Meet the Artist 6-9 pm
My mixed media works blend nature and spirituality to explore the rhythms of life. Angels, in particular, inspire me and are my trusted muse. My work is about the poetry that lives beneath the surface of things where layers of rusted paper, fabric, metal and images come alive creating an altered world.
The gallery is proud to host these two accomplished artists for the second year in a row.
They will be both be on hand for their party Friday when Claudia will give informal talks about the art.
The show runs through the month of September.

From 1973 to 1984, Wagstaff assembled one of the most important private collections of photographs in the world, and helped to establish a market for this neglected art form by organizing exhibitions, delivering lectures, and publishing material on his collection.

Open Studios at NEST Arts Factory
The NEST Arts Factory is hosting an Open Studios event on Saturday, September 10 from 2-5 pm. The public is invited to meet the nearly 40 artists of the NEST, tour the studios, view artwork and listen to music, and learn something new! The NEST holds 7 Open Studios events per year, and this is the first Open Studio of the fall season. There is a lot of new work - and new faces - to see!
There will be two art openings at the NEST during Open Studios as well. SPUN, a juried innovative fiber exhibit, will debut in the NEST Gallery with an opening reception from 2-4 pm. Juror Dr Linda Wolk-Simon, director and curator of the Fairfield University Art Museum, choose works by 20 artists from across the US and Canada. Now in its 4th year, this acclaimed exhibit is an international survey of cutting edge work made of fiber or that references fiber in a wide array of techniques, materials, and methods. Please join us for a drink and a bite to eat to celebrate the opening.
I am honored to be included in the show at the New Haven Library (p.s. my re-imagined 'cake pan' is Barbie!):
This project uses the library's existing collection and New Haven's wealth of creative talent to relook at ways of using a profoundly uncreative craft item: the novelty cake tin.
Everything Nice presents clever alternatives to the licensed characters on offer within this collection and reflects on the messages that children and their parents are given in terms of race, class, gender and identity through the branding of these characters From a very young age children are marketed to in ways that have lasting reverberations.The artists in this exhibit offer an alternative look at the uses, meanings, and possibilities behind the sweet treats' structural facade....
