I will have 5 new paintings included in the exhibition, Small Works II at the Jeffrey Leder Gallery in Long Island City (just around the corner from P.S. 1) that runs from September 15 through October 6. Opening reception is September 15 from 6 to 8pm. www.jeffreyledergallery.com
I will have two works on paper included in an exhibition titled Working it Out at the Painting Center in NY. The exhibition runs from June 18 through July 13. The show’s curatorial statement describes the show as: “Artists of all disciplines begin their creative process with preparatory drawings. This enables visual problem solving throughout the execution of an artwork that is both fluid and beautiful. Drawing can be an exploration of materials, mark making, the emotional tenor of a piece, compositional arrangements or color. Working drawings are the visual manifestation of a work in progress; a working idea. Typically, this work is not seen by the public. These are private musings that reflect thought processes. They are, by definition, incomplete. This exhibition will allow the viewer to see the private world of the artist’s creative process. “
Join Homesteady for the reception of their exhibition Heavy Cover on Thursday, May 30 from 6 to 8pm at the Providence & Worcester Depot located at One Depot Square in Woonsocket. Heavy Cover is an exhibition that will take shape over the month of May as Homesteady gathers data and artifact during fishing outings and post-studio fabrications that will add the narrative and connection points to the installation over the course of the month. Join us May 30th for the culminating installation. Big thanks to the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts for supporting this project!
Homesteady (my collaboration with Sam Duket) has completed the wood stripping of our boat project. Fiberglassing and resining to start in the next week or so and then we will be flipping it over for some serious rasping, shaping and sanding. Stay tuned as we prep this and other pieces for an upcoming exhibition in May 2013. Also, check back as we hit the water with this fish slayer for some record catches.
I will have some large-scale work on view at the new Green Space Gallery at TF Green Airport with fellow artists Joshua Enk and Ed Osborne. The work will be on view from September through January 4, 2013. Stay tuned for more info
