The Brain Initiative Moves to the University of Chicago Medical Facilities


Artists had submitted pieces investigating how 
our minds work, 
where thinking comes from, what is the origin 
of consciousness.

It is not only scientists who can shed light 
on how our minds 
function - artists can also do so.


The exhibit goes from 11/1 thru 2/10/15

Chicago University  (DCAM) 

2nd floor corridor link & (CCD)

5758 S. Maryland

New Venue


Soon many of the pieces in "The Brain-Art Initiative" will be moving from its current location, the Beverly Arts Center, to The University of Chicago Medical Facility.

 This is the first time I'll have work in a university medical facility and I'm very excited. 




This is the piece that will be traveling onto the University. It's multi threads on fiberglass mesh, machine stitched. It received 3rd place. 

Brain MRI
Lia Cook also had a piece in the show, receiving 1st Place. You can see it below:

A Great Pleasure

Change of Plans

It was a great pleasure meeting Tom Lundberg last night. Unfortunately, I have no photos of the meeting nor of his lecture, The Language of Textiles: Fiber in Contemporary Art, but it was such a pleasure to meet and talk about textiles, processes & art.

As part of the CCAI program featuring textiles in my show, Silk & Sinew & a show at their neighboring facility, the BRIC, Tom presented a through overview of textiles throughout the centuries to the present.

As a professor of textiles in the MFA textile program at the Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado, Tom Lundberg offers students not only a wide variety of experiences with textiles & their processes, but a broader knowledge of textiles in art. 

But better yet, Tom inspires his students to create thought provoking works of art, as Sara Rockinger's work:

Finally, here's some photos from my show, Silk & Sinew sponsored & funded by CCAI. It's a wonderful gallery space with grand natural light & very tall ceilings.





Check out their site & my Facebook page for more photos. Thanks.

My New Solo Show

Last year I was lucky enough to be introduced to Sharon Rosse and Glenn Clemmer. They visited my studio and offered me a show sponsored by the Capital City Arts Initiative. I'm so excited about this show! It will feature some of my silk florals and body imaging.

One of the grand things CCAI offers besides a great venue to show your work, is an essay written by an expert in your field. I was so fortunate to have Sara Rockinger write my essay. Watch for it to appear on my website.

Hope you can join me, Friday, Sept. 26th, 5-7 pm. If not, hope you can pop in or view some photos I'll post later.
