I'm thrilled to have my work chosen for The Attleboro Arts Museum's upcoming exhibit, "Used". This nationally juried exhibit will open on June 16th.

The juror for this year's show was Russell LaMontagne, Founder and Owner of LaMontagne Gallery in Boston.

The museum invited U.S. artists to submit interpretations of “USED” in all mediums, sizes, and concepts. For instance: “I only read used books; she used me and broke my heart; that high-rise apartment used to be a lush garden; used clothing shops are my go-to; I’ve gotten used to their dry humor.” 

"Sweet and Sour" is a multi-layer construction on dura-lar, plexiglass, and aluminum composite. Media used include acrylic paint, ink, transfers, colored pencil, graphite, silk thread, and paper. (view larger image here)

Apropos of the theme, my piece centers around the early indoctrination of girls to be sweet and nice (sugar and spice and everything nice...) and speaks to the lifelong challenge of stepping beyond such a role. Questions arise as to how society uses social and gender norms in order to function and at what cost to the individual.

The Opening Awards Reception will be Saturday, June 17th from 2-4 pm. It is free and open to all. Reservations are not required (but are appreciated)  RSVP directly to the museum by email or call 508-222-2644 (x10)
