This is a video of Ann Arbor Women Artists installation, "The Picnic" in downtown Ann Arbor.

The Picnic is part of the Ann Arbor Art Center's PopX Festival. Thirty of our AAWA members worked on this installation. Its on display in Liberty Plaza at the corner of Division and Liberty Streets, until October 24, 2015. 

I helped make dragonflies, a hummingbird, the mosaic, salad spoons, fruit, the signs and the grass. We have nature sounds playing in our pavilion in the background too!

AAWA members collaborating and creating!

Ann Arbor Women Artists 50th Fall Juried Show

AAWA is holding its 50th Fall Juried Exhibition at the Ann Arbor Public Library next week. I was very happy that our juror (University of Michigan Art Professor Nancy Thayer)  selected my piece titled "Cheers" to be in this show. To commemorate our 50th anniversary, the AAWA Board created a painting to donate to the library's permanent art collection. Each board member painted a portion of a picture of the library. The beautiful result is the large composite painting below! 

I am honored to be the President of AAWA at this time. One would think that organizing a group of artists would be like hearding cats, but no! AAWA is a group of smart, inclusive and cooperative artists.
