Katharine Butler Gallery Show
February 18 - March 14 --
Opening February 20th 6-10pm
Sweet Sustenance, 24x20, mixed media collage
My Featured Artist Show, is right around the corner now! I have been working like crazy on new Paper Paintings and have just photographed the final four pieces, bringing me up to 25 pieces for this show, 75% of which is new work. This has been a very productive past couple of months for me, indeed!
Sweet Sustenance is an image of strawberry picking. Plant City, FL is the strawberry capitol of the world, and they are in season now! I went strawberry picking with my family a few weeks ago and it inspired me to do this piece, as well as a close-up of strawberries which I will hang with it.
The show has an agricultural feel, as those of you who have been following along know. In addition to Barnyard Friends and Fowl, I have also included some plants and trees, nests and even a bowl of apples entitled Flavors of Fall.
My collages will occupy all of the wall space in the main room of the Gallery. The director Chris Falk joked with me and said that my name was going to max out the space for lettering on the wall!
Up until now the KB Gallery has only featured my roosters. With any luck they won't be calling me the "Rooster/Chicken Lady" anymore after this show!
