back to school

Five artists and I will be traveling to an Asheville workshop, Directed Individual Study, with our art mentor and coach, Steve Aimone, of Aimone Art Services. Please check out Steve's website to learn more about his programs: Steve 's book, DESIGN! A Lively Guide to Design Basics for Artists & Craftspeople (Lark), is a must-read for those intrigued by and exploring principles of design in all media. His second book, Live & Learn: Expressive Drawing (AARP) is forthcoming.

Among those artists travelling to NC will be Fran Gardner, Professor of Art and Art History at the University of South Carolina. Fran and I will be joining forces with a third artist, Cheryl Bogdanowitsch of Orlando, to conduct a 3-artist show at the Harris Gallery, Art League of Daytona Beach, 433 S. Palmetto, during March of 2010. Fran and I are looking forward to this time to collaborate and work with one another for this themed exhibit. Fran, I and Cheryl have been identified as artists of note who work within a cruciform format. Whether those compositional themes continue in a piece is another question.

Also joining us for this retreat are Melissa Mason (, Judy Gilmer (, Karlene McConnell (, and Charlie Cipes.

Welcome to my blog! I've created this spot to keep you updated on upcoming events.

First a little shameless boasting: Caesura took the Distinguished Artist Award at the 2009 Annual Members' Show at the Artists' Workshop Gallery in New Smyrna Beach. That exhibit will continue until 2/27 at the Gallery, 115 Canal St., NSB. Ahh Summertime, a small mixed media piece, took 2nd Place in the annual members' show during ArtFest at the Maitland Art Center, on Packwood Ave. in Maitland. Although that exhibit comes down in about a week, a trip to MAC is always worthwhile. Count on touring serene gardens, lovely galleries, interesting artists' workshops and work rooms, and a great gift shop.

Please save some dates: in March, I will be featured in a solo show at the Artisan Inn & Gallery, 215 S. Woodland Ave. - 2nd Fl, De Land, FL. A reception date for this show will be held on the evening of Friday, March 6th. In April, I will also be the featured artist in a show at Orlando Museum of Art's Museum Shop Gallery. That exhibit opens on April 2nd, during First Thursday, and will remain up for a month. Stay tuned for further information regarding demonstrations/discussions, etc.
