I am pleased and honored to be exhibiting a piece(above and right) at the show Art into Life/Life into Art at The Pen & Brush, INC. Below is the information sent to me about the show, juror and exhibition location and times:

Art into Life / Life into Art
Celebrating Women’s History
Curated by Midori Yoshimoto
March 5th – 29th
Gallery Hours: Thurs.+Fri. 4-7pm / Sat.+Sun. 1-5pm
The Pen & Brush proudly presents Art into Life/Life into Art, an international multi-media exhibition curated by Midori Yoshimoto. This exhibition consists of art works that forge new connections between art and life in the 21st century. Within the context of women’s history, these artist’s consider the reaction of artists in the 1960s to the modernist credo of “art for art’s sake”.
Midori Yoshimoto is an associate professor of art history and gallery director at New Jersey City University. Her exhibitions include, Yoko Ono: Imagine Peace (2008), and For My People: The Art of Elizabeth Catlett (2006). She specializes in Japanese avant-garde art of the 1960’s. Her publications include: Into Performance: Japanese Women Artists in New York (2005), which interweaves art and life of five Japanese women artists including Yoko Ono and Yayoi Kusama; an essay in Zen’ei no Josei 1950-1975(2005); and entries in Yes Yoko Ono (2000). She is currently editing an issue of Women and Performanceon “Women and Fluxus” and co-editing a volume of Positions on “Collectivism in 20th century Japanese art.” Dr. Yoshimoto serves as the Chair of CAA’s Committee of Women in the Arts.
