losing ground, gaining perspective, provincetown, massachusetts
i will be making my curatorial debut with a four-person exhibition at gallery x at castle hill in provincetown, massachusetts, 5.30 thru 6.7.2013. the show will exhibit works from artists laura moriarty, lorrie fredette, paula roland and myself. the exhibition will be held in conjunction with the seventh international encaustic conference. more details on this tremendous conference can be found here. i’m quite excited about this exhibition and the opportunity to work with three artists i really admire and hope you’ll take just a moment to learn more about “losing ground, gaining perspective“.
mccoll center residency and studio 13 party “magical mystery tour“, charlotte, nc
starting at the beginning of april, i’ll be a resident at the mccoll center for visual arts through mid-august. the first couple weeks will be getting set up and preparing for one of the mccoll center’s parties, studio party 13. the theme this year is “magical mystery tour”, and you’re just going to have to come to see how i fit out the studio! hint… think psychedelic! for more information, visit the strawberry fields of the mccoll center here. the remainder of my residency will be no less exciting as i get to work, transitioning my sculpture from wall-hung to freestanding work, with the wax giving way to recycled materials. i invite you to come down and see me and the work in person in studio #216. for those who don’t have the opportunity to visit, why not!?! i will miss you, but please stay tuned to the site as i’ll be posting on my blog about studio developments and the continued development of my work. i might even have some video to share.
and still going on in the background is the continued development of “the plan.” last october, i was invited by the north carolina arts council to participate in their annual offering of creative capital’s core professional development program: “creative capital supports innovative and adventurous artists across the country through funding, counsel and career development services. our pioneering approach—inspired by venture-capital principles—helps artists working in all creative disciplines realize their visions and build sustainable practices.” this class was truly invaluable in presenting solid direction in fundraising, business management, marketing, etc., and honed the skills necessary to realize this project. be on the lookout for additional changes on this site, updated materials and your chance to participate in wonderful project combining fine art and the environment on a global scale.
