Everybody’s Ocean: Wave II

Celebrate the opening of Wave II of Everybody’s Ocean in the Solari Gallery at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History. Opening reception of Wave II: Free First Friday, March 6th 5-9 PM. Click here for more information.  Words of thanks by curator Justin Hoover at 7:30. Everybody’s Ocean is a massive crowd-sourced exhibition featuring artwork about the ocean. An installation from my Bone Series has been a part of this exhibition as one of the “anchored” pieces of the show and this has been an incredible exhibit to be a part of. Come see for yourself!

The ocean represents anything from womb to tomb. We personify it as a wrathful god, a seductive spirit, or an indomitable force. The four oceans of the world cover 71% of the Earth’s surface and link us to primordial pasts. The ocean is a living, shared space and one of the greatest unexplored mysteries of the world.  Everybody interprets the ocean in different ways.

A new ceramic studio and gallery has just arrived in Santa Cruz and its looking beautiful! The studio will cater to professionals and beginners alike as well as showcasing some of the most talented ceramic artists in the area (I’m so lucky to be included among them!) in the Slip Away Gallery. Pieces from my Nest Series are currently on display in the gallery. The best surprise after setting up the work was the amazing shadows they cast on the wall of the gallery. I’m honored to be showing my work alongside Liz Crain, Gail Ritchie, Sylvia Rios, Yumiko Aso, Sam Clarkson, Karen Hansen, Elaine Pinkernell and more to come. Come by, visit the gallery and add some new art to your collection.
