Here is the poster for our show!
I am excited to be showing with two other fabulous artists, Amy Reeves, jewelry and Karen Kosoglad, painter.
Karen and I both went to U.C. Santa Cruz and studied with the same teachers. We have a lot in common with our gestural process, but also very different palettes and approaches to our imagery.
Amy and I met when we both attended the Artist Trust Edge Program. Each of us produces art inspired by nature expressing the gesture of form. It is because we each have this gestural quality that I thought our work would be interesting together. Each of us echoes nature in a new way. We'll find out this Saturday, when we see the show hung together. I'm looking forward to the surprise of the alchemical creation as our three art forms coalesce into one art show.

Paint and metal become form.
Transforming the gesture into evocative works of art, three artists express their reactions to motion, form and time in paintings, and jewelry explosive with color, passion and intellect.
Truthfully present in the moment, each artist explores her unique vision with a common thread.
Amy Reeves, " The passage of time has become a recurring theme in my jewelry."
Andrea Lawson, "In my Rite of Spring paintings, I explore movement and rhythm of gestural dance figures as they appear and disappear creating a metaphor for our relationship with a pulsating natural world."
Karen Kosoglad, " I'm interested in the gestural moments in everyday life and the balance between weight, rhythm, shape and color."
Transforming Gesture will be on view October 1 through November 1, 2010

"I am going to be starting a scholarship fund for youth in our community", says Anna Nasset of Artisans On Taylor in Port Townsend. Andrea recently exhibited paintings at Artisans On Taylor and has work in AOT's online gallery. I was happy to donate a painting to this new worthwhile cause. Thank you Anna for supporting the arts and supporting education in Port Townsend!
"Call or stop in to buy a raffle ticket, or you can feel free to donate as well by simply making a check to AOT with "Scholarship Fund" in the memo. My goal is to raise through gallery donations and client donations $5000 a year!", Anna Nasset
I donated this small oil painting called "Wings Feather" to the raffle.
