POSTS: There were a couple of great posts. One at Beautiful/Decay.  Thank you.  And, another by a fabulous collector/lady I like:  The highlight of my day.

SHOW: (so) Much (too) little, shared with Gala Bent and Sharon Arnold,  was at Northwind Arts Center.

About a year ago NAC invited me to have a show with them.  They asked that it be a two or three person show and I immediately began thinking about who I would like to invite.  Gala and Sharon came to mind quickly and I can’t say how delighted I am that the both agreed.  Our work is not immediately visually similar, which is exactly what I wanted for this show.  The places where we  overlap lies below and is rich territory:  repetition, pattern, and a reach for balance of geometry and control with fluid natural phenomenon is present in all of our work.  This is spiced with a serious crush on science and the approach of asking or why/how/what do we do and where do with do it, plus a healthy dose of storytelling.
