Renowned critic Saltz judges ‘colorful’ 57th Chautauqua Annual Exhibition. Read about the exhibition and my piece in the show in this article which appeared in the Chautauquan Daily, on June 20, 2014.

Gate also earned an Honorable Mention from Jerry Saltz and at the opening reception, when asked to comment on my piece he said, "I love it, I love it, I gave it a mention." Made my day.

Whitney Biennial 2014

I was happily surprised that as I walked through the 4th floor of the 2014 Whitney Biennial, my friend and I commented to each other that we could not believe it, but we were interested in everything. I appreciated the curatorial perspective of Michelle Grabner. I found a strong personal connection to her focus on the artists' hand, handmade objects, tactile materials and rich color. It was really significant to see so many women and artists from the Midwest represented.

2014 Garland Calendar

Added on by Heidi Leitzke.

I recently enjoyed the laborious process of creating this edition of hand-printed silkscreen calendars. I hand painted the design on vellum and then transferred the images to screens which I printed in 3 colors, over the course of several days, on a variety of acid-free artisan paper. Many thanks to Eileen for her printing expertise and for allowing me to use her print-shop.

If you are looking for a decorative way to remember the date, this is the calendar for you. Click on the calendar to see all of the paper color options.

Priced at $28 this is the perfect gift for yourself and a friend.
