The making of the Finnish Illusion 2018

About a year ago I had an idea that I wanted to do a group exhibition with my artist colleagues from Finland. I had a vision that it would be a small group of women artists who share the same pop cultural artistic vision as I do. I was so happy when I found two wonderful artists from Finland who wanted to go on the venture with me.

Katja Tukiainen and Maria Wolfram, are both from Helsinki and with a Master's in Fine Arts Degree. They both have amazing work, they are hard working gals with a positive attitude. I knew I had found the right group! I was even more thrilled when our exhibition proposal was accepted by Spruill Art Gallery, a beautiful exhibition space located in an incredible, historic 1867-1905 home made into an Art Gallery on Asford Dunwoody Rd, Atlanta.

So now for several months we have all been working on the new work we will be exhibiting. Our exhibition opens to the public on February 15th. One week prior to the opening Katja, Maria and I will begin working on a mural/installation in the gallery space. We are thrilled to be working together on this project!
