While not officially a represented artist at this gallery I have shown three times with them this year in open calls for art. I feel immensely grateful when selected.

Today is American Thanksgiving and, once we've all emerged from our turkey dinners (or cranberry and vegan sausage stuffing for those of us vegetarians. Reach out if you're as sure as I am that you need that recipe!) it's time to shop! We all know Black Friday, but I've been overjoyed in recent years at how so many people have embraced Small Business Saturday!
I'm not a huge shopper, personally, but I do love gift-giving. It's my love language, and as soon as November rolls around, you'll find me sitting happily in my Christmas leggings, poring over my Christmas list spreadsheets, humming “Jingle Bells” under my breathe. However, the more I work toward championing women (my personal mission as well as the mission of Roaring Artist Gallery), the more I realize how important it is that we put our money where our values lie. And since I believe that, I dedicate 70% of my gifting budget every year to spend at primarily women-owned small businesses- including artists!
At Roaring Artist Gallery, we produce our “Powerful Little Things” Exhibition just in time for the holidays. It's an exhibition of small (24" x 24" and smaller) artworks, perfect for starting an original art collection for your loved ones- or yourself! And if you're already a collector, we hope to introduce you to awesome artists you might not have known, as well as showing you some of the more accessible pieces from our own represented artists. You can see some of these pieces below, and we hope you'll click through and visit our 3-D Exhibition! All of the art in this exhibition can be viewed and purchased on the Powerful Little Things show page in the Show Catalog.
This time I submitted these fun 6x6 (inch) stitched collages made with vintage old maid cards
8 all told.
I have created quite a bit this year in "series" as a way of offering a collection of pieces that compliment each other. These are a very good example of that.
Photography = a never ending opportunity to capture visual celebrations.
