Just wanted to mention....

That I visited my friend Keren Kroul's two person exhibition at Artistry in Bloomington, Minnesota on Friday night.  It is a spectacular show!  Of course I love my friend's gorgeous work, but I also discovered a fabulous sculptor, Nathan Hatch.

Keren Kroul....

Congratulations on the Minnesota State Arts Board Initiative Grant!  It is well deserved.

 I can't wait to see the work that gets made by Keren this year.  She paints these lovely, large multi panel watercolors that are map like depictions of memory.  Her use of color is really quite lovely.  But I think one of my favorite parts are the negative space shapes.  Please visit her website to see more work, and venues at which you can see it in person.  She is booked out nearly three years!
