EXHIBIT AT PLYMOUTH CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH
JANUARY 29 - MARCH 14, 2012

I have 23 pieces in this exhibit, including portraits, still lives, landscapes, and pieces combining pastel images and hand-set type. It is a wonderful gallery in a very progressive church that believes in the value of the arts. Exhibiting with me is Karen Searle, a fabulous fabric artist.

Plymouth Congregational Church is at the corner of Franklin and LaSalle in Minneapolis. The street address is 1900 NIcollet Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55403. (612) 871-7400.

This exhibit is called The Book as Art. Exhibiting with me will be Regula Russelle, winner of the 2011 Book Artist Award.

I will have three series of large pieces incorporating hand-set type with pastel painting. The image at right is from a new series interpreting Pattiann Rogers’ poem, “The Importance of the Whale in the Field of Iris.”

St. Matthew’s is located at 2136 Carter Avenue, St Paul MN 55108,
(651) 645-3058.

RHYTHMS OF DARKNESS AND LIGHT, GRAND MARAIS ART COLONY

MARCH 23 - APRIL 1, 2012

I’ll have one piece in this exhibit: the just-completed “Time for the Beaver” at left. The goal was to start with a landscape at dusk, the moment when light changes to darkness. There is a barely visible beaver coming toward shore, the beginning of the rhythms of darkness. The photo of a grandfather helping a grandson moves on to generational rhythms, and the planetary mobile takes everything to higher levels of space and time. At least that was the idea. I considered as my artist’s statement: Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

This will be my first experience at the Reif Center. I’ve heard good things about it and am looking forward to an exciting show.

This is a group show of work that somehow reflects the experience of being in Minnesota. I will have two or more pieces in this show.

VISION AND THE WORD

EAU CLAIRE REGIONAL ARTS CTR

This is a collaboration between visual

artists and poets. I will be one of the

Tere Hering. Should be fun.

JUST-COMPLETED LANDSCAPE . . .

NEAR HUNGRY JACK - 24X36 FRAMED

Very pleased with the way this turned out. Used the rough side of Canson Mi-Tientes paper, rather than the smooth side that I normally use. Created a sort of pointillistic effect and made it easier to use yellows, which tend to be smeary.
