I am happy to be part of this exceptional exhibit, curated by Jean Clad in California. The reception was attended by a large appreciative crowd and I was excited to greet son Mitchell and dear friend Julie Mullin from Mill Valley. Two of my favorite pieces in the show are the "Ring" by Genie Shenk and "Longitude" by Carol Shaw-Sutton. Other artists participating are Cheryl Sorg, Edith Abeyta, and Beatriz Mejia-Krumbein. Sue Ann Robinson, Director of Collections was our host and helpmate throughout this challenging installation.
