  • Phenomenal Woman painting excepted into show in North Carolina...

    I am so excited that one of my 'Learning to be a Phenomenal Woman' paintings was excepted into Hotel Hadley Studio's upcoming show 'Energy'. "The show is envisioned as an exhibition of artwork reflecting on Energy, in all its glorious forms, and an opportunity to educate about alternative energy resources in Chatham County, the pros/cons of current energy sources, including information on hydro-fracturing and the future of natural gas. We will be partnering with NC WARN and others for this event66. There are many definitions to the word and we encourage artists to consider expanded interpretations. One can look at Energy as fuel for our electricity and cars, Energy as caloric and biochemical fuel for our bodies and minds, or Energy that fuels our soul through the momentum of human and nature interactions. " This is the piece that was selected, Learning to be a Phenomenal Woman #6, Balancing Time and Energy. The show will open July 15, 2011.
