Homage to Motherhood

Warning: this post may contain gushy undertones.

Yes my friends, I'm paying homage to Mothers everywhere.  I'm offering thanks and gratitude to the Mothers I know and admire.  It is within you that I've found a realm of beauty and priceless lessons that teach us all about ourselves...specifically, how we love, how we give, and how we influence the ones who look up to us. 

Personally, this timeless subject strikes a deep and meaningful cord.  It didn't take very long before I learned it's this way for, really, everyone I talk to.  For some, I find the connection is made with their own mother, for others it's the mother that they have observed in all her womanly glory. 

Please join me in the coming weeks and months, I'll be revisiting this subject in multiple ways, in my artwork and I'll share right here, in my Studio Journal.

What Amazing Women Can Do

About a year ago, a group of women paid me one of the greatest honors when they asked me to be apart of a board of directors who are building the future for a fast growing national organization that serves to inspire women in the arts.  

Since then, I've seen some serious passion and determination at work behind the scenes of this amazing group of women.  Today, I'm proud to accept the unexpected invitation to Master Signature Membership, along side some of the countries most talented, hardworking artists.  I hope that by association these gals will rub off on me as we move into the future together.

This week is exciting, it's the greatly anticipated American Women Artists 25th Annual Members Show and National Juried Competition in Scottsdale, Arizona at the Bonner David Galleries.   Tomorrow, there's an incredible symposium lined up.  It's speakers are sure to encourage and inspire every individual in attendance.  If you are near Scottsdale now, don't miss this show and these events...

 
 

The life blood of this non profit organization is not only the time and rescources these women dedicated to the inspiration, celebration, and encouragement of women in the visual fine arts, it's the support that comes in from every individual and corporation who place value on maintaining the mission of this organization.

 You can contribute!  If you have more questions on how to give to AWA please ask me or contact the organization directly.

Leah Lopez Atelier School of Fine Art Annual Exhibition

What an amazing turn out!  The gallery was bursting at the seams with eager visitors and art buyers, so we spilled out onto the landing and then into the Library...basically, we took over the 2nd floor of the Salmagundi Club!  

Congratulations to all the Artists for making this a beautiful event.  Kudos to those who sold their work last night.  A special note of praise to the five artists who won awards of recognition.  

Thank you Elizabeth Spencer and Salmagundi Club! 

The show is on view through Sunday, April 12th.  See hours and info.
