When Art Finds A Home by Kim Roberts

I recently had the pleasant surprise of discovering one of my paintings hanging in a collector's library. This is one of my very earliest pieces that I did when I lived in Paris, in 2002. 
It now lives in Sun Valley, Idaho.

Wish you a happy, healthy and beautiful 2018!

UNAUTHORIZED SFMoma Catalogue by Kim Roberts

Last summer some creative folks in San Francisco designed an virtual art gallery for visitors to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Artists were invited to submit digital images of their work that would appear online only to viewers at the museum. The gallery would change whenever another artist uploaded a new image.

After the show--which lasted a few weeks--the organizers created a catalogue of the work. I had 2 pieces in the show, # 203 and #463.  You can see the catalogue

Accountability by Kim Roberts

Nothing like a committment to light a fire under you. It is so easy to just let things slide when you think no one is watching. I am guilty.

I've been so focused on where I think I'm headed as an artist that I have essentially ignored the day-to-day tasks that make me one in the first place. How can I call myself an artist if I am not showing my art? Art without an audience is not really art.

So after a long, lazy, blissfully ignorant sabbatical, (where I did, in fact, create a lot of work)  I am back on the blog, sharing it.
