XX Chromosome opens TONIGHT!

It's All About the Numbers 02
12x12 inches, mixed media on canvas, 2009

Last year, I was approached by artist Tuesday Schmidt about being in an all-women show sometime in early 2009. Needless to say, I don't know where the time went but that sometime is NOW! XX Chromosome, curated by Tuesday, is an exhibition highlighting the value of the feminine hand in art. XX Chromosome will showcase nine local female artists practicing in a variety of mediums including photography, illustration, painting, mixed media, textiles and sculpture.

Although I was unable to complete one of my larger pieces for the show, I'm pretty happy with the pieces I've included. The above piece, It's All About the Numbers 02, came together while I was working on another piece called ROBOTHUMAN. To see this and other pieces, check out my flickr page.

Hi Maura,

Sorry I missed the opening. Life is upside down here right now and I am completely out of touch with the real world. Will get to town to see your pieces. Love the painting on your blog. Good luck with the show.
