In the Quick Change Gallery at SPA

I've got three figures in the very cool Quick Change Gallery at Studio Place Arts (it's a repurposed phone booth!). It's called Offerings, because each figure is "offering" something to the viewer (and all of the things offered start with the letter B): a Brush, a Baby, and a Bird. You can also have a look on the SPA website and Facebook page.

And some closeups (all photos courtesy of SPA):

Don't forget that we will be having Open Studios at SPA this Saturday, February 8, from 1-3 PM. Almost all of our studios will be open, so come and visit!

People Hanging on the Wall

After making lots of relatively small-scale figures from found materials, I'm now working on 1/2 to 3/4 lifesize figures using found materials. They also hang on the wall, but they are larger than previous work -- which is a challenge and a delight!

There are twelve of them made so far, though I expect to do some tweaks and changes. They will be exhibited at J. Langdon in Montpelier, opening at the Art Walk on June 5, 2020 -- so there are four months until that happens!

I have the idea that it would be cool to parade them through the streets with music (one "carrier" holding each piece, dressed in black and  moving and manipulating the pieces, like puppeteers), winding up at the gallery, where the pieces would be hung one-by-one on the wall, creating the exhibition!

Only One Week Left for Long Thoughts

The exhibit of Long Thoughts at NVU in Johnson is wonderful. It's a beautiful space, and a good melding of two important bodies of my work. The last day is Friday, October 11, so hustle on over if you want to see it. If you can't, here are some images that will have to do.

The top image shows Digesting the Planet, installed at 24 feet wide. I'm hoping one of the Johnson students will make a video of it, which would be very cool.

The last two images show some of the eleven Long Haul pieces that are hanging in the gallery. Unlike the installation of these pieces at the AVA Gallery in Lebanon, NH, where they were installed at different heights and angles with respect to each other, these pieces are all parallel here, though at different heights. Thanks to Phil Robertson for this installation!

New Poster for Long Thoughts

The work I'll be showing at the Julian Scott Memorial Gallery will be long sculptures from Vanishment and Long Haul. Here's another poster with details about the exhibit that shows the Long Haul work. Thanks to Phil Robertson and Johnson students for creating two posters!

Installed and Ready for the Reception

The work is installed, under the excellent direction and hand of Julia Pavone! I am quite pleased with it, and look forward to a great reception and a good run in the space. Scroll down to see the invitation card for this exhibit and the upcoming exhibit at the Julian Scott Memorial Gallery.

I'm so pleased to have installed five of the pieces I made with chest X-Rays and the blinking lights illuminating the interior of their chests! You can see a short video of what that looks like.

Exhibit at North Common Arts

Come on over to my exhibit, Hanging Around, at North Common Arts in Chelsea, Vermont, from September 20 - November 9, 2019. The opening reception is on Friday the 27th from 6-8 PM.

This is going to be a really fun exhibit, with lots and lots of great figures made from wood, metal, bone, and found materials hanging around on the walls!

Exhibit at Johnson

The Long Thoughts exhibit will have work from my recent show at the Supreme Court (the long installation Digesting the Planet) as well as the long wooden boxes I showed at AVA last year.
