Nanette currently has three works on exhibit in Books Undone 2: The Art of Altered Books at The Gallery at Penn College in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. One of these is Nanette’s most recent electronic work, Leaving Digital which was also included in XXIII International Image Festival held in Manizales and Bogotá, Columbia this last spring. You can experience Leaving Digital here.

We both have mixed media prints in the traveling exhibition Printed & Stitched at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles in San Jose, California.

Our newest collaboration, Table of Traits, was on view at the Sonoma Community Center exhibition Resonance in Print. Both of these exhibitions were produced by the California Society of Printmakers. We will be showing Table of Traits in our upcoming Art Bias exhibition in July.
