I had the opportunity to stop by the Museum of Modern Art during a brief trip to New York city. After peeking at the Saks 5th Avenue holiday window displays and Rockefeller Plaza ice skaters [not to mention the liveliest Salvation Army bell ringers ever witnessed] I joined the crowded MoMA ticket line. A few minutes later and I had my pass to revisit some of my favorite paintings in the permanent collection. I also explored Jackson Pollock: A Collection Survey, 1934 – 1954.
One of my favorite parts of a museum visit is people watching. Observe the figures in the photos below. The figures not only show the artwork’s scale, but activate the museum environment.

I recently had the pleasure of working on the team to open Atlanta’s newest museum, SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film. The inaugural exhibition “Oscar de la Renta” features over fifty dresses from the esteemed designer ranging from 1965 – 2014. Additionally, guests can enjoy thirty current fall 2015 looks from new creative Director Peter Copping. We have welcomed over 8,000 guests to the museum in the three months the museum has been open to the public.
This exhibit is on display until December 31.
I enjoyed promoting the exhibition on local and national television, check out the links below!
Highlights from the Venice Biennale.
This exhibition features two new collage works, “I’ve seen the world, Done it all, Had my cake now” and “Diamonds, brilliant, and Bel Air now”.
Join Lynn and I today at 2pm at Desotorow for a gallery talk on the grass. We will explain the inspiration behind our current exhibition “Tell Us Where We Are”.
Reception on November 1 during the First Friday Art March.
“Tell Us Where We Are” features new mixed media works by Lynn Serulla and Rachel Evans. Referencing shared life experiences, each artist presents collage based pieces with meaning extracted from the personal drive to exceed satisfaction and achieve happiness. Themes of independence, shiny things, accepting love, and adventures culminate in a collaborative installation work that will both challenge and reinforce cultural stereotypes, and literally bring the gallery audience together.
Made possible the Exhibition Fellowship Program from Art Rise Savannah

Yesterday evening’s open studio was a success! It was a pleasure to meet so many fabulous members of Jacksonville’s creative community. I enjoyed touring the CoRK Arts District studios in addition to attending Lily Kuonen and Tiffany Leach’s Open Studio at Clay and Canvas. The night ended in celebration on the rooftop of Black Sheep Restaurant in 5 points, an overall charming experience.
I hope to visit Jacksonville again soon!
