Dear Friends,

This newsletter promises to be brief and to be followed by others that will also say less and communicate more, if that is possible!

For the month of November my latest project, Nature Body Time will be exhibited in Fresno, California at Spectrum Art Gallery view the details. For this exhibition I am selecting from several bodies of work. One is my fascination with the iconography of the Greek Gods and Goddesses found not only in sculpture but also in the gestures of Isadora Duncan dance forms. Another is a series of studies of the pregnant body, which led over the years to an ongoing exploration of the nude. I am interested in the body not only as an ideal concept of beauty made eternal as art, but also as flesh, part of nature, moving through time.

I hope that you enjoy these images from the exhibition.
