Moab to Newspaper Rock, Utah

$ 360.00

I first went to Utah in 2011, on a long summer trip between Austin and California. In Moab I became one with red sandy rock mountains and arches. At Newspaper Rock, I saw the markings of ancient people leaving behind their symbols and messages on the stone. This painting is the memory of my eyes being opened to the deep and wide beauty of the West.

Callen Thompson Collaboration

Christine met Callie in 2011 at a dinner party at a pivotal moment in Christine's career where she unexpectedly established long term friendships that have proven nourishing for the soul and mind.  As both women ventured into new creative paths building their networks of like minded women the seeds were sewn for their love of one another's craft and this collaboration.  

Originally conceived as an in-store show, as a result of COVID-19 the collaboration moved online.  Callie created a series of one of a kind works curated by both women which Christine then translated into one of a kind earrings.
