OPENING AT GEOMETRIC MADI MUSEUM, ABSTRACT IN PROGRESS AND LANDSCAPE EXHIBIT PLANNED


An invitation to the opening of "Origins in Geometry" Biennial at the Museum of Geometric and Madi Art in Dallas, Texas was received this week.  My work "Mountain Reflections" will be in the exhibit from July 10 through October 5.  I really wish I could be there!  From entry procedures to receiving work, the museum staff have been wonderful. The link to the site above will give you more information.

The invitation included the list of show finalists.  I am honored to be included among the artists in this group.

The two sections of "Bridging the Gap" in progress,  Lori LaBerge  2015


The hooking part of the work above is completed.  I will need to create my own art boards for this work as the sections are not of standard size for pre-made boards. Also, on the to-do list is ordering frames and cutting metal bars to attach the two sections.

Earlier this year an invitation was received to join three local artists in a four person show on landscapes.  Since I have not shown my landscapes in exhibit form yet, I thought this would be a good opportunity to develop some more complex pieces and experiment with some 3-D works.  The show will be presented in the June/July time frame of 2016 at the TRAC Gallery.

I have been studying up on landscapes and purchased "Painted Landscapes: Contemporary Views" by Lauren P. Della Monica.  The book presents contemporary artists works, some historical background and portrays a variety from realism to abstract. 

Tuesday included a meeting with painter Kat Turczyn, glass artist Simona Rosasco and potter Teresa Pietsch.  We discussed ideas for displaying the exhibit, number of pieces from each artist and publicity options.  Simona made an unbelievable salad for lunch and we ended with a raspberry sorbet.  A great day out.

Talking with fellow artists can really create motivation and add to creativity.  Make some time to converse with other artists whether in person or through social media and have a great day.
