Carol is pleased to note that she has received exceptional support for her painting from the Columbus community. For example, in 2017, the Greater Columbus Arts Council gave her a Professional Development grant, and a Supply grant.
Carol would like to express gratitude for this recognition and encouragement.
The Greater Columbus Convention Center, part of the Franklin County Convention Facilities Authority recently completed a $140 million expansion and renovation. In addition to more exhibit and meeting space, the convention center also expanded its art collection, showcasing more than 200 pieces of original work made by Central Ohio artists.
Carol was honored when her painting Circles and Squares 3 was chosen for this collection. This painting is 40″ x 60″, oil on paper on panel. It was completed in 2015.
The John Natsoulas Gallery in Davis, CA will show four of Carol’s paintings in its International Still Life Exhibition.
The show will feature artists from England, Poland, Spain, and Italy, as well as artists from our own United States. It will bring together historical and contemporary references for the still life with paintings by Guy Diehl, Boyd Gavin, Frank Damiano, Gregory Kondos, Wayne Thiebaud and other renowned US artists; international artists will include James Bland (England), Ilaria Roselli Del Turco (Italy) and Agnieszka Nienartowicz (Poland) among others.
The exhibition will run from January 3-January 27, 2018. The opening reception will be on January 6, from 7-9pm.

Carol is pleased to have joined Zeuxis, an association of still life painters.
Zeuxis was founded by Phyllis Floyd and several of her painter colleagues in her New York City loft in 1994. Since then, Zeuxis exhibitions have appeared in over 50 commercial galleries, museums, and college exhibition spaces across the country. These shows have been reviewed in The New York Times, The New York Observer, The New York Sun, and numerous other publications.
This activity is supported by a Professional Development Grant from the Greater Columbus Arts Council.
