I am excited to be part of a wonderful online exhibition through February 28, 2019 entitled, For the Love of Art, sponsored by Envision Arts. There are several beautiful works by talented artists ad I am proud to be listed among them! Congratulations to all the artists in the show!
If you haven’t been to the Texas Visual Artists Association (TVAA) Downtown Gallery in a while, or if you’ve never been…it is time to go check it out for yourself! The TVAA is an extremely open, welcoming, and accepting gallery, with members who are not only talented but also genuinely supportive and collaborative. Every month there is a new show, with a new theme, and none of the original works of art are ever repeated. All new works, every month! There are a lot of great galleries in Dallas, but the TVAA is a place where you can find an amazing piece of original art that won’t break the bank.
This month, February 2019, the TVAA features a show entitled, Love and Hurt. The show is curated by a tremendous Dallas-based artist, JuJu Bartush and features paintings, drawings, watercolors, sculptures, ceramics, textiles, and assembled art. The range is phenomenal!
I am happy to announce that my painting, hindsight, was the juried recipient of 1stPlace in the show! My painted acrylic sculpture, Don’t Get Burned, was also an honorable mention recipient. Check them out while they are still in the gallery. The show runs through March 2, 2019. If you have any questions about the TVAA, the gallery, or any of the works, don’t hesitate to ask me or contact the gallery directly at www.tvaa.org. 700 N. Pearl Street in Dallas, TX at the Plaza of the Americas.
1stPlace – hindsight, oil and acrylic ink on canvas, homemade hand charred frame, 30×40
Honorable Mention – Don’t Get Burned, acrylic on tempered plastic, 24×30
This unique, wheel thrown, and hand altered platter is a colorful, one-of-a-kind statement piece! Features black, blue, and white, with lavender accents, and a stunning red cherry blossom in the center. 15 inches across – this is a perfect platter to serve, decorate, or even just hold the mail in style!
Last week, I had the great honor and opportunity to sit as chairperson for the 4th Corinium Global Intelligence – Chief Learning Officer Forum – Fall 2018, in Boston, MA. It was a tremendous event which drew out many of the world’s top learning leaders both as speakers, panelists, and attendees.
There were numerous key takeaways from this conference, both in the form of lessons learned and what we should be looking forward to in the coming years. And while I don’t want to give all the secrets away, I will share two key points…
Mobile strategy is a must (if it is possible in your business)
As a learning leader…you are not alone
We learned that in the IOT (internet of everything) culture and future, mobile connectivity is both bringing people together and making them feel more isolated at the same time. (conundrum!) Whether that isolation is felt or not, mobile devices will only get more powerful and will continue to grow in usage and leverage. If you and your business do not have a mobile learning solution for your users…it is time to get connected! To celebrate our commitment to mobile strategy, we took a groupie (a repurposed selfie).
We also learned that being a leader of learning can be lonely and confusing. Am I going in the right direction? Is this platform going to help? Did I design this correctly to reach the most users in the best way? Will the users care about this content? How can I get more learners to be engaged in the content we are creating?
It is these types of questions and more that we discussed over three days and I happy to say, while I have new answers and new directions…I also have a better sense of community with learning leaders across a broad spectrum of industries. We are in this together! Only through sharing our ideas, our accomplishments, our struggles, our challenges, and yes, our failures, do we grow and improve as a community. You are not alone!
I am excited to be part of the Texas Visual Arts Association Member Show – Citation 2018 – at the Mesquite Art Center from 11/5-12/1. Hope you can make it out to the center to see some great art this month! The holidays are coming 😉
Dropping off “compassion” oil and acrylic ink on canvas.
I am excited to feature this original mixed media piece in mystro’s gallery! Now available with free domestic shipping!
Don’t judge a book by its cover…all of these symbols are ancient runes or voodoo symbols of positivity, protection, and love. Protection, love, wealth, home, etc are all featured. The 3D canvas was created with multiple mixed media components and has a natural/organic look. Summoning these fire flowers will not only protect you but will also be an exciting statement piece in any home or office!
Need a conversation starter? Let this work of art protect you!
I am extremely excited to be speaking with the Dallas HR Executive Breakfast Series on Tuesday! It should be a fun discussion about core values and how we can live them in our daily lives. And it is a sold out meeting!
This will kick off the second half of the year on speaking engagements. Currently, I’m scheduled to speak at conferences in Boston and Ft. Lauderdale this fall. Very exciting opportunities to share our core values vision and execution!
I am excited to be the featured solo show artist this month at the TVAA Downtown Dallas Gallery. Eight paintings will be hanging this month only in the gallery as well as a few pieces of pottery. Please check them out if you get a chance. If you’re planning a trip, let me know, maybe I can stop by and say hi!!! The TVAA downtown gallery is located in the Plaza of the Americas building on Pearl Street in downtown Dallas.
