Gordon will be playing background music for the art exhibit opening of his good friend Marina Powdermaker. Expect gentle improvisations on Celtic, folk and jazz themes, and perhaps even some musical interpretations of the artwork.

The exhibit runs June 1-30.

Artist Statement

 I work in the medium of mixed media collage.

My art involves multiple layering - constructing and deconstructing  canvases, boards or journal pages using paints, papers, crayons, markers, stencils, stamps, fabric, embossing powders, texturing pastes, found objects and whatever other materials asks to be included in a given piece.  Adding materials, pulling them back, adding more, each piece builds layer upon layer - until “Done” layers herself within me. Working with whatever material calls most loudly in a given moment, my pieces arise from surrendering to that deeply intuitive place which lives within us all.

My work expresses and celebrates joy, grace, gratitude, simplicity, Divine Feminine, communion, love, wholeness, love -Beloved.

Whether making or teaching art - it is all about connecting and dancing with the Divine spark of Inner Wisdom - and creating from there.
