace111 juried by Eric Lee Director of the kimball museum. This time the call for entry was national. It will be on exhibit in the historic city of New Bern, the first colonial capital of North Carolina and a tourist destination.  The show will be used as visual imagery for dialogue between literary and visual arts.   It is a collaboration with PulitzerNC:  The power of words. 

I would love for someone to write a poem about my piece.  

The exhibit will be at Bank of the Arts

my artist statement for the body of work that shake shake shake I and II lenticular is a part of; 

Easter of 2015 - grateful to have both kids in town we decided to go to the Buffalo Bayou Dog Park - all of us. My son Griffin took a slow mo video of our elderly Labrador Kitty. Kitty loved the dog park and would retrieve tennis balls from the pond like she was a two-year-old pup. She would consistently drop the ball at your feet and as you would bend over to pick it up shake all the water off her coat right on to all those standing near by. My son’s video inspired my “shake shake shake” body of work. 


This  body of work  expresses energy, movement, and Contagious joy. It includes several drawings, life size wire sculptures and lenticular prints.
