on their wedding day, which was the
inspiration for "Recuerda Me"
Every other year or so I have been donating
an artwork to an invitational exhibition
entitled, “Icons + Altars”.
The annual show is a major fundraiser
New Art Center in Newton, Massachusetts.
Each year, around 100 artists are selected
to participate, creating works based on
their own “personal, cultural or
social” interpretation of an icon
or altar. Works may be two- or three-dimensional
but must conform to a height, width and
depth of between 12” and 18”
The artwork is sold in a unique format.
Anyone interested in purchasing a piece
buys a fixed-price ticket any day during
the show. On the final day of the exhibition,
tickets are drawn from a bowl to determine
the order in which the pieces are selected.
The first name drawn gets first choice
of any piece in the show and so on. Participating
artists may keep up to 50% of the ticket
I enjoy doing pieces for this show because
it allows me to stretch a little and try
new techniques without having to worry
about client approval. The show runs mid-November
