I was asked to create an artist book for a show at our cute little Main Street Art Center here in Ephraim. It's called the Granary Art Center (click for link). I was so flattered and excited to be a part of it! They even used one of my images for the show advertising:
|My Mom, Dad, older sister and I, circa. 1971 (I was almost 2) with our plane Charlie Cherokee.|
Here are some pictures of the opening.
|My name on the wall.|
|My family and I by my work.|
|Awesome A and I.|
|Me, visiting with friends at the show.|
|For part of the show upstairs you could make your own 3X3" work and take some else's home.|
|Here's Little C and Princess P checking out one of mine. I had my classes participate.|
|My work- 'Trip Scrolls, ca. 1971-2014'|
The scrolls are all photos of trips or vacations I have been on throughout my life printed on Kozo rice paper. I love the way a turned out. One of the few art works I've made that I was able to create exactly a work identical to the one in my head.
