It's a wacky few weeks, so I'm making a list ...

I've been so busy in the studio that I've neglected to spread the word about upcoming sales, shows, etc. Yikes! So, here goes ... wait, I will not be at Friday's Open Studios at Brazee, you'll see why below BUT I will be open for December's - and will have extra hours next month, too ...

Were Perfectly Capable of Putting Themselves on a Pedestal

Lost Horizons (art about history): Just 16 pieces were selected from a pool of 626 for this survey of how artists are addressing history in their work.

Indian Hill Church Fine Art Collector's Weekend: Dozens of Cincinnati area artists participate in this annual sale. This year, they've added a preview party on Thursday and a lecture about Rookwood Pottery on Saturday. I'll be showing a variety of collages from all my series, including the new "Paper, Scissors, Rock" and "Bomb" series. 7-9:30 p.m. Thursday (Young Collector's Preview Party), 6-9 p.m. Friday Nov. 9 ($5 donation) & 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Sat.

Ho! Ho! Ho!
Archival prints on cotton rag paper. Limited edition.

Multiplicity/Hang It Up: I've made new prints from my Ho! Ho! Ho! series of Santa collages for my studio home's annual holiday show. These are the first prints from the series. Opens 6-9 p.m. Friday Nov. 9 and continues through Jan. 3. 2013. gallery one one, Brazee Street Studios, 4426 Brazee Street, Oakley. More Info.


Secret Artworks: Hundreds of artists create 5"x7" works for this annual fundraiser for Artworks. (I donated three collages.) Each piece sells for the same price - $75. The "secret" part is that you don't know whose work it is until it's sold. Preview the art in Weston Hotel Atrium Nov. 12-15 and right now online. Oh, and there's a twist this year: they're auctioning some of the new pig sculptures that lined the streets of Cincinnati during the summer.  5-9 p.m. Friday Nov. 16 at MCA (the old Contemporary Arts Center), 120 E. Fourth St., downtown. More info.

One of three new calendars. The others are
 Out On a Limb (bird collages from the series) and Paper With a Past (a mash up).
Signed, limited edition, packaged in a clear box.
$12 each
18th Annual Studio Collection Sale: Gather 12 women artists into the ballroom of a funky old lodge, add food, door prizes and music, and you have a sale that's more like a party. I've attended the show for the past six years or so and recommended it to others, so, I was thrilled to be asked to be a guest artist this year. Look for cards, collages and new goodies such as the calendars. 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday Nov. 17, Harmony Lodge, 646 East Epworth Ave., Spring Grove Village (former Winton Place). More info.
