At Pittsburgh Center for the Arts Friday November 22,  at 5:30pm is the opening reception for “The New Collective” at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts (PCA) 6300 Fifth Ave (Shadyside) Pittsburgh, PA. I am thrilled to have a piece accepted in this show which runs from November 22, 2013 to January 19, 2014. My piece explores the map of Pittsburgh using 2010 census data to portray the residential patterns in the city by race. This exhibition was open to members of all six PCA Guilds to submit to, so I am very happy to be included and cannot wait to see the show! That same night at PCA is the opening of the Holiday Shop.

ANOTHER thing on November 22 and 23rd, 2013! IMI for the Holidays at the Waterfront in Homestead. I will be a vendor there along with Elizabeth Klevens, glass mosaic artist. She is standing above with Carrie Nardini checking out one of the two indoor spaces IMI is occupying this year. Use this address , (the fake town center with Starbucks at Waterfront) and you will be right next to the two stores!


The Panza Gallery show “Sanctuary” (September to mid October 2013) has ended now. Above, Laurie Arnold-McMillan lead the “writing to art” workshop at Panza and later in the month the writers read their pieces to the art and to the artists at the closing. The readings were a result of a “writing to art” workshop that was presented at the gallery and facilitated by Laurie Arnold-McMillan.  Laurie is both a specialist in therapeutic writing and a registered nurse. Panza Gallery 115 Sedgwick St. Millvale, PA 15209.  There is NEWS about Sanctuary. Read the review by Kurt Shaw.

These are my two pieces in the exhibit titled “sanctuary” at  Panza titled Heron’s Nests at Big Sewickley Creek 1&2. Contact me if interested in purchasing the prints.
