Views of the first ever “COMMA ROOM” that opened at the Haas Gallery of Art in Bloomsbury, PA and runs through Feb. 5.  This is a collaborative piece that is headed and curated by Judy Rushin and Carolyn Henne. Other artists included in this show are Chalet Comellas, Kevin Curry, Anne Stagg and Carlos Kempff.

Both of my works were made using the actual Cuban soil from the Viñales Valley that I ground up and turned into pigment- Below is a second work in the show titled “LG-Roig was Here (after Domingo Ramos)” (18” x 18”) and other installation views included the original COMMA BOX: VOL 1 (Ghost Objects) that I contributed a work titled “Genus Roigia” to.

So pleased to have been part of the early wave of female Texas artists that were invited to work at Flatbed Press in Austin. I used to do a lot of printmaking when I lived in Austin and Director Katherine Brimberry’s enthusiasm for all things printed was contagious-Hope to be able to work with her again.  Robert Faires of the Austin Chronicle wrote a great article about the show “WOMEN OF FLATBED: A RETROSPECTIVE” which is currently on view at the Elisabet Ney Museum in Austin.

“Valley of Earthly Delights (View of Vinales Valley from Los Jazmines Overlook)”,  36″x 48″  and is part of the “HECHO CON CUBA” series.  -Handmade Vinales earth pigment (brown) and manufactured oil paint (green background color) on canvas.
The title highlights the indulgent quality of many of the products grown in this fertile valley: tobacco, fruits, sugar & rum.
