Recent and upcoming exhibits
I was delighted to participate again this year in the Annual 5 x 7 Fundraiser at The Contemporary Austin. I donated two sculpture and one was pre-selected by a sponsor of the event which means the people who got "first dibs" on artwork before the auction began, selected it. I am honored my work was chosen.
The artwork is an altered book using a youth novel called "Let the Circle Be Unbroken," by Mildred D. Taylor. It is part of a series of books that the author wrote. I remember reading the first in the series, "Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry," when I was a kid.
The other work is an altered book collage called "Scarcely Breathing" which is contained inside a wooden shadow box.
Upcoming Exhibit: I will be exhibiting and donating an artwork to the George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center as part of their 100% exhibit. Exhibit opens on April 2nd, 2015. Some of my students' work will also be in the exhibit.
In addition, selections from my students Civil Rights portrait series are already on display at the Carver and I am grateful for the opportunity for myself and my students!

Benefit for Ryan Weds June, 27th and Girls Guild Altered Books Workshop in July!
Some of my artwork will be up for auction to help benefit Ryan Noriega, a former co-worker from the Dougherty Arts Center, who is battling cancer. As a part-time Art Teacher and musician, Ryan does not have insurance. Ryan Noriega, a man of many talents (http://www.porcelainwasteland.com/) is currently in the hospital battling cancer. There would be no HfB without his writing, guitaring, crooning and fashioning of the Betsy brand. So, we're putting together a show in his honor with some of our friends to help out with the costs.
Many local artists will be donating pieces of their own exquisite art work for auction!
Edge of Imagination Station will be there demonstrating stop motion animation!
GoodPop will be there distributing some delicious organic popsicle goodness!
Quick Draw Photo Booth will be capturing our silly poses in drawing and photography from 8-10pm, with all tips going to Ryan!
LINEUP WILL BE:
GLOW IN THE SUN
....and a tap dancing solo by Zeke of Heaven for Betsy!

Spring Updates 2012
This past year I worked as a Teaching Artist for an amazing organization called Theatre Action Project which is all about Creative Arts Education as a method of social change.
