For the past month, I have disconnected myself from my blog and regular email correspondence. The reason being, I have been immersing myself in my first artist in residence experience. For the past 6 weeks, I have been plein air drawing in the heart of Anatolia at The Babayan Culture House. My time away from web, and effort to simplify my life while I settle back into Turkish culture has been important to me, but I feel ready to slowly unfold the adventure. So here is my first post; an announcement of my culminating exhibition from the residency, and first time showing my work outside of the United States. In the coming weeks, I will be sharing the stories of my journey back to Turkey, and effort to connect with a rural village through my artwork. But for now…a simple announcement of the show, and a few examples of the works to be exhibited. If you happen to find yourself in Kapadokya this month, please feel free to join me!
