Michael David Residency at David&Schweitzer Contemporary, Brooklyn, NY - during Bushwick Open Studios September 2018
50th Anniversary Celebration
Shown: SHIELD, fiber, paper, encaustic, 10 x 8 x 3 inches, 2017
I'm pleased to share that I have been invited to exhibit during the annual International Encaustic Conference in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Provincetown has garnered national attention for its history as an art colony. The theme of the show is a play on words about keeping it real -- featuring what's fresh, happening and exciting in the world of contemporary artists incorporating encaustic and cold wax into their practice.
I am part of this group show that opened April 19, 2018 at Seattle's longstanding artist studios in Ballard. Here's a shot of my pieces installed. I took it in panoramic mode on my iPhone which explains the distortion!
Such an opportunity to exhibit side-by-side with work by and about women
Opening Reception: March 15, 2018 from 5-7:30 p.m.
Looking forward to teaching at FEAST in Tacoma, WA

Looking forward to showing with a great roster of artists. We were invited to use Eileen Fisher clothing, chop it up, and make a piece of art work from the fabric. This is a new piece called ORIFICE.
Love her coverage about lots of great work being made

Presence / Absence
Artworks by Andrea Benson, Jef Gunn, Deborah Kapoor, Brenda Mallory, Martha Pfanschmidt, Joan Stuart Ross, Andrea Schwartz-Feit, and Kirk Weller
Eight artists working in a diverse manner but with encaustic as a unifying material explore the idea of what is and what is not, what remains and what is lost. For some of them this is a metaphor, and for others it is the basis of their practice. This show will be curated by Martha Pfanschmidt.
