Reception + Curator's Talk
Thanks to all who made it out to my curator’s talk for the opening reception of Reconstitute. It was an impressive group of people who turned out for negative degree weather. I appreciate Gratia Brown and Wendy Thoreson for being the most fabulous participants to work with and helping me slog through the installation whilst being sick.

Juror for 2018 Student Art Show
Congrats to the award winners and honorable mentions at the Janalyn Hanson White Gallery in the Summer Student Show! (1st-3rd featured). What an impressive array of work to choose from. Thank you for the invitation to jury at Mt. Mercy University. I can’t wait to see what these artists produce for their thesis shows!
I appreciate the opportunity to dive back in to a technique I haven't explored in a while . Making chain links (by request) as well as prepping an armature for solid construction made me feel a bit rusty . Fabulous questions and very talented creators in the Conversations in Clay class at the Iowa Ceramic Center and Glass Studio. I hope to see some of these processes around the studio.
Women’s Work is the first international invitational exhibition hosted by Politits Art Coalition: a group of six artists including Lindsey Collier, Melissa Huang, Kristina Kaiser, Rebecca Lomuto, Jacquelyn O’Brien, and Tina Starr. As part of our mission to support women in the arts, the Politits Art Coalition has invited over forty women artists to participate in this pop-up exhibition at The Yards! We intend to amplify our voices by coming together. In a world and industry that still favors the masculine, we hope to show just what women artists can do.
