All of my work is finally back home from the summer shows. I live in a tiny apartment so it is time for an end of summer sale!
All original paintings are on sale from August 1st - September 31st. I have also added some postcards and some new original fiber pieces to the shop.
FALL EXHIBITIONS AND EVENTS
soothSAY Culture Shock Arkansas Show at the Historic Arkansas Museum
I will be participating in the group show soothSAY with the Arkansas feminist art group Culture Shock Arkansas. The show will be at the Historic Arkansas Museum in downtown Little Rock.
I will have 3 or 4 of my small paintings in the show. I'm hoping to make new work for the show, but if I do not have time some of the best pieces from Friends and Lovers will participate. This show opens Friday September 13th from 5 - 8 pm. This aligns with Second Friday Art Walk in Little Rock. Some of our Culture Shock members will be there to present a short panel on our group and this show. The show will be up at the HAM until early December 2019.
Shifts Happen Exhibition
I will be included in a group exhibition along with several alumni from the Lesley College MFA program in an exhibition called "Shifts Happen." This show will be at the Melanie Carr Gallery in Essex, CT. Melanie was one of my classmates while I was in the program. I will have one piece in the show.
The show will be up during September. I will put the dates on my homepage when they are confirmed.
Gertrude Magazine has selected me as their September featured cover artist. An image from the Friends and Lovers series will be on the cover of the magazine. This issue will also include a small portfolio of my work along with a Q & A about my art practice. The magazine goes live Sept. 15th.
I will also be featured with a Q & A in the The Idle Class magazine. The Idle Class is doing a series on "Arkansans Abroad." I will be discussing my current work and career since relocating to Kansas. I will announce the dates of this feature on my website when they have been confirmed.
As always, I will update my homepage with any new events. I will also be posting new work and events on my Instagram @ratrusty.
