What's your favorite time of the year?

Mine is the fall. Though the leaves are making a mess of our deck already, the breezy cool nights are envigorating. As the earth continues it's journey around the sun the days are becoming shorter. Did you know that the earth's axis is tilted at 23.5 degrees? If it wasn't, countries near the poles would be cold and dark year round.

Next weekend I'll be at the Chastain Park Arts Festival in Atlanta, my last show scheduled for the year. Grab your jacket and come on down!
Art is what heals, soothes and enriches our lives-it is what feeds our soul.

A Visit with the Dalai Lama

Yesterday my husband and I went to a panel discussion on creativity, spirituality, and the arts with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Richard Gere, and Alice Walker. It was an amazing experience! The feel and focus contrasted the physical self versus the inner (true) self. When an artist expresses their inner self through their work, truth and compassion are fully realized.

Walkin' in Memphis

Thanks to everyone for joining me this past weekend at T. Clifton Gallery in Memphis! The show was a huge success - it seemed like the whole city was there!

The good news is there's still time to see it (without the crowds :) since the show runs through November 30, 2010.

T. Clifton Gallery Exhibition: October 8, 2010

Join me in Memphis this Friday for the opening of my show "Alignment", with fellow artist Selwyn Garraway, at T. Clifton Art Gallery!

Watercolor magazine wrote, “Selwyn Garraway’s watercolors are a step into the past, a world reminiscent of an old-fashioned English village where life seemed more ordered and tranquil.” Born and raised in Trinidad during the time the Caribbean island was making its transition from a British colony to a republic, Selwyn received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He now resides in New York City.

Cat Tesla's artwork is an ongoing exploration of ethereal landscapes and organic abstract designs - either originating from Mother Nature or inspired by her - executed in mixed media on canvas and birch supports. Multiple layers of acrylic, oil glazes, and collage, combined with handmade clay pieces (the tiles in the work that she makes, dubbed “cookies”), combine the mediums she so enjoys. Southern Living Magazine described her work as complex, where “organic landscapes and abstract elements meet structured grids and lines”. Indeed she is an accomplished abstract and landscape painter, and in many of her works, the two are married. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Catherine “Cat” Tesla has lived in the Atlanta area for nearly half her life.
