Many talented artists from the area are involved in this show: Nancy Beresford, Deb Doll, Kathryn Dreifuerst Susan Fiebig, Kristi Frederick, Amy Jarvis, Me, Nicci Martin, Roxine McQuitty, Socorro Olsen, and Nina Schmidt. All of the art is olive/balsamic vinegar-related! This show will be up for many months.
"Through Mia's Eyes" Exhibit
Gallery & Frame Shop, Fond du Lac, WI
Dates: 4/16/2013 - 6/1/2013
This exhibit was created by me to raise awareness of Stargardt's Disease, a disease of the retina, by which my niece Mia is afflicted. I rallied 10 of my friends, plus my husband Brian and my sister Jennifer, to create works of art where the main focus of the artwork is 1/4" square. The goal of the exhibit is to give the viewer a glimpse into how difficult it can be for Mia to see, but also that there can be much beauty and detail in the most minuscule of artworks.

Many thanks to the artists who contributed to this amazing show: Carolyn Brady, Susan Fiebig, Kathy Gieschen, Darlene Hagopian, Amy Jarvis, Carol Jensen, Brian Kolstad, Nicci Martin, Gary Warren Niebuhr, Nina Schmidt, Mary Wehner,and Jennifer Zutter.

I would also like to thank Julie Balson, owner of Gallery & Frame shop, without whom this exhibit would not be possible.

"To the Power of N - Where N Equals 10"
Collaroy, NSW, Australia (online exhibit)
Dates: 10/2/2011 -
Exhibit explained by curator Joel Lambeth:

The medium of collage allows for the expression of concepts, ideas and emotions through the reinterpretation and recontextualisation of an endless array of discarded and then found materials. 

But what if there were only a finite amount of pieces to choose from with which to make a collage? Would two collages created by different artists using the same materials end up looking the same, or at least similar? What about ten different collages by ten different artists? 

Would a thousand monkeys at a thousand typewriters all eventually write Shakespeare?

To the Power of N: Where N Equals 10 sets out to answer these questions (except maybe the one about the monkeys).

Ten artists will be given a package of identical materials that comprises of ten different elements, and each will be asked to each create a single collage artwork using the pieces provided with the hope that despite using the same components to create their work, each artists individual style and personal vision will result in vastly different artworks.
