Icons + Altars 2009

I am showing a piece in Icons + Altars, an annual benefit exhibition for the New Art Center in Newton, MA, which opens today. A very cool show (which kindly splits the proceeds 50/50 with the artists). You can view the entire exhibit on line and find out more about how to purchase an artwork here.

It's fun to see what the participating artists have made in response to the theme of this small-works show, which is interpretation of an "icon" or "altar."

The work I entered, "Berry Lines," (10 inches square) is shown below. I always think of Christmas and holidays at this time of year, so I usually make a piece that contains this "holiday red." I've been a participant for the past 7 years.
