The 10th annual “100 Artists” show at the Mary Lou Zeek Gallery opens next week, with the “celebration” being first Wednesday, February 1st at the gallery.
I’ve had a piece in most of these 10 shows, and it’s always fun. This year artists were paired randomly and asked to communicate with each other and find a foothold in that communication to build a small piece. My “penpal” sent a list of the alphabet with all the words filled in except the letter F…so naturally (being more than a little contrary) I did not take the 25 ideas she gave me, but chose the blank word to fill in my own idea…hence the title “The F Word.” I’ve been thinking about forests and fires a lot this year, hence my idea was formed…the piece is collage, acrylic and wax on panel, and is four- 6″ squares (which could be arranged in a line, or anyway at all). Here’s how I’ve arranged them:
The show will be up for a month…bids in silent auction style are being taken,…you can look on line or, better yet, go down to the gallery and see it “in the flesh”!!!
