Art and the Word - Exhibition at Northwind Gallery

Art and the Word - Exhibition at Northwind Gallery until October 27, 2014

Three of my images from the series, 'Touching Ground' are included in the exhibition.  The words were created from white cotton gloves laid out the land.  The white bird is also made of the same kind of gloves in a more solid form...she often goes goes on walks with me...wanting to fly in particular locations.

These pieces are encaustic photographs on wood panels with which I've been experimenting.  Working with the wax - the heat and fire...reminds me of the alchemical nature in the origin of photographs as well as my own experience of many years working in photographic darkrooms watching the magic of an image slowly materialize in a tray of liquid.

These pieces are on exhibit exhibit at Northwind Gallery in Port Townsend until October 27.  On Oct. 19 at 1pm there will be a presentation by the juror, Alan Newberg, who is a full-time artist maintaining a studio in Bremerton, Washington and is a founding member of the Collective Visions Gallery. 
I look forward to his talk and would love to see you there.

In case you can't make it to the exhibit, you can see the images below.
