February/March 2014 Art Update

Posted by admin | Events and Updates | Wednesday 12 March 2014 11:41 am

Hello!
February had one art event with my work and also included preparation
for one starting this month in March:

First up, a big Thank You to Ed Gillum for asking me to show work in
his group exhibit WORD, which was on display all of February at the Chris
Sorensen Gallery. This exhibit was centered around the concept of how
language is absorbed and shared by us as humans and uniquely as artists.
The variety of work exposed the many ways we are individually affected
and the power we give such words. We saw how language is intertwined
with visual image, leading to some interesting collaborations within each
piece.

Next, starting Wednesday, March 5th at Arte Americas, my work is part
of the Viva La Muxer exhibit. This special show coincides with and runs
during the International Day of the Woman, as well as Women’s History
Month (March). Nineteen women artists are featured in four galleries.
The entire run of the show is March 5th to May 11, 2014. You can visit
starting March 5th, 11am-5pm (gallery hours Wed-Sat 11am-5pm and
Sun 1-5pm) or join with the artists at either the ArtHop Reception Thursday,
March 6th, 5-8pm or the Artists’ Reception, Saturday, March 15th, 2-4pm.
There will also be a variety of special events scheduled for this exhibit.
Visit http://www.arteamericas.org/ for more details.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And I was a guest, at the request of Arte Americas, on Central Valley Buzz
with Chuck Leonard, Wednesday, March 5th during the 11am-1pm broadcast
to talk about my work in this exhibit, the work of others and the exhibit details.

In the meantime, I invite you to visit my online galleries where you can see
all my work: http://photos.ashtreestudios.net/AlbumHomeView.aspx
Let me know if you are interested in purchasing any of my work.
Remember, I’m always willing to work out payments with you.

Thanks for reading,
Aileen.

January 2014 Art Update

Posted by admin | Events and Updates | Friday 31 January 2014 4:48 pm

Here we are in January 2014 and it’s still a lot warmer than we expected.

But it’s just not productive to dwell too much on what is missing, so we move

forward and plan our next projects.

Like many, I need to reorganize things to make room for new.

Which is why I’m having my 50% OFF FLASH SALE – including 40 pieces

of my work. I invite you to walk through my virtual gallery and find which

pieces you like, then let me know and it can be yours for 50% OFF the

“LAST PRICED AT” amounts, in most cases $100′s of dollars off!

Here is the link to the album of work on Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/aileenri/media_set?set=a.10202084073096420.1073741831.1625074167&type=1

This 50% OFF FLASH SALE only lasts until the end of January!

And remember, I’m always willing to work out payments with you and

in most cases, I can deliver right to your door.

If you or anyone you know might be interested in purchasing art to make

your home or office new in the new year, then now is the time for some Art!

 

Next up in February I will be part of the group show “WORD”, initiated/curated

by Ed Gillum, at the Chris Sorensen Studio/Gallery. As described to the

participants, this exhibit will celebrate communication and language; and how

words that make up sentences become stories and even ideologies.

The Opening Arthop Reception will be Thursday, Feb. 6th, 5-8ish pm.

This should be a truly thought provoking show.

 

Thanks for reading.

4th Quarter 2013 Art Update

Posted by admin | Events and Updates | Saturday 28 December 2013 2:14 pm

Hello Everyone and Happy Holidays!

It’s been 3 months since my last update, missing October, November and now catching up with December’s Art Update. I wish I could say it was due to good news, but unfortunately I’ve been away from updates due to unhappy events.  My 2 beautiful furry kids, Oscar and Malcolm, suddenly got very ill and I chose to devote my complete attention to their care. Early in October, we noticed changes in Oscar and after a handful of vet visits found that he was quickly dying of kidney failure. On October 15th, we were told we would be lucky if we had 30 more days with him. He died just 12 days later.  Malcolm, who had been slowing down this year, suddenly got worse and died just 12 days after Oscar. Suffice to say, I am still a mess. But I am moving forward the best I can. And to add pain where it wasn’t needed, on the very same day that Oscar passed, my husband Tony was experiencing intense pain, checked himself into the hospital and we found out he needed emergency appendectomy surgery. At least the surgery was successful and Tony has recovered, but we are both in mourning.

Meanwhile, since my last update to you in September, my art continued to be involved in various exhibits and sales. Thank goodness my art works were already at the locations before the bad things started to happen.  I finished my solo show at the Boling Fine Arts Gallery, Fresno at the end of September and sold a piece there. I finished the group show in Ventura at the Sylvia White Gallery in October, with good contact with the owner and will be working on a continued relationship with her. And following the show, one of the visitors contacted me and bought “limbo”.  October also had my work at the Fresno Fair and the Pink Show at Margaret Hudson’s Gallery, which went to the end of November.  Then, in an effort to get back out into the world after 2 full months of seclusion, I agreed to show/sell my work at a Holiday Boutique in early December and did sell some work there.  My steps back out into daily life have been slow and carefully chosen, but I am getting there little by little.

For my GoFundMe Donors, I have held on to most of the money as of right now, to make sure my next steps will be well deserving.  One of the best investments so far has been the entry fee that got me into the competition that led to my being chosen for the exhibit at the Sylvia White Gallery and has opened the door to a possible representative relationship.  Hopefully, more to come in the next year.  I’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, you can still help by considering a purchase of original art. It’s not too late to look through my galleries and choose a piece or two as a special gift to someone or yourself! Just message me.

You can find the galleries of all my work on my website: http://photos.ashtreestudios.net/AlbumHomeView.aspx
