Exquisite Corpse International

This year I was asked to play in the game... and the game was fun.  In the Exquisite Corpse game each artist is assigned a body section--head, neck to belly and legs.  No one knows who is doing what and what pieces will get assembled together.  On November 10, 2016 the art pieces were unveiled the Museum of Fine Arts in the form of a glorious art party and unveiling!   The pieces were displayed that night and then moved to Duncan McClellan glass for November's artwork... and now the Exquisite Corpse International 2015 & 2016 series are on display at the Chihuly Collection Gallery Friday November 25th 2016 until Sunday January 15, 2017!  

Here are some photos from that night, courtesy of Xina Scuderi,  Scuderi Studios and Exquisite Corpse International:


The Unveiling of my piece which includes head by Andrea Pawlisz, body by  James Michael McCracken and the legs by myself.

GO FUND ME!

2013 Kosharek Art Mural 

My first street art mural, standing with my 2 1/2 year old son.  

Paradise Cities show at the Morean Arts Center


I have started a"GO FUND ME" account to financially back my future mural projects.  Money is the one thing that holds me back from reaching higher goals.  If you believe in my art, if you think women should have artistic representation in a male dominated arts city--please donate to the cause.  I am excited to work even harder and make more female art happen.  Any amount helps, here is the link:




photos were taken by "Sade"Folasade Serrano and she was on assignment to interview me for an art college class!

Tomorrow on ABC's Morning Blend


Tomorrow morning on Tampabay's ABC morning show, Morning Blend, Amanda Cooper, curator of the Morean Art's Center and I will be giving a joint interview about the Paradise Cities show.  I specifically talked about my work and my Gretchen character!  

Other guests on the show include: Emily Ley, author of "Grace not Perfection," a book about moms/women who CAN have it all, and Chef Slim Campbell of The Soho Backyard, a Tampa, late night, award winning restaurant.   

Thank you to Lisa Rau, Brianna Rau, and Natalie Taylor!  I had a blast being on set and meeting the other people being interviewed.  I was a bit nervous talking about my work--it always feels like I'm a deer in the headlights!

Tune in, tomorrow, October 6th at 10am to ABC's Morning Blend!

Kosharek Art mural at the Blueberry Patch, Gulfport, FL

Part of this mural was started last year--the middle part on the corner of the building.  The rest was completed last week!  This was my first time on the top of a ladder this high.  I conquered my fear of heights and rather enjoyed it.  I had no idea as to what I was going to paint before I got there... and I took some time, stared at the grey walls and then went to work.  I think it's pretty freeing to just be allowed to do what you want and have the time and resources to do just that.  It gave me time to think and look inward as the hands stayed busy making art.
  
The Blueberry Patch is located:  4923 20th Ave South, Gulfport, FL

Embroidery

I'm pretty sure I missed the deadline to submit these to the book that I wanted them to be included in... which is a total bummer and not something I normally do.  ((insert sad face here))  Ahhhh... but such is life.  The scans of these pieces are way off in color due to the neon quality of the thread.
