I have two paintings included in this group exhibition curated by art critic Evan Senn. I hope you can join us for the opening at Display in Anaheim.
Opening reception is Sunday August 9th, 2-6pm
An exhibition that explores the gifted, diligent, rising female stars in Orange County's booming art scene. Whether connected through location, collectives, friendships, collaborations or exhibitions, these women have created a strong artistic community amongst themselves, finding strength and passion together.
Featuring art by Suzanne Walsh , Sydney Walters, Joy Shannon, Katie Perdue, Michelle Orozco, Erin Metzdorf Catalano, Patti McCandless, Diana Markessinis, Jennifer King, Jinx, Diana Corpus, Annie Compean, Tea Cake, Anna Brittell, Sarah Elise Abramson, Elisa Ang, and Virginia Broersma, we will be celebrating the evocative work of these talented artists, and exploring the artistic expression prevalent in this unique community.
Curated by art critic Evan Senn, the opening reception for "Young & Restless" will take place on Sunday, August 9, 2015, from 2-6pm, and will include live musical performances by Joy Shannon and Taylor Crawford.
"Surrounded by countless hurdles, competition and the nonstop patriarchy in the arts, young female artists have a tough time making a name for themselves, a tough time finding recognition, respect and opportunities. Being on the orange side of the Southern California artistic landscape doesn't help too much either. Los Angeles is bustling with art and opportunity, forcing artists to fight their way to the top of the art food chain, stepping over others like dead bodies in a zombie apocalypse. The young women persevering through it all are graced with talent and determination, kindness and community, against all the odds in front of them. Talent is one thing that is not a hurdle for the young and restless female artists of Orange County." -Evan Senn, July 2015

Janice Lowry "Constructions"
As a counterpoint to the women in "Young & Restless" we are presenting an installation of "constructions" by Janice Lowry. Janice maintained a studio in Orange County from the early 80's until her premature death in 2009. We are proud to present a collection of some of her best works.
Please join us on Sunday, August 9, from 2-6 PM and see some great art, have some fresh locally brewed beer, good wine and snacks! We would love to see you!
