BIG PINK BLANKET OF LOVE

In September 2019 Davis Gallery in Austin, Texas presented an exhibit honoring my daughter Kristin Heaton Peabody and supporting her legacy. Big Pink Blanket of Love, an invitational group show focused on love and community. 60+ artist friends creating small 4 x 4 pieces of pink hued art. They were handsewn together into a large wall installation, a big pink blanket of love. (While Kristin was going through treatment she often asked her friends and family for strength and to visualize the pink blanket of love for her.) The art installation will be donated to Dell Children’s Medical Center, Art of Giving 2020. The Art of Giving supports music and art therapy programs for patients at the hospital. Ten percent of the exhibit proceeds will benefit the Peabody Fund, and the personalized cancer vaccine initiative at UCSD. In addition to this collaborative quilt, an extended group show focused on love, gratitude, and family will feature original artwork by myself and over twenty other artist friends. A huge thank you to Davis Gallery for their very generous support. Grateful for the circle of family and friends who have consistently supported Kristin and our family. We can feel the love. A podcast interview with Scott David Gordon, Austin Art Talk, talks about the exhibit.

Circadian Buzz | Summer Group Exhibiton 2019

The Davis Gallery
Austin, Texas
July 20 – August 31, 2019
Opening Reception: July 20, 7 to 9 pm

Davis Gallery is pleased to announce Circadian Buzz; an extensive group exhibit focused on repetition and daily practice. Every active artist has a deep familiarity with their own daily practices, and each artist has their own sense of respect for repetition, a fundamental principal of any work of art. Each of the participating artists have created a new work, or carefully chosen work from the past, which uniquely recognizes these concepts. I plan to be at the opening reception, and hope I will see some of you there. It definitely should be a great exhibit. Honored to have my work represented in Austin by The Davis Gallery. Repetition of form and line is surely a foundation for my interest in art therapy. The monochrome palette also brings a dose of tranquility. Just Breathe!
