Currently up:

The Pacific Pinball Museum 1510 Webster St., Alameda, CA and NCWCA presents: kaPOW! Heroic Women  

kaPOW! Heroic Women exhibition, an initiative of the Northern California Women’s Caucus for Art in collaboration with the Pacific Pinball Museum.

Heroic women are those who say "Me Too”, steadfast friends, mothers, sisters, famous and unknown women of the past whose lives speak to us, living artists, fantasy figures, and living, working, women.  We are in a historical moment where our society is once again examining the role and treatment of women.  There is a desperate need to see women through women's eyes. 




Highlight of 2017:

With Liberty and Justice for Some (a KQED video by Kelly Whalen about the exhibit & I'm in it!)

I am honored to be a part of an exhibit, With Liberty and Justice for Some, co-curated by Monica Lundy and Walter Maciel first at the Walter Maciel Gallery in Los Angeles from January 7- March 4, 2017 then by The San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries March 25 - April 8, 2017. Next it will be hosted by Berkeley Art Center September 23 - October 8, 2017. Opening Reception is Saturday September 23rd 6-8pm.

The main installation forms the U.S. flag reminding everyone that we are a country made of immigrants.
