It’s so crazy that this blog series and the exhibition is coming to a close!
I have to say it was truly an amazing experience and Creative Pinellas has been so incredibly supportive. I’m sure some of you are curious as to where I’m going to go next! .
I am happy to say that I will be in two shows this August! One is an opening of a permanent collection with HCC. My piece “Grounding Techniques” was donated to HCC and will be a part of their permanent show titled “In their own words”. I was interviewed by Alyssa Miller and we talked about the work and as well as my connection to the local community. Some of the artists included will be Suzanne Camp Crosby, Aneka Ingold, Aimee Jones(me, of course), Akiko Kotani, Tom Kramer, Tracy Midulla, Wanda Raimundi-Oritz, Renatto Rampolla, Frank Rampolla, Babs Reingold, Omar Richards, Emiliano Settecasi, Kirk Ke Wang, and Ruby C. Williams.
The opening is August 2 at Gallery 3 @ HCC from 6-8pm.
It’s truly been an honor to work for HCC and to be apart of their community.
Next I will be in an inaugural show with the Museum of Motherhood which will open at the Factory in St.Petersburg, FL. I don’t know all of the details but I will be showing with them and am extremely excited for their vision and mission!
Lastly, I’m working on new things for a solo show that I will have at the Sarasota Art Center in Sarasota. I know it will be at the end of November but not sure the exact date-of course, I will update on my instagram so do stay tuned!
I’m looking at a lot of vintage stores and strange shapes within objects that look corporal and use of the female form. Of course this is a huge inspiration from Portia Munson’s work which I previously wrote about. I won’t post any photos yet because it’s still too new! But I do hope you all can make it out to support.
It’s been such a huge pleasure writing this blog and I hope if you’re reading this that you’ll stay in touch! If you’re an artist in Pinellas County I highly recommend you apply for the emerging artist grant, it’s truly been so supportive and I can’t be more lucky to have the mentorship and guidance through it all!
Cheers to you all!
