I am showing 3 decorative large fabric cut panels in the Womentide exhibiton.

Women's art work continues to be undervalued, overlooked and under-represented simply because the work is created by a woman. In fact, even if a female artist's work is cast into the limelight as a "rediscovery" such as Bonheur, Gentileschi, Scipio Moorhead or Alma Thomas, it soon is forgotten once again. Are female artists "getting their turn" as the New York Times proclaimed in 2016? In this exhibit we are celebrating female artists by dedicating our gallery not to women's work, but powerful work created by women who refuse to be overlooked.

Ribbon Meditations Exhibiton

“Ribbon Meditations" is a site-specific installation designed for the Narthex Gallery in St. Peter’s Church in New York City. The work's genesis was the “Support our Troops” ribbon-shaped car magnets that became ubiquitous during the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. As the symbol was adopted for other causes and became cultural shorthand, I began tracing and experimenting with various designs using the ribbon shape to create mixed media paintings. I decided not to add color to the ribbons, leaving the interpretation open. I then explored working with large rolls of printmaking paper, cutting the looping shapes of the ribbons into the paper creating lacy screens, wall hangings and sculptures. At the end, I gathered the cut out pieces and sewed them into delicate patterned, sculptural strips that respond to movement in the air. The materials and patterns evoke the decorative art movement and reflect a feminine sensibility. The work employs shifting light and shadow and positive and negative space. The installation combines the forms that I experimented with using the symbolic ribbon shape and places them in the sanctuary's lobby gallery, keeping in mind the church’s mission as a place of hospitality and welcome, a moral space.
