Artists in Residence

The Historical Society of Red River County sponsors an Artist in Residence program. This program, which is the brainchild of my husband Steve, brings painters, sculptors, writers, filmmakers and other creative types to Clarksville for one to two week residencies.

This past week we have hosted Denise LaRue Mahlke and Kim Carlton. Yesterday they painted in the woods across the road from our home. It was a gorgeous spring afternoon and as the sun went down and it got chilly they enjoyed the warmth of a big bonfire on our property.

Back In the Woods- Exciting News!

I have been back at work in Lennox Woods for about a month now, working in both the field and the studio toward my solo show Lennox Woods-The Ancient Forest next March. And there is exciting news about the exhibition!  The Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) will be co-hosting the show! BRIT has a beautiful new facility located in the Cultural District in Ft. Worth near Galerie Kornye West. They have a spacious exhibition space which will be a perfect venue for the large format paintings. On Spring Gallery Night, March 29, 2014 there will be simultaneous openings at BRIT with 16 large format paintings and at Galerie Kornye West with another 25 paintings.

Galerie Kornye West and I are excited to partner with BRIT for this exhibition! In addition to the show, a lecture series, gallery talks, and other special events are planned in connection with the month long exhibition.
