                                          Frida Kahlo

This is one of three 4 x 6 textile cards I created for the International Women's Caucus for Art fund raiser. The work will be displayed at the United Nations this fall along with many others that have been created to financially underwrite expenses for our traveling exhibits. I believe the cards will be sold after they have traveled through 2016 for 25.00.


This is the Peninsula WCA last exhibit of the season.  My exhibiting artwork is "Caution". The work is a recreation of the caution signs that were for many years on California Highways the 5 and 405.  My concern when I first saw the sign was that it was confusing to immigrants coming in from the Pacific Ocean. Who's boundary was it or was it as 
many immigrants saw a safe place to cross.  Many lives were lost due to these signs.
The exhibit location is Coastal Art League, HMB August 21, 2015 - September 20, 2015
hours are Wednesday through Sunday 12-5. Opening  reception August 22, 2015 5-7.
