This week our all female show titled Arraigada opens! Arraigada means "rooted" in spanish and it has become a descriptive word we (meaning Daniela Izaguirre, Carolyn Hepler-Smith, and I) use for women in our lives that are particularly "rooted" and special to us. We got some amazing submissions and the show is going to be fantastic. I finished my large piece a few weeks ago and it will be in the show. I will post photos once I get some good ones at the gallery. Its an interesting coincidence that so far all 3 of my paintings in my current series titled Consciousness are images based on trees and Carolyn suggested the title of the show be a spanish word for "rooted" without knowing that. The word describes the common threads in our work and it became the basic theme for the entire show.
So we are installing the show tonight (Wednesday) and the reception is Friday! I can't wait!
