Osmotic Radiance

Public Space One’s art auction this year was Osmotic Radiance.

I contributed this glassy resin paint petal piece..
and instead of Mustard-In-Law’s annual tape box set, we made a special VHS tape..
and the auction was exhibited in Film Scene’s very long windowfront..
and Mustard-In-Law performed virtually for the closing reception!

At the gig, Mustard-In-Law performed in the TV studio, in front of an audience, and live streaming on PATV’s YouTube channel.  We played with a green screen behind us, and brought an appropriate video to key in….

The busiest day of my life.

Three exhibits featuring my work all occurred at the same time within a block of each other, coincidentally during both the Iowa Arts Festival and the Iowa City First Friday Gallery Walk.
• Textiles women’s clothing store is showing a full array of my paintings and collages for 3 months.
• Iowa Artisans Gallery has a postcard-sized exhibit with a few of my pieces included.
• Blick Art Materials had an employee show, with even more creations from my hands.
