In 2012 I went to Fort Bragg, California, to make art with my friend artist Carolyn Schneider, and to put up a show called “Art Laundry” at the Lost Coast Culture Machine Gallery.  We had fun, worked hard, and the show was a success and held over for another month.  Carolyn discovered her latent desire to iron in public, I had a great time drawing, sewing, etc.  I made the “Shrine to Plaid”…

..and put up drawings, quilts, monoprints.  This year Carolyn is coming to Salem and together we are going to make an installation called “Art Laundry 2″…as part of SAlem Art Association’s Project Space 2015…

We’ll be setting up shop at 211 NE Commercial Street from August 24-September 4, with the “opening” on Wednesday, September 2nd.  We intend to draw, cut, sew, wash, dry, mend, iron, fold and repeat.  We hope to consider art work and women’s work, and the space between.  Public ironing will occur daily from 1-2…come see us.
