It’s hard to believe how fast time flies. Next week will be the start of the installation for the Factor XX show at the Los Gatos Art Museum. The idea for the show started 2 years ago when I wanted to put together an exhibition that showcases and celebrates a group of women artists based on their art practice.
Almost a year ago, I contacted a group of artists and patiently waited for their reply. To be honest, I didn’t know what they would say or expect. I personally didn’t know each artist but deeply respected their art. Would they say yes or would they say no?
Fortunately, the majority of the responses were positive and it was time to move forward. The featured artists would be Mari Andrews, Sharon Chinen, Nancy White, Emily Clawson, Lorene Anderson, Mel Prest, Lea Feinstein, Amy Trachtenberg, Klari Reis, Carol Ladewig, and myself. I couldn’t be more pleased or proud of how the group has come together to make this happen.
As a result, the last year has included organizing the catalog, getting correct artist information, studio visits, planning the show, and etc… It’s been well worth the time and effort. The process has been exciting from just an idea to reality.
Now back to work…
