2016 marks the year that I make a major dream come true…
It’s an honor and privilege to announce that I am exhibiting new work at InkSplash 2016, Rockaway Artists Alliances’ annual, invitation-only printmaking exhibition, themed “Printmaking in a Changing World”, from October 22 – November 13th, 2016. InkSplash 2016 will feature a wide variety of original printed works: intaglio, mono print, relief, solar-plate etching, aqua tint, photo transfers and experimental techniques celebrating the fine art of printmaking in a changing world.
Rockaway Artists Alliance is an arts organization headquartered on the Rockaway peninsula in the New York City borough of Queens. Their studio is located at Fort Tilden in Gateway National Recreation Area, NYC’s National Park. RAA’s mission is to encourage and engage residents of its community, with arts and cultural activities. RAA also partners with New York institutions (most recently with MoMA PS1) in an effort to bring various art forms and experiences (via workshops, demonstrations and exhibitions) to the residents of this unique and geographically isolated peninsula. Rockaway is a cool way to experience New York in a small community within in a big city that has ties to the serious art world….and…I. AM. READY!!! (Can you tell I’m super excited???!!!)
I will be attending the opening reception of InkSplash 2016, where I will have the opportunity to meet the other exhibiting artists and engage with the local artist community of Rockaway. Other artists included in InkSplash 2016 are Carolyn Antonucci-Almeida, Victoria Barber, Kathy Caraccio, Faith Edeson, Jason Novetsky, Brendan Patrick, Renee Radenberg, Carmen Frank, Willa Mae Gilbert, Elizabeth Harington, Neddi Heller, Christian Le Gars, Luanda Lozano, Esther Grillo, Deena des Rioux, John Grillo, Melissa Rubin, Onnie Strother, Susan Rostow, Dan Welden, and Wendy Stefanelli.
