There will be two exhibits in October in Sakai, Japan. I’ll be exhibiting alongside a group of artists from the area at Sakai City Museum and Gallery IROHANI. The sister city exchange I was involved with in 2010 was one of the most satisfying of my career. This wonderful group of artists invited us to visit and exhibit with them and our group of Berkeley and Oakland area artists hosted them the following year. Our friendship continues with this pair of exhibits.

It was a pleasure to have been interviewed for The Studio Work blog in March. The full interview can be found here.
As expected, seeing the work ofMichele Thébergein person is a much different experience than seeing it on a screen. The luminous layers and sense of space is not easily explained, but more readily felt. Her work stems from a meditation practice, and “my deep desire to share the experience of meditation in a visual way. To offer the sense of calm and expansion I experience.”
