I’m thrilled to show five new rabbit paintings at this lovely gallery in Olympia. Most art galleries fold within just four years, so Childhood’s End Gallery’s 45th Anniversary is really something special. Please join me in celebrating the birthday of this gem of a space.
Olympia only does an art walk twice a year, and it’s a very lively affair that’s well worth the trip for you Seattle folks, especially if you’ve never been.
Three of the paintings are formal miniature portraits fitted into antique frames. I’ve been holding on to these frames for a few years, and I think I’ve found just the right images to fill them. Take a look below and I hope you’ll agree!
Portrait of a Gentleman, oil on copper, 5” x 5” (framed)
Portrait of a Lady, oil on copper, 5” x 5” (framed)
Portrait of an Orphan, , oil on aluminum, 5 ½ ” x 5 ½ ” (framed)
Though the theme of “shadowbox” seems specific, the work will be extremely varied in subject matter and the use of materials (from taxidermy to crochet and everything in between). The exhibition features more than thirty local & national female-identifying artists. I’m looking forward to seeing my paintings displayed in such a diverse context and I hope some of you locals out there can make it! Here’s the Facebook Invite.
The artist reception is from 5:00 – 9:00 during Capitol Hill’s Second Thursday Artwalk on August 13th. Show is open August 13th – September 3rd, 2015.
