Weekly Update

It's been a while but I am going to TRY to get back to a regular posting schedule thins week...we'll see...!

Current Exhibitions

I currently have a piece in the Fleisher Art Memorial Faculty Show...I haven't had a chance to see the show yet, but many fabulous artists work there so I'm sure it will be wonderful!

Step Right Up...

Vagabond Boutique
37 N. 3rd Street

Philadelphia, PA
Opening Reception: Friday, September 4th 6-8pm

The My Face in your Space show at Nexus is a pretty cool idea. To be included in the show, someone who's already in the show asks you to do a portrait of them and they do one of you. You can then ask anyone you want to be in the show, but again, you have to do a portrait of them and they have to do one of you. I was invited by my friend Molly Mullahy and am excited to see what she does!
