I am excited to be a keynote speaker for University of Kutztown’s Annual Art and Education Conference (tomorrow!). I”ll be talking about historic structures, contemporary artists, as well as my work. If you will be there-please stop by and say hello! This image is of The Felbrigge Psalter an illuminated collection of psalms whose embroidered binding probably dates to the early 14th century-one of the oldest known book with an embroidered binding! One of the very cool book things we’ll be looking at!!!

Wyoming Bound!

I will be in Wyoming next week for my exhibition Baby (not) on Board at Western Wyoming Community College, in Rock Springs. I’ll be working with students and others in the community. It’s going to be really exciting to see this new work up in one space-for the first time! And, there has been some interest in the local press
