RSS (Random Studio Shot)

The commission piece for upstate is now completed and I am beginning to focus on my next upcoming show, scheduled for late January of 2012. I'm currently working on a larger piece that is 30" x 30" and using a lot of new material that I found recently at a great secondhand store in Mount Vernon, NY.

An important part of the creative process for me has always been the actual searching for and collecting of collage materials, especially when I am beginning a new body of work. Recently I started incorporating old album covers into the mix and absolutely love the intense color they bring to my work.

Artists Summer Institute (ASI)

I have been selected to attend the Artists Summer Institute (ASI), which is a free, five-day professional development intensive for 55 New York City artists working in all disciplines, offered through a partnership of Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Creative Capital.

Held at Building 110: LMCC’s Arts Center at Governors Island, the Artists Summer Institute offers a unique opportunity for artists to step outside their daily routines and focus on their professional skills and artistic goals in bucolic, community setting. The Institute combines the best of LMCC’s Basic Finance for Artists program and Creative Capital’s Professional Development Program (PDP) to provide a more comprehensive range of training, tools and resources for working artists. The Institute is designed to help artists build a path to greater sustainability and self-sufficiency. Participants will receive arts-focused professional training in the areas of strategic planning, verbal communications, marketing and promotion, Internet optimization, financial management and business planning.

The opening reception of Full Circle is on Saturday, June 4th from 6 - 8 p.m.

The exhibition is both a roundup and a reunion, and will emphasize the geometric form whose locus of points is equidistant from a given point. Among the highlights and new to the gallery is Barry Underwood, from Cleveland, Ohio, whose photograph, Parade Field is a documentation of an installation he created in the Headlands Center for the Arts during a residency there. Barry recently won a Focus Project award as well as the Cleveland Arts Prize. Alicia Lachance, also new to the gallery from St. Louis, will be appearing in the upcoming Midwest Edition of New American Paintings. The jurors were Julie Rodrigues Widhom and Pamela Alper, curators from the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. Glenn Fischer of NYC uses paper from vintage books and magazines that he finds in thrift stores to construct his collages.

Adam Lister Gallery – Group Show

I have two pieces of work included in a group show titled "Unfamiliar Territories" at the Adam Lister Gallery, Jan 14, 2011 - Feb 21, 2011.

Press Release:

Adam Lister Gallery is pleased to present our first exhibition of 2011, a group show featuring 15 artists, titled “Unfamiliar Territories”.

This exhibit brings together a group of artists that have a common ground of questioning our perceptions of the world within their work. Through modifying, investigating, and engaging in exploration for the purpose of discovery, each artist has formulated their own unique system of communication. The work in this show treads a fine line on the border of reality and imagination, incorporating elements and attributes from both sides. Visual language for these artists is not only a transmission of personal culture, but also a window into alternative views of the universe.

The artists exhibiting in “Unfamiliar Territories”, view the world through a combination of comparisons, calculations, schemes, concepts and recipes. They take the familiar and the obvious, and through a process of reformulation, present it as curious and unfamiliar. This reinterpretation defines itself as a pure, non-functional object introduced into the world through the mind and eyes of the artist.

Artists: Anna Jane Kocon, Bobby Coleman, Chris Duerk, Craig Hill, Eric Bos, Gail Vollrath, Geoff Ault, Glenn Fischer, Gwynneth VanLaven, Michelle Valenton, Phillip Scarpone, Sabine Carlson, Stephanie Rond, Steve Wanna, Travis Childers
