New Work: August 2011


 After You
48 x 70 inches
Acrylic and Charcoal on Canvas

Made for the Studio Gallery member show as part of the citywide 9/11 Arts Project launched by the Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery. Stories that grow out of tragedy last a long time, sometimes forever, but some stories from this particular event we can only imagine: The last words of the dying as the planes went down and the towers disintegrated. The unspoken prayers of the grieving. The heroic acts buried in flame and ash. Fragments of over 20 possible stories are documented in this piece about altruism, survivor's guilt, and how life has changed after 9/11.

August 31 - September 24, 2011
First Friday Reception: September 2, 6-8pm
Special 9/11 Event: Sunday, September 11, 4-6pm
Artists Reception: Saturday, September 17, 4-6pm

Dumbo Arts Center Open Call for Submissions: We invite artists and curators from all levels of experience to submit proposals for 2012. 3-4 exhibitions will be chosen for production in our gallery space at 111 Front St. in Dumbo, Brooklyn. For 2012, DAC will be organizing exhibitions around the theme of "Focus." Artists and curators are encouraged to interpret the theme as they see fit. We will consider all proposals, though we will admit a bias to installation, video, the very loud, the very quiet and/or the very small. Proposals can be for solo or group exhibitions. As DAC is a small (and nimble!) institution, artists and curators will have a very hands-on role in developing and installing the show. Proposals that include elements of public programming are encouraged. View prospectus for Exhibition Proposals to be realized in 2012. Deadline: September 12, 2011

Interview with The Frederick News-Post


Thanks to Lauren LaRocca for this article on my Delaplaine installation, The Distance Between, which ends August 21. There's a First Saturday reception on the 6th from 3-5pm, plus it's the big dog days event downtown. A lot of fun!

Tomorrow from 6-8pm is the First Friday reception for the all members show Unseen at Studio Gallery in Dupont Circle. My new painting, Evidence of an Unstoppable Heart, (below) is on view.

Stop by. Pet a dog. Have some wine. See lots of art.
