I have three pieces included in a new group show at the Smalter Gallery in Kansas City, MO. “Small Art” features artwork in a variety of styles and mediums that are, well, small-ish. Several local artists are included in the show.
The Smalter Gallery is open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 1PM – 7PM, and by appointment.
“Small Art” opens Friday, November 12 and runs through December 31.

All of the pieces in this exhibit are collaborative works between two MoFA members. We were randomly paired, then asked to explore an element of art: line, color, shape, form, value, space, or texture. My partner, Amber R. Clifford-Napoleone, and I chose color for our element. I focused on the presence of color, and Amber focused on the absence of color. We were each to finish about half of a 10” x 10” piece, then ship it off to the other person to complete the piece.
Here are our completed pieces, hanging in the UCM gallery space (photo by University of Central Missouri):
One of the things I loved about this project was that Amber and I both interpreted “half of a 10” x 10” piece” very literally—we both sent 5” x 10” pieces to each other for finishing.
Counterpoints runs through January 30, 2021. You can see all the pieces in the exhibit here.

I’m excited to be a part of “The Smalter Gallery presents: The MoFA show, an exhibition of work by local fiber artists” at the Smalter Gallery in Kansas City, MO. My Earth Series is included in the show.
The Smalter Gallery is currently open by appointment only due to COVID-19. Please contact the gallery to schedule an appointment to see our work.
Because in-person viewing is a little more difficult at this time, we will have an online opening Friday, July 24, 2020 at 6PM. Information on that event is available on Facebook.

I have a piece in another show of tiny art. The pieces in 5 x 5 x 5 are even smaller than the ones in the Fun Sized Art show I was in earlier this month. As you may have guessed from the name of the show, all of the pieces in this exhibit are 25 square inches or less.
My work for this show is “Flowers by the Stream,” a gelatin print with embroidered and crocheted details. This piece will be on display at River Oaks Square Art Center in Alexandria, Louisiana through February 15, 2020. The opening reception is Friday, November 15, 2019 from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM.
Innovations in Textiles continues in the St. Louis area this month. I have a piece in “Between the Threads,” a national juried exhibition of works of fiber at Webster Arts. Webster Arts and Webster Fiber Arts aren’t related, and the similarity in our names made for fun times at FedEx when it was time to ship my piece.
My work for this exhibit is “Blooming.” The base of the piece is a gelatin print in acrylic on cotton. I used a dried up zinnia bloom in the printing process for this one, as well as some bubble wrap. I added embroidered and crocheted details with cotton floss.
“Blooming” will be on display at Webster Arts November 12 through December 20, 2019. The opening reception is Tuesday, November 12, 2019 from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM.
