ImageImageI just got into a show called “Scapes.” What an evocative title.  Cityscapes, landscapes, seascapes, escapes, mindscapes, bodyscapes . .  but for me it was a no brainer. As I pound the pavement day after day, 10,000 steps worth, I catch a glimpse of an interesting railing, an awning, a roofline, an abstract shape, or interesting textures. I got two pieces in the show, Walkabout and Pink Wall. The opening is tomorrow, Saturday, Sept 15 at Panza gallery, Millvale, 5-8 PM.

 

Trinity Gallery opens today after their annual summer vacation.  Dan and Tina Gaser, the kind and meticulous owners, are ready for a new season. This year they insisted all artists they represent must bring NEW work for hanging in the back room, so I brought three new pieces. They are at 4747 Hatfield Street. Here is one piece I have there now, Crossing the Tracks.

I just found out that this piece sold from the Shop at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. I was thrilled, because its the first sale from my current body of work that reflected my 10,000 steps a day. Just walking, walking, walking, and really lookingImage at the pleasing shapes, shadows, and textures of my neighborhood.

I’ve been mulling over how to compose these pieces the best to get my ideas across.  This one was simple, as it was one image that was well composed as a photo. Combining images, along with found objects and different fabrics, is turning out to be a bit more difficult. I will post when I make more progress with that part!
