INSIDE OUT



I was invited to show work at the wonderful Northwest Encaustic Studio in West Seattle run by artist Shaun Doll. Please visit his new website to see all that they offer and visit here to view more images from my show this month. I have been working on this series for a long time and some of you may have seen my work in other exhibitions last year. The following images are my newest paintings and I am looking forward to seeing so many of you at the opening this Thursday! See you there!

Sketchbook Project Volume 4 Tour- Brooklyn Library Permanent Collection











I made another sketchbook this year for the upcoming Sketchbook Project Tour.....but this time I experimented with encaustic dipped pages and drawing on the wax surface. I have to say it didn't come easy but I am happy with the results and plan to do more. I love books as objects and I especially like keeping records of ideas for inspiration later.

This is the 4th Sketchbook Project and it will tour at least 5 cities in 2010 and will also become part of a permanent collection library. Books will be available complete with library cards for people to check out while in the gallery. See the Art House website or my schedule listed here to find out if it will be showing near you.

The Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild in Woodstock, New York




"Synergy" Encaustic, mixed media on wood panel, Kristin Swenson-Lintault 2009

Last month I was invited to be part of the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild's Tenth Annual 5 x 7 show which was at the Kleinert James Art Center in Woodstock, NY. I was happy to donate work while hoping to help support their exhibition programs and events during the year. Well.....my work sold in a flash to a local Woodstock gallery owner and I plan to become more involved as a member in the coming months. I am excited to get to know more artists living in the Hudson Valley. I am a big fan of Nancy Azara and Joan Synder who were part of this show as well.

A detail photo of my painting is on the poster for the show.

I was part of a show titled the "10,ooo Project" at the Art House Co-op Gallery in Atlanta last month. Everyone made work with the same word in mind and over 1000 people participated....I usually would do some kind of 2D format so I thought I would try something different. I love my camera and I having been playing around with images from this piece to see where I can push this idea......I see something brewing.



Art House Gallery has changed locations and is now in New York. Starting January 2010 Art House will reside in Red Hook in Brooklyn. This will be a great venue and I look forward to participating in many more group shows there. Coming up I will be posting photos of my work for "The Sketchbook Project Library" that will be touring several cities again in 2010 including the new location in Brooklyn. Congratulations to Shane Zucker and Steven Peterman, founders of this awesome co-op of artists.
