Linked In Spirit: An Exhibition of Mixed-media Collages, Clayboard Drawings, and Mosaics is on display at the Fine Arts Center gallery, Bethel College, North Newton, KS, March 5 – April 2, 2010. Â Hrs. M – F 9 am – 5 pm and Su 1 – 5 pm. This exhibit will be at the Percolator, Lawrence, KS, in May.
This is a new piece that I made for the “Dime Bag Show,” a fundraiser for Lawrence’s Social Service League, at the Percolator Gallery on August 1, 2009, 7-10 pm. Â All art is made Â from materials purchased at the Social Service League, including the plates and cups that I broke for this piece (12″ x 12″). Â All work is priced at under $50, and proceeds go to the Social Service League.
I made this mosaic in the Art and Conversation class that I co-led for women survivors of sexual violence, at GaDuGi SafeCenter. In this project, each participant created a 6-inch ceramic tile painted to represent a painful experience. Â We each, then, broke our tile and used it to create something new — an element in a mosaic.
