During the 11th International Encaustic Conference in Provincetown, MA in early June 2017, I will have work exhibited in three gallery shows. Photosynthesis, a show I co-curated with Sherrie Posternak, will be exhibited at the Julie Heller East Gallery. This show features 6 artists who combine photography and encaustic in a wide variety of ways to enhance their messages. I was also juried into an exhibit at the Castle Hill Center for the Arts in North Truro, Sense of Place, where I will be showing two new fabric and encaustic sculptures. At the Adam Peck Gallery I was invited to participate in a show title Black Tie (Optional). Just click on the gallery names to be connected to links about these exhibits. Going to be a wonderful time........!

I am delighted to announce that my work is featured on several pages in a new book on cold wax medium techniques by Rebecca Crowell and Jerry McLaughlin. Eagerly anticipated, this text is the first comprehensive book devoted to using this popular art material and it's already created quite a buzz.
