marabou stork feathers and cutouts ready for installation at the bainbridge Island Museum of Art

For the past three months I have been excitedly getting ready for the opening of my solo show at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art. From Seattle, take the ferry to Bainbridge Island and walk to the museum. It’s free.

 March 11th  through June 4th. artist talk Sunday March 19 3:pm . meet the artist 1:pm March 25, May 7, and May 21.

Find more details on my website and the museum’s.

The museum will display 46 pieces, some not yet seen in public and some from private collections.  It is not a sales event although people can purchase some of the art from me directly during the show as long as they agree to loan the art to the museum through May.

I am especially excited for the three large installations. At  6 to 12 feet, they are installed on walls with no protective glass. I spent a good part of December cutting the many birds for this. Above is the result of my cutting efforts for one of the installations.
