Award for Best of Show in for the Inter Society Color Council Exhibition COMPLETELY COLOR: Color and Human Experience as part of the society’s Color Impact 2023 World Conference at Rochester Institute of Technology.

I’m humbled and honored to receive Best of Show Professional Division for my work QUADRAMID V in the exhibition COMPLETELY COLOR: Color and Human Experience as part of the society’s Color Impact 2023 World Conference at Rochester Institute of Technology, June 11 – 15, 2023. Attendees from around the world and from across the spectrum of color professions including Science, Industry, Education and Art & Design gathered for this 5 day conference with keynotes, thought-provoking presentations, hands-on workshops, short courses, field trips, an art exhibition and more.

It wasn’t mandatory but artists in the exhibition were asked to produce a short video statement of which some would be selected to be shown at the conference. I found out that my video was shown as the closeout to the conference and the words in my statement were singled out as part of the decision for my award (see video statement below).

The Inter-Society Color Council advances the knowledge of color as it relates to art, science, industry and design. Each of these fields enriches the others, furthering the general objective of color education.

My Husband and I Surprised When My Sun Suddenly Appeared While Watching CBS Sunday Morning Broadcast January 9, 2022 About TikTok Star Adam Waheed and Other Comedians

My husband Bruce and I were watching the show CBS Sunday Morning (January 9), as we often do and suddenly, totally surprised, there it was, my “Eye Sun” flashing on the screen for just a couple of seconds after a segment about TikTok. The segment was about the rise of comedians on TikTok including the comedian star Adam Waheed with over 15 million TikTok followers and comedians Harry Leibow, Sarah Barnitt and Sam Ramsdell.

Another one of my suns appeared on the show 3 times in the past. Jessica Frank, the CBS “Sun Queen” had emailed me the day before on Saturday that another sun I had submitted was going to air but I didn’t look my emails on Saturday, hence it was a surprise. We’re glad we didn’t know in advance as it’s surprise lifted our spirits. Something we needed.

uv cured ink on cut-out composite aluminum panel
edition of 3, dimensions variable (48″ x 48″ overall)

Fabrication of this artwork is made possible with an ADAP grant from the Ohio Arts Council.

The following is from my grant application, titled “The Shape of Things to Come”:

With this grant, I will create 4 artworks, printed on rigid substrates as opposed to media of the traditional digital print (paper/canvas). Printing on rigid substrates opens up a new avenue of exploration in my work by allowing my geometric constructs to expand beyond the confines of square and rectangular formats with use of a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Router that can cut the substrate panel to my specifications.
