An art exhibit at a dental clinic may sound odd to some readers. But this dental clinic has been exhibiting fine art in Port Townsend for many years. They select high quality, varied work, and schedule 2-3 month long exhibits. Pre-pandemic the clinic hosted wonderful and well catered openings for each new artist. Sadly that is not likely to be an option just now; nonetheless I am honored to hang my work here. I am confident that my solo show at Uptown Dental will be seen and appreciated.
You are welcome to visit without a dental appointment. Visitors are welcome to view the work during business hours, 1-2 at a time, masked. Please plan to check in at the desk to have your temperature taken and to sanitize your hands.
Today I had three willing and wonderful helpers! We hung 33 art works in only 3 hours, in a place with multiple different spaces: long walls, short walls, white, yellow and eggplant colored walls! And we had fun doing it. And we had a lovely coffee break with pastries from Pane d’Amore. Thank you Maureen, Kristian, and Michael!
So let’s talk about the art! I am showing a lot of recent work, along with some “classic” older pieces. My six relief “drawers” are on show, two pieces from my “Mediation: Three Angels” series, two from my “Walking Bones” series, three “Draped Workers”, three abstract monoprints I am proud of, two Crow collages, and much much more! Thirty three artworks are on the walls! You invited to contact me with comments, questions, and of course for purchasing any of these.
I was only able to ready one item from my new digital photo series “The Surprisingly Artistic Potholes of Port Townsend”. But I may come back with one more to slip in later, along with some information. TBD!
I have numbered the art works on show, and provided two copies of the numbered list with prices. Most pieces are available for sale. I am fine with payment by 2-4 installments, if that is helpful.
I am delighted to have my solo show at Uptown Dental, and to show so much work for the first time in over two years! Please come to see it.
I have posted a statement about making art, and what it means to me, at the exhibit and here: “About Making Art”. If you are interested in another point of view about my art, see this discussion, Am I a Macabre Artist, with links to an interesting article about this aspect of my work.
UPDATE #1: This exhibit now includes a binder of small prints from my current digital photography series: The Surprisingly Artistic Potholes of Port Townsend. This binder is in the clinic waiting area for anyone to browse. Eventually I hope to offer large giclee prints from this series in aid of City street repair.
UPDATE#2: I am delighted that I have had two sales in the first two weeks of this exhibit: one is the mixed media collage “City Crow / Full Moon” at left in the last photo above. The other is the mounted digital collage “Sometimes You Need an Angel”; additional prints, mounted or not, are available for digital works.
