My current pieces are reflections of travel to Africa combining pattern and form found in traditional African fabrics, masks and ceremonies.

We are honored to have Eriq Hochuli, Curator for the Foothills Art Center as the judge/juror for this show.  Eriq Hochuli has been working in art exhibitions and education at the Foothills Art Center since 2013. As a curator, he works closely with artists to design and build shows that are ambitious, beautiful and challenging to the audience. He specializes in exhibitions with large human subjects that affect his community and spark conversation in the gallery. He loves to push the boundaries of what defines art and what can be done with media. As Foothills Art Center’s “one-man exhibitions department” he curates and installs 10-12 exhibitions per year and has an intimate knowledge of what makes for a beautiful installation. He is also the organizer of FAC’s famed Holiday Art Market which connects his community with original creations from 100 local artists each holiday season. “I do not believe the definition of the term “art” is a relevant conversation, but it is the qualities of individual work that can be accessed and appreciated when making a selection for a show. I love to see artists who push themselves, their media, and their subject matter to represent something entirely their own on the wall.
