From April 23 through May 1st there will be a display of K-5 student work at City Hall. Most of the programs participating in the show are in existence due to the Arts Tax in Portland. This show highlights the positive effects of bringing art back to PPS schools. Jason Lee K-8 School, where I teach, will have work on display.
Reception: Wednesday, April 30 at City Hall from 3:30-5:00 p.m

This Saturday, come see over 2000 pieces of art, and see if you can find my ten pieces (hint: five of them are fiber and most likely some of the only work in this medium). The fun starts at 2pm and goes until 10pm!

Layered Landscapes is an exploration of Portland, Oregon dictated by born and bred residents. Steph, Hank, Andy, and Dan shared their memories of places located around the city and guided me on personalized walking tours. While I walked each individual’s route, I documented the multisensory experience of moving through each place, collecting the sights, sounds and textures. The work in this exhibition refers to the visual language of cartography, while blending the physical landscape with the experiences and memories that transform spaces into places.

During the past few months I have been working on an art project with students and parents at Ainsworth Elementary. I invited fifty 2nd graders from the Spanish Immersion program to draw their own maps of Portland. Then I scanned a section from each of their maps and transferred it onto fabric. I asked each student to add his or her fabric place to a large map of Portland.
The students also made paintings of their places, which were transferred onto fabric as well and sewn around the map. The final piece has been completed, thanks to dedicated students, parents and neighbors and will be sold at the annual Redbull Auction in March. Many hours of work by many hands paid off!
