The Tenth Anniversary Exhibit

This year the Lafayette Gallery is celebrating it's ten year anniversary! The Gallery is currently showing a special exhibit titled, "Ten Years at the Lafayette Gallery". In addition, the Orinda Library will be showing an exhibit of work by current and past members of the gallery in honor of our ten year anniversary. There will also be a public reception at the Orinda Library on Sept. 10th to celebrate the occasion! Everyone is welcome, please come!
In the gallery, several of my small still life paintings are now on display. On Tuesday I will bring my monoprint, "Veronica at the Garden Party", to the Orinda Library for hanging. This monoprint was done last year, on a 22 X 30 sheet of printmaking paper. The red dress is rice paper that has been attached using chine colle.
For most of the past year I've concentrated on my small still life painting, which I love doing. Printmaking has been put on the back burner. This monoprint reminds me of how much fun printmaking is. I hope to be able to get back to Sherry's studio this fall to make some more of these monoprints.
In the meantime, I am so happy to be part of the Lafayette Gallery, and am looking forward to our upcoming anniversary celebration!

Nancy I love your monoprints. You have encouraged me to put some of my collage pieces on my blog. I love working with this type of format, so different from still lives and landscape. It feeds the soul. You are an inspiration! Keep it up!
