While my primary goal this month is to barracade myself in the studio so I can finish the current drawing, I do have to venture out...I am starting the new year off with quite a few exhibitions up and down the East Coast; two in New Jersey, two in Alexandria, Virginia, and one in Jacksonville Florida. Please drop by if you are near any of the shows:
Fears and Phobias Target Gallery at the Torpedo Factory, Alexandria, Virginia
January 12 - February 19
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 12th 6 - 8 PM
"A timely exhibit that explores the theme of fears and phobias. Some of the work is introspective and personal, while others express these issues in a larger social context. " (Artwork by fellow South Orange artist Jennifer Takahashi is also featured in this exhibit).
From What I Remember, From What I Forget
Principle Gallery, Alexandria, Virginia
Opening Reception: Friday, January 20th 6:30 - 9 PM

Mad Hatter Party & Opening Reception: Friday, February 3rd 5 - 8 PM
"A diverse selection of works range from illustrations based closely on Carroll’s text,
to works which allude more subtly to the original story, offering new and sometimes challenging
interpretations. Imagery relates to the multitude of themes found in Carroll’s stories."
And, last but not least...(what is it with me and Alice?)
University of North Florida Gallery of Art, Jacksonville, Florida
February 3 - March 2
Closing Reception: March 1, 2012
“The Dormouse had closed its eyes by this time, and was going off into a doze; but, on being pinched by the Hatter, it woke up again with a little shriek, and went on: `--that begins with an M, such as mouse-traps, and the moon, and memory, and muchness-- you know you say things are "much of a muchness"--did you ever see such a thing as a drawing of a muchness?'"
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland.
