endangered kingdom artist talk, world pangolin day and more, at the joan hisaoka healing arts gallery
I want to thank folks for braving the cold and sloppy winter weather Saturday to come by and hear my Endangered Kingdom artist talk at the Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery. It was so good to get a chance to share my work with such wonderful people! A big thanks goes out to Spencer Dormitzer (top photo) for such an eloquent and thoughtful introduction, as well, and to friends who traveled near and far to see the show and hear me speak, and buy my work yesterday. I am forever grateful.

Saturday was also World Pangolin Day, a perfect and appropriate day to talk about my Endangered Kingdom exhibit. I want to give the always inspirational Jennifer Crawford a shout out for purchasing my Pangolin piece on the show’s opening night!
The Smith Center for Healing And the Arts, which is part of the Hisaoka Gallery, is such a warm and welcoming space. I’ve always loved the colorful origami bird sculptures along the space’s window. I'm looking forward to doing a Splotch Monster-making workshop here in March, so stay tuned for more details to come! In the meantime, the Endangered Kingdom art exhibit ends on Saturday, March 3rd, so there's still a little time to see the show before it all comes down.

The @dc.artspace Instagram page was kind enough to let me share a pic that they posted at my opening last week. It was truly heart-warming to see young people getting into the show too, and I loved how their parents had them go on a little scavenger hunt, trying to identify the animals on the exhibit flyer, and match them with the art on the gallery walls. I can’t believe it’s been a little over a week since the opening night for Endangered Kingdom at the Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery, and roughly twenty pieces have already sold. The positive response to this show is more than one could ever hope for. If you missed the opening, the show will run through March 3rd. Hope you can make it!

I currently have a little art exhibit at Ridgetop Coffee & Tea, in Sterling, Virginia, featuring a handful of fairly recent landscapes and nature-themed acrylic paintings (above photos), through the months of February and March, 2018. Kris Loya also has a wall showcasing her beautiful work at Ridgetop during those same months. Stop by if you're in the area, and definitely grab a coffee and try some of their excellent pastries. Our personal favorite is the homemade pop tarts.
