It has been a glorious summer here in Charlottesville, so far. Although I no longer have school-age kids, I still love the slower pace during the summer months. Its a perfect time for finishing things up, as well as planning ahead.
The summer exhibits that featured my work are finished, and I am pleased by how successful the two events were. Quercus alba, was part of the spectacular show Hello Hedi, at 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland, OR. The book found a happy home with a private collector, but it is part of a variable edition of three, so there are two additional copies available. If you are interested you can find more information about the book and how to order it here. I already covered the The Sacred Threads exhibit in Herndon, Virginia in an earlier post, but even after the closing of the show I have received compliments and comments regarding Reverence/dogwood. I am grateful to have been part of both of these events.
Most importantly the slow summer schedule has allowed me plenty of studio time. I am experimenting with new methods to make my work more 3-dimensional, and testing new print techniques. I am also finishing up some pieces that have been laying in wait. I am quite pleased with the results of it all.
