The Space In Between
Bay Area Exhibition | Curated by Karen Gutfreund
Project Gallery at Arc , San Franciso, CA
November 18, 2023 - December 16, 2023
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, November 18, 7-9 PM
Nothing is black or white. “The Space Between” showcases artwork that records our passions, memories and dreams with images of the ephemeral, a space where the personal becomes the universal. On themes of myth, consciousness, intuition, symbols and ritual, the works express the power of the human condition. I'm honored to have my work, 100 Year Wish, included in this exciting exhibition in San Francisco.
Through the lens of self-identified women and non-binary artists, in exploring one’s unconscious realities and portraits of dreams and fantasies, the exhibition is a portal for recognizing or re-knowing one’s self to understand the passages of consciousness, inner journeys, memory, and being—impacting emotional, poetic, spiritual, and subconscious planes. The artists portray the space between, where creativity is born and then lives as a powerful talisman through the stories that we tell ourselves and to others in search of the divine.
100: Marking the Attleboro Arts Museum's Centennial
Attleboro Arts Museum
April 11th – May 6th, 2023
In 1923 ten Attleboro women formed a local chapter of the American Federation of Art. This visionary group, and many other dedicated individuals that followed, recognized the positive impact that art and culture have on our lives and community. 100 years later, the Attleboro Arts Museum honored these wise foremothers and commemorated this milestone with an exhibition featuring the work of artists from the Surface Design Association – New England Region.
100 honored the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Museum. The exhibition explores art and cultural movements, the process of aging, long-standing societal concerns, and manners of marking the passage of time. My piece, 100 Year Wish, was included in this special exhibition.
Artist Statement: 100 Year Wish
A creepy Old Wives Tale involves the dandelion. Superstition has it that if you blow on a white dandelion head, the number of seeds remaining indicates how many years you have left to live.
This piece reflects my heart's desire to collect more time. Hoard it. Keep it. Save it. I have captured 100 years of dandelion seeds and preserved them in tiny little vials. I refuse to let them drift away.

Artist statement for "Queen"
The ginko tree is a living fossil that has survived all of the mass extinctions. 170 ginko trees, dubbed, the “A-bomb trees”, stood within 2,200 meters of the nuclear bomb blast at Hiroshima and survive to this day. These golden ginko leaves are a fitting crown for women around the globe who overcome so many challenges in their daily lives.
