Artist Talks & Auction this weekend!

As we go into the end of the year and count all the stuff we're supposed to, I just wanted to say....thankfully this has been a very busy year in the studio. Below are 3 opportunities to check out the some of the results of all the hard work.

Sparkplug, the artist collective I belong to has a show up right now at DC Arts Center; our incredibly awesome sponsoring non-profit gallery and theatre, who I am eternally thankful to for such a great idea of sponsoring a collective in the first place! We will be discussing our new work and how working with a group of artists and curators influences our studio practices this coming Sunday.
