My painting, "Marketplace of the Mind" (aka 'The Beast') was commissioned by the Dayton Metro Library as part of their Reimagining Works program. Measuring 6 foot square, this hand-stretched, acrylic on linen with copper foil accents piece is the largest 'serious' painting I have ever created.  The work is installed in the Northwest branch, located on the corner of Philadelphia and W. Hillcrest, Dayton, OH. The library will have an artist reception on Friday, April 22, 2016, from 1:30-5:30. I will have elephant buttons for the kids, so come check it out! 

"The land where the Northwest Library branch stands was once occupied by the Fairview High School (FHS). My painting pays homage to this history by combining FHS elements with the beauty of the Kuosi Elephant Costume, and the motto of the Dayton Public Library, which considers itself the "marketplace of the mind." A mother elephant and her calfs float surrealistically in front of a structure inspired by the front entrance of FHS. They carry with them healthy items found in a market. Bulldogs, the FHS mascot, anchor the corners of the decorative border which vibrates with colors and patterning drawn from the Kuosi Elephant Costume." ~Amy Kollar Anderson artist
