Silver Sage Magazine and Mom

I'm delighted that Silver Sage Magazine is using "I Was Really Something" in an article about a daughter losing her mother to Alzheimer's. This painting is about my sparkling mother, Celia Carlin, who died from Alzheimer's. The publisher who contacted me didn't know it actually was a daughter painting her mother dying from the disease until I told her.

Kudos to Gerhard Richter

Gerhard Richter is donating some of his art to help finance the construction of 100 homes for homeless people in Germany. His donation is expected to bring in over 1 million euros. I love artists who are making a difference in the world. Plus, he’s such a fabulous artist. It’s a win for everyone.

Surprise Sighting

This is a very pleasant surprise. EthnoHerbalist is using a cropped version of my painting "No Escape" on their website to illustrate depression.

Embracing Our Differences

The Embracing Our Differences exhibit opened today and once again I'm lucky enough to be part of it. A variation of my painting now called "Kate's Changing The World" will be displayed on a 12.5 foot high x 16 foot wide billboard in Sarasota, Florida's Bayfront Park from April 4 thought June 1. Here's a photo of the billboard being installed. Will post another photo when I'm down there to see the exhibit. This is my shout-out to women scientists and to young girls and women who want to stand out in the STEM fields.

Violence Transformed

So excited about art and activism coming together. Exhibits are popping up around the country centered around human rights and diversity. Violence Transformed, an organization out of Boston, has been in the forefront of this for over 10 years now. Happy to announce that my painting "Evidence 2" about an abused women taking an evidence shot as the first step in taking action will be featured in "Violence Transformed: STAND UP (The Artist's Voice)" exhibit at the Harriet Tubman House, 566 Columbus Avenue, Boston, MA from April 2-June 4. The reception is Thursday, May 3, 6-8pm.

One End Open

Very excited that 6 of my paintings will be in the "One End Open" exhibit along with four other women at the Paula Estey Gallery from March 16th - April 21st. This exhibit celebrates women and how we take the role of the bridge-builders in life. The reception is March 16th, 6-8:30pm and there's an artist talk on Saturday, March 17th, 1-2pm with Cameron Sesto and me. I will also be at the reception. The Paula Estey Gallery is located at 3 Harris Street, Newburyport, MA. This painting is "The Future Is What We Say It Is". As a child my friends and I would play with ouija boards. Without having to say anything before, we would automatically make the ouija board spell out the answers we knew we each wanted to hear and then declare that it would come true because the ouija board said it. Women have the power to not only create their own destinies but to improve the world and be a positive force in it.
