Mother/Daughter Show

Here's Mika Sorak , my daughter, and I at the opening of our show titled 
"Earth and Sky"  now showing at 
Indian Hills Community College in Ottumwa, IA 

The show is from Feb 1st to March 10th and is open to the public 
Monday-Thursday 7:15am to 8:30pm
Friday - Saturday  10am to 5pm
Sunday 3:30-10pm
These are the same hours as the IHCC's library.

Below are pictures I took before the reception began on Feb.1st.   Enjoy!

My Grandson Nevan had to pose! He's in the painting to the left.  He hung out all evening with Mom and Grandma.

I didn't post all the photos I took thinking you get the jest of the show.  
I especially like this last one.  I'm so thankful that Mika and I are close.  I used to drag her to the outdoor art shows I participated in. (This began when she was 10 yrs old)   As she puts it, she was cheap labor.  At the end of shows, she would barter my work with other artists for unique items. 

Now her son Nevan does the same thing with her.  She has taken up the outdoor show circuit through out the state of Iowa.  Her studio is known as "Thymelyglass Studio".. Mika started out in the Stained Glass industry.  She has been honored with  restoration of Tiffany windows and has worked with glass artists in Denver, CO and Phoenix, AZ.

This show was a GREAT way to start 2016.  Some of these paintings will be traveling to Clinton, IA for the one person show I have at their Art Center April 7th - May22nd.


  1. Great show! Everyone should go see it up close - the scale on some pieces is important.

  2. Wow, this looks like a very nice show. Both artists compliment each other so well. Sorry to miss the opening but definitely making the trip to Ottumwa.

  3. Looks like a great show. Sorry I missed the opening but will definitely have to make a trip to Ottumwa to see it.

  4. Saw your show this week. Simply splendid!
