'Art that Heals' Opening at Tohono Chul Gallery

Art the Heals is the theme for Tohono Chul Park's upcoming show, which will open on March 11 and runs through May 16. Exhibit organizers received more than 400 entries for the juried show and chose 72 pieces--including my mosaic shrine "Letting Go Is True Freedom" (above).

The gallery will host an opening artists' reception on March 11, 2010 from 5:30 - 7:30. Tohono Chul has a reputation for high-quality exhibits featuring local artists. Stop by the park for the art and a show of spring flowers in the gardens.

Spring Open Studio Tour

The Spring Open Studio Tour will be March 13-14 this year, and my midtown studio will be open both days from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. I'll have dozens of new mosaic designs, photo greeting cards, and beaded jewelry for sale. As a show special, I'm offering earrings and selected necklaces as 2 for the price of 1. Cash, check, and Pay Pal accepted.

More than 100 artists will be participating in the tour. The list of artists is online and will be printed in the March issue of Zocalo Magazine.

The Studio Tour is a great way to support local art and Tucson's economy. Buying direct from artists is very affordable because you will not be paying gallery consignment fees or show costs. Stop by my studio and say "hi".
