2010 Alamosa Art Walk

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

I have three pieces entered in the Art Walk this year.  Two of which are in re-purposed frames.  “From Linda’s Window” entitled because of the old carving in the back of the frame.  “Apache Point” and “Spirit of the Sun”.  I anticipate this year’s Art Walk to be as successful as last year.  It brings together all the various talents of the area.

I’ll Be Workin’ for the Railroad!

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

I recently made a proposal to the RGSR  board  for a project at the newly renovated & remodeled building which now houses the Welcome Center & the Depot for the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad.

There are three individual window openings high in the walls of this grand new space which are great for windows depicting scenes of the railroad and our glorious Colorado landscapes.

My proposal was accepted and newly easeled in my studio is the first of the panels; the little old yellow depot which will soon be moved to Monte Vista.

New Life For Old Windowsills!

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

I am lucky enough to have access to a number of old windowsills, some of which still have remnants of  glass and plaster.  In this day of recycling I like the idea of creating my work within these vintage frames.  As a trade for a few of these,  I have inserted my glass and the re-purposed frames have gone to live new lives.

this particular piece, entitled “Road Home to Mt. Blanca” was commissioned by the wife of my most favorite college professor, for their son, David.  It now resides in Indiana.

New Project for a New Gallery!

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

Laura Murphy, friend, professor & extraordinary fiber artist, has been working for several years on opening her gallery.  When she asked me to design a piece for the new space I jumped at the chance.  The name of her gallery brought immediately to  mind lattices & greenery & she said that fit her vision as well, if I could incorporate images of her logo into the whole.  This is the final drawing agreed upon.  She loved the Luna Moth!

I have decided to show the actual process from drawing through cutting, foiling, soldering & framing on this project.

The completed piece was successfully installed just prior to Christmas ’09 and the gallery opening was  great!

In trade for my glass work I will receive a hand crafted piece of wearable art from a true master!

Milagros Coffeehouse Show

Monday, November 9th, 2009


For the entire month of November, 2009, I will be showing pieces of various subjects, sizes and prices.

I have always been pleased to work with the homeless shelter here in Alamosa as far as my work goes, and 10% of anything which I sell from this venue will go directly to Milagros, which helps support the homeless shelter.

Sand Dunes Installation & Unveiling

Monday, November 9th, 2009

whole piece001

On September 26th, 2009, the installation and unveiling took place at the visitor’s center with a crowd-filled lobby. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar pulled the coverings from the panels and spoke a few words in honor of “Public Lands Day”. Park superintendent Art Hutchison spoke as well and introduced me to talk about the project and my relationship to the Sand Dunes.

I was also honored by the park staff and the “Friends of the Dunes” with a reception for my friends and family after the unveiling.

The first time I visited the dunes was as a young girl on a Scouting trip. Little could I know that someday I would be honored to have such a piece of my work displayed in this park. Since coming to the valley in 1969 as a college student, and later marrying and raising my family here, I have been to the dunes numerous times to camp and hike.

Thus things have come full circle.
