I’ve been asked to participate in the Community Spotlight: Celebrating 10 Years of Drop-In Drawing art exhibit at the Denver Art Museum.  The dates of the exhibit are October 28, 2023 through mid-February 2024.  I have four graphite and colored pencil drawings in the show.   

My drawings in the show were done at the Denver Art Museum during the monthly Drop-In Drawing Sessions lead by artist Anna Kaye. These sessions are held the second Tuesday of every month.  The art exhibit celebrates 10 years of Drop-In Drawing. I have been attending for 5 years.

The first photo shows me doing a drawing at the Drop-In Drawing session at the Jonathan Saiz installation #WhatisUtopia exhibition in 2019.  

The second photo shows the colored pencil drawing I did that day and the third photos shows me standing next to the show’s artist Jonathan Saiz.  We are each  holding up the drawings we did that day.    My drawing is one of the drawings featured in the Community Spotlight show.  

The Jonathan Saiz installation comprised a column covered with 10,000 tiny drawings, paintings, and sculptures.  At the end of the exhibition, Jonathan gave away the art at the museum!  I was lucky enough of to get one of the paintings from the show.  This type of installation is one of my inspirations for doing artist trading cards.
